About Aluminium Extrusions
Aluminium extrusions are hollow in shape and can be used for the construction of home appliances, automobiles, constructing supporting frames for buildings and much more. They are also used in the aerospace industry for the construction of space crafts, space stations and satellites. Hydro extrusions are a standard alloy of custom aluminium extrusions which are custom designed. They can be designed in different shapes, sizes, alloys and tempers which make them suitable for various applications. Engineers use a solid cylindrical block or billet of aluminium which is heated, softened and forced through a steel dye to produce a lightweight and strong corrosion resistant component which is shaped like the opening of a die. Two methods of extruding aluminium are direct extrusion and indirect extrusion. Engineers use the direct extrusion method as the most preferred method as it is a flexible method. In this method, the aluminium billet is placed in the stationary container as the hydraulic ram moves through to push the metal through an opening. In this manner, the aluminium flows in the same direction as the ram flows. Engineers use the indirect extrusion method by placing aluminium billets in place and moving the container during the process of extrusion. Here the pressure of the ram forces the soft metal to flow through the die opening in the opposite direction of the ram. This method is known as backwards extrusion. During the process of extrusion, the temperature of aluminium must be controlled carefully as a change in temperature could cause the extrusion to become deformed. High temperature can result in a decrease in tensile strength.
Aluminium extrusion designers use the hydro extrusion method to design different shapes, sizes, alloys and tempers. They perform all types of extrusion methods right from standard extrusion to custom extrusion. They study the client's requirement and design the right type of aluminium extrusion which suits their need. Aluminium extrusion designers provide different services such as extrusion finishing service, polishing service, finishing, wet paint finish, powder coating finish and aluminium anodizing. They also offer aluminium fabrication services such as CNC milling in aluminium extrusion, precision metre cutting and much more. Designers fabricate aluminium extrusions by the method of punching, drilling, tapping, notching and bending. Aluminium extrusion suppliers precision cutting and meter cut extrusions in different ways to get the right shape. Some popular cutting methods include precision cutting, mitre cutting, saw cutting and laser cutting.
Aluminium extrusions come in different types which are used in various applications. The T5 aluminium alloy is a standard cross-sectional shaped extrusion which is surface treated with a clear coating which offers a baked finish. It is a lightweight extrusion which is very economical and comes with a clear anodized aluminium finish. The GFS aluminium extrusion is a thick type of extrusion which offers high rigidity as compared to other products. It is best suited for use in supporting frames, industrial applications and much more. Since aluminium is corrosion resistant aluminium extrusions can be used in chemical processing industries and industrial power plants. Some popular locations to find aluminium extrusion suppliers in the UAE are the Old industrial area, New industrial area, Al Aweer, Al Quoz industrial area 3, new Industrial area 7, Industrial area 17 and Al Hamidiya.
