What is Aluminum Extrusions?

What is Aluminum Extrusions?

Aluminum extrusions are shaped pieces of aluminum produced by heating aluminum blocks and pushing them through a die shape to create specific patterns. Extrusions can be manufactured in many sizes and in almost any shape for which a die can be created. Extruded aluminum offers durability and structural strength, and it is fully recyclable.

Different alloys of aluminum are processed at different temperatures. The temperature is measured as the aluminum extrusions exit the die to confirm the proper speed for the process. The aluminum extrusions are sometimes cooled with water or air as they exit the die. The extruded metal goes to a cooling table to further reduce its temperature.

The cooled extruded pieces are placed on stretching equipment to straighten and harden them. Cooled and stretched aluminum extrusions can be cut into whatever lengths are required. Finally, the pieces are aged at room temperature or placed in an aging oven where they are heated to increase hardness and to temper the metal.
