Why Choose Aluminum for Custom Extrusions?
With its corrosion resistance and high strength-to-weight ratio, aluminum extrusions are ideal for industrial and commercial structural or architectural applications. The ductility and flexibility of aluminum alloys offer design capabilities for a wide range of applications. Additionally, aluminum extrusions are durable and malleable, making them suitable for a vast array of manufacturing and engineering purposes.
Other advantages of aluminum extrusions include:
- High strength
- Thermally and electrically conductive
- Can be painted, polished, plated, or anodized
- Inexpensive tooling
- Eco-friendly and recyclable
We source aluminum extrusions from experienced manufacturers to get prototypes or high-volume production runs to market quickly with short lead times.

Design & Manufacturing Considerations for Custom Aluminum Extrusions
The aluminum extrusion process begins with the design of the extrusion profile and the identification of production parameters. Our supplier partners then create a custom aluminum extrusion die to reflect the desired profile. After passing through the aluminum extrusion die, the extrusions are cooled, shaped, and cut to reflect your order specifications. When the aluminum reaches the desired hardness level, extrusions can undergo additional finishing and processing or be sent on to you for use.
Considerations for your custom sourced and manufactured aluminum extrusions include:
- Material selection
- Weight to length ratio
- Intricacy of extrusion profile
- Number and size of die cavities
- Thickness of extrusion walls
