Making your own unique extrusion design can help you save money on manufacturing, shorten your product’s development cycle, and boost quality. Working with Silver City Aluminum is a great way to get the results you want without wasting time and money if you are new to the idea of designing custom aluminum products or unsure of where to begin. In order to help you place an order and create a custom design that will meet or exceed your expectations, we have assembled a team of highly trained and experienced engineers, designers, and technicians. In addition to providing custom services, profiles, and manufacturing, we also offer a wide variety of stock shapes for those who prefer to use a standard extrusion die.
Quality Aluminum Products for Your Business
If you need custom aluminum products made, Silver City Aluminum is the company to call. Count on our years of experience working with aluminum alloys, designing extrusions, and developing profiles to boost corrosion resistance. For optimal performance, it’s important to keep in mind a few key design details. There are many factors to consider, one of which is the intended setting for use of the item. The final user and their context, including the natural world, remain our team’s primary focus throughout the design process. Picking the right aluminum alloy and tempering requires thinking about things like temperature, corrosion, and abrasion.
The how, where, and why of the product’s use will also inform the thickness of the walls formed in the aluminum extrusion profiles’ cross-section. Standard extrusion dies, whether for tubes, angles, squares, or other stock shapes, typically have uniformly sized walls to ensure consistent wall thickness during the extrusion process. Nonetheless, having walls of varying thicknesses is sometimes necessary to achieve unique shapes and sizes for the betterment of the overall project, which is why custom extrusion design is created in the first place. Keep in mind that extremely thin sections may result in higher prices and longer production times. To save both time and money, talk to our engineers about your design ideas as early as possible in the process.
Save Time and Money: Aluminum Extrusion Profiles
Even though the custom profile’s design is crucial to the project’s success, there are other services that can be used to improve your custom extrusion’s final product. Silver City Aluminum does much more than just make aluminum extrusions to order. In addition to our primary services, our fully operational machine shop in Southeastern Massachusetts also provides fabrication and secondary operations. Among the many services we offer, CNC fabrication and milling are at the forefront of technology here. Finishing services are also available, and they can improve the longevity and durability of your custom aluminum products by bolstering the material’s inherent resistance to corrosion.
Silver City Aluminum offers professional painting on our Polycron line in addition to powder coating and anodizing as finishing services. We go above and beyond the norm in the industry to provide paint that is applied at around 2mls wet thickness, guaranteeing excellent adhesion. Prior to being cured in one of our specialized custom ovens, all of the components are carefully inspected by hand to guarantee the highest quality and uniform color application from ceiling to floor. To give our customers the range of colors and textures they request, we collaborate with a number of powder coaters and anodizers. Clear, black, multicolor, and even custom anodizing finishes are available upon request.
