Engineers across all industries are continually looking for new ways to save time and money. Cost savings can be extremely important to reduce overhead and increase profit. One of the best methods to lower costs for manufacturing is to create custom extrusion design for aluminum parts, products, and components. Unfortunately, many business owners incorrectly believe that it is too costly to design custom extrusion profiles. The truth is that extruded aluminum allows the manufacturer to eliminate steps in the fabrication process, not only to reduce waste and to streamline the production process but also to improve lead time and to save money on manufacturing over the lifecycle of the product itself.
Extrusion Solutions for Automotive Industry Businesses
While many industries rely on custom aluminum extrusion in manufacturing, the automotive industry’s use of custom extrusion design has grown by leaps and bounds. They have taken advantage of all the inherent benefits of the aluminum material itself and maximized the use of extrusion solutions for automotive industry parts, components, and products. Certain characteristics, such as a high strength-to-weight ratio, natural anti-corrosive properties, and ability to enhance function and aesthetics through the use of custom aluminum coating solutions, are just some of the reasons why automotive companies are choosing to design custom extrusion profiles.
Manufacturers used extruded aluminum to create complex profiles in one single design, which can help to save money, but also to produce a higher quality product. Instead of using various fabrication processes to weld, join, and assemble the parts to create a desired shape or profile, custom extrusion design can be used to improve functionality and eliminate machining to further save costs. It pays to work with an extrusion and fabrication service provider that has many years of experience working with profile design and custom aluminum coating solutions. Silver City Aluminum is a one-stop-shop, providing services for our clients from the initial design phase on through to extrusion, secondary operations, finishing, and shipping for consistent results and outstanding quality control every step of the way.
