Aluminum Extrusion Capabilities

Direct Aluminum Extrusion

Direct extrusion, often called forward extrusion, is the most common metal extrusion method. With Direct extrusion, a high-pressure ram propels a material billet through a container. The material moves along the ram’s path, emerging through the stationary die’s opening. This method can be used for substantial-profile designs and yields superior surface finishes compared to indirect extrusion.

Indirect Aluminum Extrusion

With indirect extrusion, the material is placed into a container and secured. The extrusion die moves with a hollow ram over the material, forcing it through the die opening. Since there is no relative movement between the material and container, there is much less friction with this method, resulting in greater control over dimensional consistency, material properties, and grain size when compared with direct extrusion.

What is Aluminum Extrusion?

Aluminum Extrusion is kind of process how aluminum is shaped. An extrusion is produced by pushing an aluminum billet heated to 600 degrees Celsius through a steel die. The result in the extruded material emerging as a perfectly replicated cross-section of the die pattern.

Aluminum Extrusion Specification

  • Press sizes: 450T ~ 3000T
  • Tooling lead time: 2 weeks for small molds, 4 weeks for larger molds.
  • Post-machining: Full-service CNC cutting, threading, slotting, face milling, etc.
  • Tolerances: follow NADCA tolerances

Benefits Of Aluminum Extrusion

  • Cost-efficient
  • Operational flexibility
  • easy post-machining
  • Continuous production
  • Suitable for high production volumes
  • Compatible with a variety of raw materials
  • Effective compounding for material mixing
  • Achieves a favorable surface finish

Materials for Aluminum extrusion

  • Aluminum 1100 —Could be extruded into intricate shapes with an excellent brilliant finish.
  • Aluminum 3003 —The alloys in the 3000 series are typically exclusively extruded for heat exchanger tubes.
  • Aluminum 6063 — Suitable for ornamental applications with a good surface finish or difficult-to-extrusion features like thin walls or fine detailing.
  • Aluminum 6061 —can be used as a structural staple in the transportation and machined parts industries. a good choice for welded structural members like vehicles, trucks, trailer frames, railroad cars, and pipelines.

Surface finishing for aluminum extrusion parts

  • Painting can be used to finish metal sheet parts.
  • Powder coating involves applying a dry powder paint to the parts, which is then baked onto the part. This method is often used for parts that need to be used in a harsh environment.
  • Anodizing creates a durable, corrosion-resistant finish on aluminum parts. This is a chemical and electrical process which causes a thin oxide layer to form on the surface of the parts.
  • Plating: Extruded parts can be plated with electroless nickel, nickel, brass, tin, chrome, chromate, Teflon, silver, and gold.

FAQs About Aluminum extrusion

For extrusion applications, aluminum 6063 is a great option. It has good extrudability and can form complex shapes. But if you need more strength, aluminum 6061 is better. It has higher mechanical properties than 6063 and can handle more stress.

Castings are limited to metals with low melting points, such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper, have higher initial tooling costs, and mold life can be short. Extrusions are a better option in shorter production runs due to lesser start-up costs. Castings, unlike extrusions, are not constrained by sizes.
