   Services Offered:       
   Your choices are...         
   Design Assistance / Review       Suppliers can assist with concepts, manufacturing costs, manufacturing techniques and material considerations. Suppliers may also be able to assist in upgrading or redesigning, re-evaluating or modernizing existing products to increase performance and/or reduce manufacturing costs. Some suppliers offer material sourcing and computer aided design (CAD) modeling. 
   Die / Tool Fabrication       Suppliers design and produce tooling to facilitate part fabrication. Typically, extrusion uses dies through which the material is extruded or pultruded. 
   Prototype / Short Run       Suppliers can create prototypes or perform small production runs for concept definition, market testing, or product introduction. 
   High Volume Production       Suppliers are capable of performing high-volume production runs. Equipment dedication and run-time depends upon part and order specifications. 
   Assembly Services       Suppliers perform secondary operations and assembly services such as electro-mechanical assembly, ultrasonic and heat welding, printing, painting, bonding, and machining. 
   Specialty Packaging       Suppliers provide part packaging such as tape, reel, or tray packaging for specific client requirements.

   Materials      Material selection considerations include tensile or impact strength, magnetic and electric properties, and corrosion resistance.  Material flow during the stamping or forming process is another significant consideration when deep draws or especially thin or thick parts are desired.
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum exhibits many useful qualities for extrusion. These include material formability, high specific strength, versatility in custom profiles, and corrosion-resistant properties. Aluminum is used for many structural and industrial part extrusions. 
   Bronze / Brass       Bronze and brass extrusions are used in diverse applications such as architectural finish details, plumbing fittings and components, and the manufacture of musical instruments. 
   Copper       Copper is an important material in the plumbing, electrical, electronic, and architectural industries. It is valued for its good electrical conductivity (for electrical wire and contacts), its formability, and its architecturally aesthetic properties. 
   Exotic Metals and Alloys       Exotic metals and alloys include beryllium copper, beryllium nickel, niobium, tantalum, and titanium. Because of their properties, they are used in specialized applications. 
   Precious Metals       Companies perform extrusions of precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum. Industrial applications include electronic connection terminals. Other applications include gold foil for the printing industry and other specialty services. 
   Steel / Stainless Steel       Companies extrude steel and stainless steel. There are many different types of steel, including carbon and cold-rolled steels. 
   Other       Other unlisted or unusual, application-specific materials.

   Secondary Operations       
   Your choices are...         
   Anodizing       Anodizing is a galvanic finishing process well-suited to aluminum and its alloys.  Anodize finishes can be hard for wear-resistance applications, or can include corrosion-resistant properties or a wide variety of colors. 
   Bending/Forming       Bending or forming is a secondary process to further the shape of the extrusion. 
   Cutting       Cutting is a secondary operation for making cuts, holes, notches, etc., into the extrusion. 
   Drilling/Punching       If required, holes can be placed in the extruded profile using drilling or punching techniques. 
   EDM Cutting       Electrical discharge machining (EDM) cuts metal via discharge from an electrode. The two primary types are wire EDM, in which the electrode is a thin wire typically made of brass or other alloys, and ram EDM, in which the electrode is a specially shaped piece of graphite or copper alloy. EDM is noted for tight dimensional tolerances and high finish quality without secondary operations such as lapping or grinding. 
   Electroplating       Electroplating is a finishing process often used for materials such as brass, bronze, and copper.  A wide variety of colors and textures can be achieved. 
   Embossing       Embossing is a secondary process that places three-dimensional (lowered or raised) patterns on the extrusion. 
   Grinding       Grinding provides smooth and precise material finishes. It can also be used to finish high-hardness wear surfaces. 
   Heat Treating / Stress Relieving       Heat treating is a broad category of processes for treating metals. Processes include annealing, passivation, hardening, etc. Stress relieving may be important to relieve residual stresses imposed during the extrusion process. 
   Machining       Suppliers can perform machining operations such as turning, milling, and boring on extruded parts. 
   Painting / Powder Coating       Painting and powder coating apply decorative and/or protective finishes. Coatings are usually thicker than plating or anodizing finishes. 
   Printing / Labeling       Printing and labeling techniques are used for inventory management and identification purposes, and include processes such as etching, stamping and screen printing. 
   Tape/Adhesive Application       This secondary process applies adhesive or tape. 
   Water / Abrasive Jet Cutting       Water jets and water abrasive jets rely on highly pressurized water (20,000 - 60,000 psi) flowing through a nozzle or "jewel" approximately 0.010" in diameter.  Advantages include almost no material heating during cutting, low side loads, and ability to achieve complex shapes and tight inside radii. Low fixturing costs and fast setup and programming times make this process very suitable for prototypes or short runs.  It is most widely used for two-dimensional cutting; three-dimensional machining is possible in specialty applications. Pure water jets are typically used to cut very soft material such as fabrics or rubber; metals usually require abrasives in the stream.  "Water jet" is a generic term that is sometimes used to cover both processes. 
   Welding       Welding joins metals and metal-extruded parts by melting and re-forming a metal bond between materials, with or without additional filler metal. 
   Other       Other unlisted or specialized secondary operations.
