Customer Webinar: 6 Best Practices for Aluminum Extrusion Design

This webinar, targeted to aluminum extrusion users, designers and engineers, covers how process variables can impact part performance. Six common issues aluminum extruders face when receiving a new profile design will be addressed. Best practices to save the designer time, disappointment and, ultimately, cost will be covered, including tips for improving aluminum extrusion designs and drawings.

For many design engineers and product designers, extruded aluminum is the material of choice for products across a wide range of industries. While aluminum extrusion provides nearly unlimited design possibilities, it also requires a number of design considerations. When designing for aluminum extrusions, practitioners will benefit from a solid understanding of the extrusion process, aluminum alloys, fabrication techniques, optimum tolerancing and proper profile design—knowledge that many designers do not possess or have time to acquire.


This webinar, hosted by Design News and developed by AEC and Vitex Extrusions, will provide a brief review of the aluminum extrusion process and how process variables can impact part performance and then address six common issues aluminum extruders face when receiving a new profile design. Best practices to save the designer time, disappointment and, ultimately, cost will be covered, including tips for improving aluminum extrusion designs and drawings.

Following this webinar, attendees will:

> Understand key extrusion process variables that affect part performance
> Better understand the design factors that affect the extrusion process
> Recognize how to adjust their design drawings to eliminate unnecessary back-and-forth with manufacturers
> Learn what and when to communicate with extruders to improve the product development process... and the ultimate end result.
