Aluminum Industry Solutions: Designing Profiles for Industry

One of the areas that we specialize in at Silver City Aluminum is in the development and design of custom aluminum extrusion profiles for industry. We have proudly served many different industries, including construction, the New England marine industry, public transportation, LED lighting, and have created extrusion solutions for automotive industry needs. We take care of our clients’ needs from the early development phases on through extrusion, fabrication, finishing, and shipping, to ensure complete customer satisfaction. Our one-stop-shop facility can provide everything from specialized CNC fabrication services to the application of custom aluminum coating solutions, depending on the needs of the client.

Automotive and Transportation

Of all the industries that we serve, our work with automotive and trucking industry project development has been one of the most exciting. Our many years of working with the New England marine industry have helped us to have valuable insight into the needs and requirements of vehicles for better strength, durability, and value. This work has provided us with the hands-on experience, techniques, equipment, and methods necessary to get a jump start on placing orders that require specific materials and products. We can help you to create aluminum industry solutions that are perfect for the intended end-user and other goals that you have for this project.

Our team can offer a wide range of special services and applications to create extrusion solutions for automotive industry and trucking manufacturing. Basically, anything that could be created is possible with our custom solution services for profiles up to eight inches in diameter. Liquid nitrogen gas exchange cold sinks for big holding tanks at hospitals and large industrial sites, as well as custom collars for automotive industry clients, are just two examples of the work that we have done. We extrude the pieces for the collars into long lengths and then precisely cut them into smaller pieces, based on the specifications provided by the client. This process helps to reduce costs, increase lead time, and make the collars more cost-effective for the customer.

Marine Industry Solutions

The New England marine industry is another area that we have worked with extensively at Silver City Aluminum. Some of the products that we design and extrude on a regular basis include items specifically for the marine industry. We don’t just serve clients here in the northeastern region, but all around the globe. Boat rails, custom boat rails for sailboats, powerboats, and deep-sea fishing rail mounts, supports, and systems, as well as aluminum decking and docks, are just some of the aluminum industry solutions that we create. Structural materials and just about anything that someone in the marine industry might need with either standard or custom aluminum coating solutions to withstand the extreme salt and freshwater environment can be created at our facility.

Aluminum is the perfect choice for marine-based products. It has a natural resistance to corrosion that makes it strong and durable for use out on the ocean. Custom aluminum coating solutions can be used, including powder-coating and paint, to increase the resistance against salt water and exposure to other corrosive materials during use. A high strength-to-weight ratio makes extruded aluminum an excellent material for the New England marine industry, which frequently sees extremely low temperatures, snow, ice, and other winter weather. Unlike steel, which can become brittle and damaged in cold weather, aluminum increases in strength when it is in a freezing environment. Speak with one of our team members about all of the other benefits associated with choosing aluminum.

LED Lighting Industry

Used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, extruded aluminum materials for track and LED lighting are extremely popular. This is one of the most widely requested types of lighting materials by our clients, so we have become quite proficient in this area. One of our specialties at Silver City Aluminum is in the design and development of custom aluminum tracks for just about any type of lighting fixture. We manufacture LED lighting solutions for consumer manufacturers, architectural design, and industrial construction, creating products that conform to the specific needs of our clients.
