What Is Aluminum Extrusion?
Why Choose Aluminum Extrusion Prototyping?

Aluminum extrusion is a high-volume manufacturing process used to create long, continuous shapes with a fixed cross-section from aluminum billets. Aluminum extrusions can create a wide variety of shapes, from simple tubes and angles to complex profiles with intricate details. This versatility makes them a popular choice for a wide range of applications. While aluminum extrusion is primarily used for mass production, it can also be a valuable tool for prototyping under certain circumstances. Here’s why you might consider aluminum extrusion prototyping:

Some prototypes can only be manufactured through Aluminum Extrusion.

Often, large-sized solid part prototypes or complex hollow part prototypes can only be produced using Aluminum Extrusion.

Curved aluminum profile

Need to achieve the same results as mass production

If your parts are intended for large-scale production using Aluminum Extrusion, and you want to see prototypes that replicate the final product, manufacturing your prototypes through Aluminum Extrusion is the correct choice.

Aluminum Extrusion Electronics and Technology

Only a small number of part prototypes are needed.

When you only need a small number of part prototypes, using Aluminum Extrusion Prototyping offers better cost-effectiveness compared to full-scale Aluminum Extrusion manufacturing.

You Must Know
Before Starting Aluminum Extrusion Prototyping.

Aluminum extrusion processes.

Aluminum extrusion has many different processes.

1

Direct extrusion

Direct extrusion is the most basic aluminum extrusion process. It involves forcing molten aluminum directly through a die.
2

Indirect extrusion

Indirect extrusion is a process that uses a ram to push molten aluminum through a die.
3

Semi-solid extrusion

Semi-solid extrusion is a process that uses aluminum billets that are below the melting point.
4

Liquid extrusion

Liquid extrusion is a process that uses molten aluminum billets.

Aluminum extrusion can use a variety of materials

1

Pure aluminum

Pure aluminum has good conductivity and thermal conductivity, is easy to process, but has low strength.
2

Aluminum alloy

Aluminum alloy is an alloy of aluminum and other elements (such as copper, manganese, magnesium, silicon, etc.). Aluminum alloys have higher strength and hardness, but their conductivity and thermal conductivity are not as good as pure aluminum.
3

Other materials

Other materials that can be used for aluminum extrusion include copper, magnesium, titanium, etc.

surface treatment for aluminum extrusions​

surface treatment methods for aluminum extrusions

1

Anodizing

Anodizing is an electrochemical treatment process on a metal part surface to form a durable, corrosion resistant and attractive finish. It is widely used in aerospace, automotive and defense industry for components requiring high durability.
2

Polishing

Polishing is the process of using a polishing wheel and abrasive compounds to reduce the surface roughness and increase the gloss of the metal. This method improves the aesthetic appeal of the metal and prepares it for further surface treatments or coatings.
3

Electroplating

This process changes the surface characteristics of a metal by depositing thin layers of zinc, nickel, chrome, or other metals onto the base metal. Electroplating enhances the durability, appearance, and corrosion resistance of the components.

Aluminum extrusion Prototyping Applications

Aerospace

Aerospace and Defense

In aerospace and defense, aluminum extrusions are used to prototype structural components for aircraft and spacecraft, as well as parts for missiles and other defense systems. The durability and resistance to harsh environments of aluminum alloys make them suitable for these applications.

Automotive

Automotive Industry

Aluminum extrusions are used in the automotive industry for prototyping components such as chassis parts, brackets, and structural elements. The lightweight and high-strength properties of aluminum make it ideal for vehicle design, where fuel efficiency and performance are critical.

Aluminum Extrusion Injection Molding

Architectural and Structural

Aluminum extrusions are used in architectural prototyping for building frameworks, window and door frames, and support structures. The material's resistance to corrosion and its ease of fabrication make it a popular choice for construction projects.

Aluminum Extrusion Electronics and Technology

Electronics and Technology

Aluminum extrusions are used in prototyping for electronics enclosures, heat sinks, and other tech-related components. The material's thermal conductivity and electromagnetic shielding properties are advantageous in electronic device design.
