Need to know more about the aluminum extrusion process and designing with aluminum extrusions? Here are some tools to get you started:

The curriculum of most design and engineering courses include very little information about the versatility and advantages of aluminum extrusion. The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) is working toward bringing aluminum extrusion information into the classroom. If you would like an AEC member to come to your school to present educational information on aluminum extrusion to your class, contact AEC at
