  • Standard Aluminum Extrusion Die List
    This document contains information about standard and non-restricted dies. There are separate charts for round rod, square bar, rectangular bar, round tube / pipe, square tube, and rectangular tube.
  • Heat Sink Design - Aluminum Extrusions (.pdf)
    The purpose of this technical brief is to give the new designer or engineer the basics in the limitations of designing an aluminum extrusion. Extrusions are 2 dimension shapes that can be fabricated after manufacture to produce net shape parts. To help minimize cost and maximize efficiency extruded
  • Fiber Abrasive Finishing Systems for End-Deburring Extruded Aluminum Profiles
    as safety and esthetic are forcing the industry to supply sawn ends which are burr free and slightly radiused. This paper discusses an abrasive medium which is ideal for end deburring aluminum extrusions. When formatted into a disc brushing tool, it can be applied on a machine based system for manual
  • Casing the extrusion joint
    Aluminum-alloy extrusions form everything from cabinets to car chassis. Here are some ways to join them. 500-hp Ford GT supercars ride on a chassis made almost entirely of welded-aluminum extrusions. Properly designed adhesive joints spread loads over a large area and are oriented to minimize
  • Curved extrusion earns top honors
    An extruded aluminum roof rail for a Mercedes car took Grand Prize at a recent competition The Extrusion Technology for Aluminum Profiles Foundation, The rail highlights a new "rounding " process developed by in Germany, says judge Angel Rosario, Applications Engineer, ). The process reportedly
  • Smart ways to design with Aluminum Extrusions
    aluminum parts are often less complicated because the process lets designers put material only where it is structurally needed. This helps reduce the amount of material that will later be milled or machined away and thus helps reduce the part's total cost. There are two extrusion processes, direct
  • Medical Device Link .
    Aluminum extrusion design possibilities can be extended through the use of specialized presses and processes. The company can produce walls as thin as 0.030 in., and even less for some smaller extrusions. A circle size up to 35 in. is available. Tongue ratio, or the relationship of a leg length
  • Water Jet Cutting Machine - Tough Environment
    covered bearing wheels riding in the inner channels of an aluminum extrusion profile. After only 6 months in operation, the bearing wheels failed due to ingress of the cement dust. It was determined that the entire unit would need to be replaced or completely rebuilt. The fiber-cement siding
