Bespoke Aluminium Extrusions
We specialise in bespoke extrusions that are designed for individual customers and projects.
From aerospace to large architecture, our capabilities ensure your project is produced to the highest standard and meets your design requirements.
Once you have submitted your project, our in house product designer can offer guidance on your extrusion project and improve tool life.
Standard Aluminium Extrusions
Thanks to our wide network of partners, we're able to source and stock an incredibly large library of standard profiles.
Additional operations such as in-house milling and cutting to length, then allow us to deliver a component that's ready to use, saving you time and effort.
Whether you would like to know more about Aluminium or Plastic extrusion, we've got you covered.
Our extrusion academy provides you with a quick and easy way to get up to speed on topics such as:
How do you work out how heavy an aluminium extrusion is? The magic number you need is the theoretical weight per meter. Usually expressed in kilos per metre (kg/m). Once you have this you can work out the weight of any length of the..
The process explained Extrusion is a technique where heated materials such as aluminium are forced through an opening to form a shaped profile. To produce an aluminium extrusion, an aluminium billet (a solid block/log of aluminium) is..
There are many reasons as to why you would want to join aluminium extrusions to each other, sometimes you will have to assemble two or more component parts to produce a more complex part. There are also a number of techniques you can use..
Specify Metal Thickness Avoid risking distortion or damage to your profile by keeping sufficient metal thickness around the profile. The thickness you specify will need to be heavy enough to meet your structural requirements. Shapes tend..
There are multiple reasons as to why you would need to apply aluminium surface treatments to your extrusions, all of which should be considered in the design phase of your profile. Understanding the end use of your profile and what..
Behind every product is a design, a design which shows how it needs to be made and how it’s going to look. When in the design phase, before the product can go through the manufacturing process, extruders must specify tolerances and apply..
Aluminium extrusion is an industrial forming process that is used to produce long profiles of a constant cross-section. This cross-section is shaped by the opening in a steel tool known as a die. A huge advantage of designing with..
Anodising aluminium is one of the most common finishes applied to aluminium extrusions. It increases corrosion resistance, becomes dirt repellent, increases the resistance to wear, creates a porous surface ideal for accepting dyes &..
It’s surprising how many people believe their design will work and put it through the manufacturing process only to find certain parts of the design have failed. That’s why 3D printed prototype/samples are an excellent place for you to..
For small volume buyers or those buying lightweight profiles, the minimum order quantities (MOQ) required by the press can represent a significant unexpected expense or wastage. The most common reason for a small order is as a first off..
Since its release in 1995 SOLIDWORKS has been one of the industry leading pieces of software for computer aided design (CAD). It was created to allow designers and engineers to bring their product designs to life with ease and precision...
It happens to us all, we’re given a project or something to think about and the first thing that comes to mind is… nothing, typical, you’re having a creativity block. So, what do you do when this happens? How do you get around having a..
