Design & manufacture of bespoke
aluminium extrusions and profiles
Because of the many qualities of aluminium as a metal, it is widely used across a number of different industries and disciplines. It’s malleability means it can be shaped into different profiles which can be cut to differ In conjunction with our international partners, we create bespoke aluminium profiles to meet our clients specified requirements, tailoring our service to match your needs from start to finish.
The process of extrusion is that which creates the specific shape of metal tube, or ‘profile’ required. This is made possible by the natural malleability of aluminium as an element. When the aluminium logs are heated they become easier to shape. With lubrication and a great deal of pressure the aluminium is driven through a die, which is cut to shape the metal.
This die dictates the final form of the tube or profile, and is specially created to each order, to ensure that the finished outcome is what is needed for the task at hand. Intricate details can be created using this method, although often the simpler ‘box section’ shape is all that’s required.
With the lubricant to prevent sticking and friction as the metal is forced through the die, the final piece emerges as a long consistent stretch of aluminium. The metal is then cooled, cut into the necessary measurements of length for the job and then artificially aged by a reheating process.
Because we can cut down the amount of time which is needed for the metal to reach its peak strength we can operate within very tight turnaround times, if our clients require it. Our bespoke service means that each item is made as specified by a customer, rather than being a one-size-fits-all solution off the shelf.
Whatever the detailed needs of the profile you’re looking to create, we work with our expert international partners to deliver the highest quality of final product, honed by our industry expertise.
