Introduction of Aluminium Extrusion

Introduction of Aluminium Extrusion

Aluminium extrusion process is the plastic deformation process of the block. Preheat the aluminum billet to a specified temperature that is still comfortably below the melting point of the material to promote plastic flow of the material. The heated blank is then pressed through a mold, which is designed to shape the blank and form a corresponding profile cross section.

Aluminum is a commonly used designated material for extrusion and shape contours. Because aluminum has mechanical properties, it is very suitable for forming and forming metals from billets. The high ductility of aluminum means that the metal can be easily formed into various cross-sections without spending a lot of energy during processing or forming, and the melting point of aluminum is usually about half that of ordinary steel. Aluminum also has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it an excellent choice for industrial applications.

As a by-product of the extrusion process, small, almost invisible lines sometimes appear on the profile surface. In order to improve the surface finish of the profile section, some minor surface treatment operations can be performed. Machining operations can be specified to improve the surface geometry by reducing the overall surface roughness of the extrusion profile to improve the part profile.

Create complex aluminum extrusion types with different thicknesses. These profiles can have various complex void spaces, which are necessary for end-use applications. In order to facilitate various automation applications and meet any performance and weight requirements, a variety of internal voids can be used.

Aluminium extrusion are most commonly used in industrial automation applications. They are both rugged and lightweight, so they can be easily handled manually and can be built into various configurations according to the requirements of the automation structure. In addition to traditional automation applications, structural grade aluminum profiles are even designated as part of weight reduction. In this sense, they are increasingly used as a framework for other end-use consumer products, such as automotive and LEED construction projects.

Finally, extruded aluminum profiles are versatile and very suitable for building automation applications. Aluminum is an excellent structural material and very suitable for profile extrusion.
