Both extrusion and fabrication can be performed concurrently. While careful planning can eliminate the need for numerous intermediate steps, there are still some forms of fabrication that are essential to accomplishing the final objective. Silver City Aluminum is a leading provider of quality control measures for both standard and custom aluminum extrusion, and the company’s Southeastern Massachusetts facility also provides customers with fabrication, finishing, and specialized services. Our highly skilled technicians and engineers oversee every step of the process, which is all done in-house. We are committed to staying abreast of cutting-edge tools, processes, and procedures so that we can continue fulfilling customers’ orders to their satisfaction.
Quality Aluminum Extrusion and Customer Service
Our meticulous preparation for each order is just one reason why our eco-friendly aluminum extrusions are the best available. We never lose sight of the end goal, keeping in mind all the nuances and particulars of how the finished product will be used. We have found that collaborating with our clients early on in the design process yields the best results in terms of producing a final product that is tailored to their requirements. It is important to us that quality control measures be implemented at every stage of production, from initial design through extrusion, fabrication, finishing, and shipping.
We are able to provide superior quality and service to each and every one of our clients because we handle every step of the process in-house, beginning with profile design and ending with delivery. Our turnaround times are unparalleled, and we’re proud of that fact. From the time an order is placed until the time it is delivered is typically one to one and a half months for custom aluminum products made in a fabrication shop. Silver City Aluminum has its own fleet of trucks to deliver finished custom aluminum products to customers in as little as three to four weeks. That’s the usual waiting period. If a client has an urgent need, we can fulfill special orders and have them delivered within three to seven days.
Sustainable Aluminum Products for Industry
Silver City Aluminum’s engineering staff will collaborate with you after you place an order to help you get the most out of your unique profile’s design. With our combined knowledge, we can offer advice on how to design against corrosion, how to boost strength, and how to streamline the process to cut down on expenses. Our staff is here to assist you in developing environmentally friendly aluminum extrusions that will last for a long time and save you money. Our team will extrude aluminum to your exact specifications once we have your profile. All of our aluminum billets are 99.9 percent recyclable, and we source them from a variety of reliable sources. In order to save our customers money and reduce waste, we pre-cut the raw aluminum billet into the correct size, using pieces that are seven inches in diameter.
The materials are first heated in a long oven, and then, using about ten million pounds of pressure, they are pushed into the die shape to create the desired shape. After being extruded, the shapes are stretched to the appropriate dimensions using opposing stretchers and then cut to the specified length. After being heated to its maximum temperature, the aluminum is cooled to its final hardness. Our integrated and automated extrusion system allows for stringent quality control measures. To ensure consistent and reliable production, we have implemented a state-of-the-art PLC control technology based system that allows us to talk to our machines over the internet, monitor their status, and set their speed, among other parameters.
