Dedicated to providing each client with the absolute best standards of quality control and service, our mission at Silver City Aluminum is to deliver a superior custom aluminum extrusion product that meets or exceeds expectations. We maintain our focus on the application of the finished product itself, which helps us to keep all specifics of every part, component, and piece that we produce for its intended end-use. Our many years of experience working with aluminum extrusion profiles, supporting a wide range of industries with our services, can work to your advantage. Whether you need standard aluminum extrusion industry profiles like rods, bars, and angles, or if you require specialty services, such as custom shapes, unique finishing solutions, or heli-coiling in New England, you can count on our team to help you achieve all of your goals.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
When you contact Silver City Aluminum to discuss your needs for custom aluminum extrusion design, you will work directly with our team of highly trained and experienced engineers and technicians who can help point you in the right direction and give you the expert advice you require. We discovered that the more we are able to get involved in the process of product development, the more we are able to help our clients create a finished design to meet their needs. We take pride in our ability to get fully involved in the design process for every one of our customers’ projects. This extra step helps us to stay ahead of the curve with the aluminum extrusion industry while improving both quality control and lead times for every order we fill.
Speaking of lead times, you will be amazed at how quickly we can create standard and custom aluminum extrusion profiles according to your specifications. The industry standard is 30-45 days from the date the order is placed until the day that it is delivered to the client. At Silver City Aluminum, our standard lead time is just three to four weeks maximum, and we can even deliver the finished aluminum extrusion profiles via our own fleet of trucks. We provide services to clients here in Southeastern Massachusetts, as well as throughout the northeastern states and across the country. We can even do special emergency orders for clients in a pinch, delivering custom aluminum extrusion orders in as little as three days to a week.
Quality Materials – Professional Results
We begin with 99.9 percent recyclable aluminum, which we purchase from several different suppliers. Once we receive the billet from our suppliers, we cut the seven-inch diameter pieces into the proper size, according to the order we are preparing to fill. This helps to minimize scrap and reduce costs for our customers. Our cuts are based upon the length and the weight of the finished profile. Once the billets are properly cut, they are loaded into a long oven and pre-heated to a specific temperature based on their unique alloy characteristics for proper extrusion. The heated metal is then pushed at approximately 10,000,000 pounds of pressure through the customers’ steel profile to create the desired shape. This can be a custom aluminum profile or a standard die.
Everything that we do from start to finish maintains a focus on quality control. Every component in our extrusion system is top of the line, fully integrated, and completely automated. We utilize advanced PLC control technology to communicate with our machines via the Internet. Our engineers and technicians are able to see all of the related data, including how the machine is functioning, the rate of speed, the extrusion recipe, and all other variables to ensure consistent and dependable quality control. Even our finishing solutions exceed industry standards, providing a complete four-stage pre-wash system that includes an etch, clean wash, neutralizing wash, and then a standard pre-wash to guarantee excellent adhesion to the aluminum materials for long-lasting results.
