Aluminum extrusion is a versatile manufacturing technique that forces an aluminum alloy material into a metal extrusion die with a consistent cross-sectional shape. A large ram pushes the heated aluminum billet through the die with an extrusion or hydraulic press and leaves through the die aperture.

Extrusions are well-known for their high strength, light weight, and superb conductivity, making them an excellent choice for a wide range of end-use applications. For example, frames, enclosures and heat sinks. Because of the much lower unit price, it is the most cost-effective for high-volume and low volume runs.

aluminum 6061 extrusion

Alloy 6061

6061 aluminum boasts high weldability, toughness, and corrosion resistance, ideal for automotive, marine, and electronic components.

aluminum 6063 extrusion

Alloy 6063

6063 alloy is heat-treatable, cost-effective, with enhanced corrosion resistance and strength, ideal for heat sinks, trims, and architecture; finer grain than 6061 and finishes well.

aluminum 7075 extrusion

Alloy 7075

7075 is often used in aircraft and aerospace applications. This alloy boasts good fatigue strength and average machinability, but may have less corrosion resistance.

aluminum 2024 extrusion

Alloy 2024

Favored in aerospace for its high strength-to-weight ratio and fatigue resistance. While weldability is limited, 2024 offers good workability and becomes stronger with heat treatment.

aluminum 1100 extrusion

Alloy 1100

Purest aluminum alloy, 1100 is known for its superior corrosion resistance, high thermal conductivity, and excellent workability, making it suitable for chemical equipment and kitchenware.

Aluminum Extrusion Applications

Our aluminum extrusion capabilities cater for a wide range of applications. We offer high-quality aluminum extruded parts applicable to various aluminum extrusion companies. These include:

Aluminum Extrusion Process

We rely on our latest technology and equipment to help our clients reduce product costs and development time by delivering prototypes and end-use parts faster and more accurately. Here are the processes we use to make aluminum extrusions:

Direct Extrusion

In this process, a high-pressure ram forces the aluminium billet or heated aluminum through a heated walled container. We often use direct extrusion due to its more significant profile designs and superior quality finishing capabilities.

Indirect Extrusion

We provide top-grade aluminum extrusions using indirect extrusion, where the billet and container move together while the die is stationary. This method reduces friction, ensures better heat control, and results in superior grain structure and mechanical properties.

Hot, Warm, Cold Extrusion

We offer hot, warm, and cold aluminum extrusion services. Hot extrusion heats the billet beyond recrystallization, while warm and cold stay below this point, enhancing the aluminum’s strength and hardness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can order custom aluminum extrusion profiles from RapidDirect. Leveraging advanced manufacturing technology, they deliver high-quality, tailor-made profiles for diverse industries. The user-friendly platform ensures easy design uploads and instant quotes. With transparent pricing, quick turnarounds, and industry expertise, RapidDirect stands out as a premier choice for custom aluminum extrusions.

Different factors may influence the costs of your aluminum extrusions. These include labor and production costs, die and tooling costs, surface finishing, production volume, and post-production operations. However, we ensure your aluminum extrusion project is cost-effective as possible.

Aluminum extrusions are usually rigid and stronger, making them suitable for demanding applications. We offer a wide range of finishes since aluminum extrusions are compatible with different finish options. More importantly, aluminum extrusions allow us to conform to tighter tolerances that meet clients’ requirements.

Aluminum extrusion products often have improved strength and thus wear resistance. This is due to the material being produced under pressure to generate a homogeneous structure free of holes, chips, and pores.

Generally, aluminum extrusions can be in any imaginable shape, including basic rods, structural angles, bars, open seam square and rectangular tubing, pipes, corner extrusions, sliding t-track, I-beam, H-beams, J-channel, U-channel, hat-channel, C-channel, and Z-channel.

Aluminum extrusions are 100% recyclable, making them applicable in eco-friendly applications. Recycling and reusing aluminum extrusions also reduce manufacturing costs on the long-run.
