Popular FAQs About Aluminum Extrusion
What is Aluminum Extrusion
During aluminum extrusion, aluminum material is forced into the shape of the die, forcing it to flow. Aluminum is extruded in this way to produce an elongated, rectangular piece with a continuous cross-sectional profile, which can be very intricate and detailed.
How Does Aluminum Extrusion Work
There are two ways to extrude aluminum: by hot extrusion or by cold extrusion. Both methods have their advantages. With hot extrusion, aluminum can be injected into the die rapidly and at a low pressure, while cold extrusion is able to produce parts that have a good surface finish and are resistant to oxidation.
Finishing Options for Aluminum Extrusions
- Basic mechanical finishing: Some aluminum extrusions can have their surface quality adjusted by buffing, bead blasting, or grinding before receiving another surface finish.
- Anodization: Anodizing aluminum extrusions gives them a scratch- and corrosion-resistant coat that is highly aesthetic.
- Painting: Painting is a simple and effective way to change the appearance and color of aluminum extrusions., and enables gloss or matte finish
- Powder coating: A powder coating offers comparable chemical resistance and quality to anodizing, and can be applied to metal parts.
- Silk-screen printing: Silk-screen printing is an inexpensive way to add text and logos to aluminum extrusions.
- Laser engraving: Using laser engraving, you can engrave details including text on an extrusion, and it won’t scratch. This makes it useful for essential information like part serial numbers.
What Kinds of Shapes Can be Extruded?
- Solid, without any enclosed voids or openings
- Hollow, with at least one void
- Partially enclosed, semi-hollow structure
Common Applications of Aluminum Extrusion
In aircraft, the food industry, heavy industry, and other industries, aluminum extrusions are used. Heatsinks, track profiles, and frame profiles are some examples of aluminum extrusions.
