The aluminum extrusion industry has played an incredibly significant role in the development of industry solutions required for the advancement of many unique products, parts, and components used around the world today. At Silver City Aluminum, we are proud of the work that we have done to help our clients with the design and engineering of custom aluminum products that have been used to support new ideas in automotive, marine, lighting, construction, and consumer goods, as well as other essential industries. Our many years of working with clients have provided us with valuable insight that has helped us to be an asset to new customers operating in a variety of different fields. Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers and technicians has done it all, from hollow aluminum tubes to aluminum doors and windows designed to improve efficiency and maximize thermal control.
Some of the challenges that we have been able to meet through the design and manufacture of custom aluminum products have set the standard for new technology and developments. Our experience has ensured that we are able to work with unique materials and provide guidance for custom products. Some of the products that we design and extrude for clients on a regular basis serve the marine industry. Custom boat rails for sail boats and power boats, standard boat railing and decking, structural materials, and even docks are just some of the projects that we have worked on at Silver City Aluminum. We can create just about anything that someone in the marine industry might ever need with custom design for aluminum products. There are many advantages to choosing aluminum materials for marine industry solutions in hollow aluminum tubes, aluminum doors, and windows.
The automotive industry aluminum is on the rise, and we are proud to be a part of this development, which benefits not just the manufacturers, but consumers as well. Aluminum has a high strength-to-weight ratio, which means that while it comes in at just one-third the weight of steel, it is strong enough to be used in the development of consumer, transportation, and industrial vehicles. Our team has become extremely proficient at producing collars for the automotive industry. We start by extruding the pieces into long lengths before we cut them into smaller pieces. Similar to other projects we develop for our clients, those smaller pieces are then used to fabricate opposite collars. There are many benefits to manufacturing in this way, creating more cost-effective solutions for our clients while creating an effective and durable alternative to steel.
Specialty Extrusion Solutions
Our team of engineers and technicians has helped clients to create many specialty aluminum products over the years. We can create telescoping profiles that are designed to fit perfectly into one another. Some of the industries that utilize this specialized type of extrusion include display companies. We are able to keep each profile at such a tight tolerance that the smaller telescoping shape will fit perfectly inside the other to create a very snug and secure product. We have also worked extensively in the development and extrusion of liquid nitrogen to gas exchange cold sinks for big holding tanks used by hospitals, commercial buildings, municipal public buildings, and industrial facilities. Snow-making guns for resorts are incredibly effective and efficient when made with aluminum extrusion compared to other similar applications.
In addition to design and engineering for the extrusion portion of manufacturing, we also provide fabrication and secondary operations services, including de-burring, heli-coiling, assembly, punching, mitering, precision sawing, and more at our Massachusetts facility. Finishing solutions can help to increase the durability and function of a part, component, or product, extending the life of the completed project, adding texture and grip, or offering aesthetic benefits. We do all of this work in-house at our one-stop extrusion, fabrication, and finishing shop to provide our clients with the best possible results and ultimate quality control.
