Frequently Asked Questions

Custom aluminum extrusion is a process where aluminum is forced through a die to create shapes with a cross-sectional profile that is tailored to your specific needs. This process allows for a high degree of flexibility in creating complex and precise shapes that meet the unique requirements of various projects and industries.

What is a custom aluminum extrusion?

One of the key reasons for the growth of aluminum extrusion applications is the nominal cost of dies. Extruding complex aluminum shapes in most cases is more cost-effective than forming, rolling, or machining.

Are custom aluminum extrusions expensive?

Our minimum order quantities vary depending on the complexity and size of the extrusion profile. However, we are committed to supporting projects of all sizes and can work with you to find a solution that meets your needs. Please reach out to us with your project details for more specific information.

Can you assist with the design of my custom extrusion?

We work with a wide range of aluminum alloys to accommodate different applications and performance requirements. This includes, but is not limited to, 6000 series alloys, known for their strength and corrosion resistance, making them ideal for structural applications. Please contact us for specific alloy availability and recommendations for your project.

What types of aluminum alloys do you work with?

The timeline for custom extrusion projects can vary based on several factors, including the complexity of the design, the type of aluminum alloy used, and the finishing processes required. Generally, lead times range from several weeks to a few months. We recommend contacting us early in your project planning phase to discuss timelines and how we can best meet your schedule.

How long does the custom extrusion process take?

What are your minimum order quantities?

Do you offer finishing services for extrusions?

Yes, we offer a range of finishing services for our extrusions, including anodizing, powder coating, and painting. These finishes not only enhance the appearance of the product but can also improve corrosion resistance and durability. Our team can help you select the best finishing option for your application.

How do you ensure the quality of your custom extrusions?

Quality is at the core of everything we do. We employ a rigorous quality control process that includes both in-line inspections and final product testing. Our facilities are equipped with advanced testing equipment to ensure that all extrusions meet or exceed industry standards and customer specifications.

Yes, our team of experienced engineers and designers can assist you with the design of your custom extrusion. We can help optimize your design for the extrusion process, ensuring the final product meets your specifications and is cost-effective to produce.
