When searching for the best material to use for producing a part, product, or component, it is essential to learn all you can about the inherent qualities and advantages before making a final decision. Aluminum extrusion profiles offer a wide range of industries with many unique advantages compared to similar metals and materials. Both custom and standard aluminum extrusions have benefits, including low-cost, quick production, and a natural resistance to corrosion. Durable, strong, lightweight, and environmentally friendly, there are many reasons why so many manufacturers are choosing to work with aluminum extrusion profiles today. At Silver City Aluminum, we offer a wide range of high-quality extrusion solutions for industry and perform all aluminum extrusion and fabrication, secondary operations, and finishing right here at our Southeastern Massachusetts facility.
A Cost-Effective Manufacturing Material
Most businesses have to choose between strong, durable materials and something that works within their budget. When it comes to aluminum extrusion profiles, you no longer have to pick one quality over another – you get it all. While there are some additional costs upfront for the design and manufacture of custom extrusion dies, it can pay off significantly in reduced secondary operations, such as welding and joining, and can even streamline production, improving lead times. Standard aluminum extrusions come in a wide range of stock shapes, including bars, tubes, and angles, either solid or hollow, depending on the needs of the customer. The cost of aluminum compared to other metals with similar qualities, including steel and copper, is significantly lower, providing your business with lower overhead costs for manufacturing.
Aluminum is one of the most plentiful materials on the planet and is also the most recycled metal in existence. Another advantage of this marvelous metal is that it can be recycled over and over again without ever losing any of its inherent qualities. All of the high strength-to-weight ratio advantages, natural resistance to corrosion, and excellent conductor of heat and electricity remain in the aluminum material, no matter how many times it gets recycled and used to make custom and standard aluminum extrusions. At Silver City Aluminum, we purchase our aluminum billet from several providers and use materials that are 99.9 percent recyclable. Make sure to ask about the different aluminum alloys that we use in the production of extrusion solutions for industry to learn more about the unique advantages of each option and how it could benefit your parts, products, or components.
