Our finishing department offers anodizing, powder-coating, and painting that goes above and beyond industry standards to ensure quality results. If you need custom aluminum extrusion and services, look no further than Silver City Aluminum.

Highly Trained Engineers & Technicians

One of the reasons why our service stands out from the competition is our team of highly trained and experienced engineers and technicians. While other aluminum fabrication shops might excel at delivering quality standard aluminum extrusions, we go the extra mile to help our clients design and manufacture custom aluminum extrusion according to their unique needs and specifications. In our many years of experience, we have discovered that the sooner we can start working with a client in the development phase of a product, the better equipped we will be to provide the services required to get the job done right. Learning how to improve the natural qualities of aluminum alloy through extrusion, such as increasing resistance to corrosion or improving protection from extreme environments, can help to produce a better product.

State-of-the-Art Equipment

In addition to working hard to attract, train, and maintain top-level engineers and technicians, Silver City Aluminum has also created a state-of-the-art facility with the latest technology used for everything from extrusion to fabrication, secondary operations, finishing solutions, and shipping. Quality control is an essential part of the work that we do, so we provide control checks at many stages throughout the manufacturing process. We hold ourselves to the highest quality standards, and it is our goal to provide each client with a finished product that exceeds their expectations. Located in Southeastern Massachusetts, our facility features Emmegi CNC machines for long part fabrication and Fanuc Robo Drill units for the fabrication of short parts. Our team also uses pneumatic and hydraulic punches, B&O precision saws, and high-end mitering equipment for a wide range of operations.

Top of the Line Extrusion Equipment – All of the components in our extrusion system are fully integrated and automated. We use the advancement of PLC control technology, which allows us to communicate with our machines remotely via the Internet from any location in the world. This helps us to monitor each machine to determine how it is functioning, the rate of speed, the extrusion recipe, and other essential variables for consistent and dependable quality control. Our cooling table is 160-feet in length and allows us to effectively stretch the custom and standard aluminum extrusions to the specified length before cutting it according to the client’s needs. We use custom ovens to heat treat and harden the aluminum to its maximum capacity.

We Exceed Industry Standards

Everything we do at our one-shop-stop aluminum fabrication shops is designed to go above and beyond the industry standards. We strive for perfection in everything that we do in relation to extruded aluminum. Even our painting services are designed with a custom four-stage pre-wash system that includes an etch, a clean wash, a neutralizing wash, and then an industry standard pre-wash to guarantee the best possible adhesion to the aluminum materials. Our paint line runs nearly non-stop, offering quality Polycron application after the pre-wash process at approximately 2ml’s wet in thickness. All of the parts are constantly monitored as they pass and are checked by staff to ensure top quality results and consistent color application. The materials are cured through a baking process in one of our custom ovens and are taken off the line one at a time by hand so they can be inspected by our team of highly-trained technicians.
