Aluminum products are all around us, providing valuable benefits in ways that most people don’t even understand or appreciate. The world’s most plentiful metal is also number one in recycling, making it extremely affordable and friendly to the environment. As a result, there are many industries that rely on aluminum for the manufacture of various parts, products, and components. Standard extrusions and custom aluminum extrusion design can be seen everywhere, from large architectural structures to tiny components inside computers. Aluminum extrusions can be designed to streamline the manufacturing process, reduce energy consumption, and provide quality products that yield long-lasting results.
Extruded Components for Industry
One of the types of aluminum products that you rely on every day in many different types of computers is the extruded heatsink. The extrusion process is able to create very intricate profiles with tight tolerances to deliver quality results without a lot of secondary operations. Vibratory deburring and custom finishing solutions may be all that is required to produce a very complex and valuable extruded heatsink for the computer and electronics industries. Aluminum extrusion solutions feature a very excellent surface finish after the extrusion process, which makes them an ideal candidate for surface finishing, such as painting or anodizing.
Custom and standard extrusions can be made very quickly and at high volumes in our Southeastern Massachusetts facility to provide our customers with the parts, products, and components they need in a short amount of time. The industry standard for custom aluminum products from start to finish and delivery is between 30 and 45 days. At Silver City Aluminum, our standard lead times are between just three and four weeks, with options available for emergency services in a miraculous three to seven days for our loyal customers. Our team of highly trained and professional technicians and engineers create custom aluminum extrusion solutions that exceed expectations – and industry standards – each and every day, serving clients in New England, across the country, and around the globe.
Standard Extrusions and Profiles
Some of the most basic shapes used in aluminum extrusion solutions are known in the industry as “standard” aluminum extrusions. These standard profiles include bars, tubes, and angles. The tubes can either be made into square, rectangular, or circular shapes, as well as in hollow or solid varieties. Over the years, we have collected an extensive menu of dies for standard extrusions that our customers can choose from to get the parts and components they require for manufacturing. For detailed stock information, make sure to contact our team and ask about our Standard Profile Catalog. In addition to standard profiles, we also offer complete engineering and design support for the creation of custom aluminum extrusion dies.
The initial investment in the design and manufacture of a new steel profile for extruding aluminum products may prevent some clients from going the custom route. However, once the design has been created, the cost savings associated with creating custom aluminum products instead of having to invest time and money into fabrication and other more intensive secondary operations can be seen. A majority of the orders that we take at Silver City Aluminum are for custom aluminum extrusion profiles. Our team of highly trained and experienced engineers can help you to maximize the return on investment for your custom aluminum extrusion solutions. Simply contact one of our staff members to discuss your ideas for custom extrusion design.
