Aluminum extrusions offer an outstanding level of design flexibility, the ability to tailor component properties, cost-saving functionality and environmental benefits.
Yet extrusions' almost limitless design possibilities present unique challenges to the designer and engineer:
  • How should extrusions be designed for minimal system cost and optimal manufacturing?
  • What are the do's and don'ts in profile design?
  • How can shapes be optimized to meet structural requirements?
  • How can extrusion design impact the economics of extruded components vs. alternative materials?

The Aluminum Extruders Council offers webinars aimed at educating engineers and designers on the advantages of and practical considerations for designing with aluminum extrusions.

AEC recently became an "Approved Provider" of continuing education by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Join us for:

 

Leveraging Aluminum Extrusion's Attributes for Effective Building Solutions

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

2:00 p.m. EDT

Speakers: Shayne Seever, Sierra Aluminum and Lewie Smith, Jordan Aluminum  Extrusions

Hosted by AEC

 

This presentation will review the attributes of aluminum and the extrusion process, and then drill down into several characteristics of importance to today’s designer. It will also focus on the three key design variables – alloy selection, part geometry, and fabrication – for creating effective product solutions. Mini-cases will illustrate creative and cost-effective extrusion solutions in a number of markets, with an emphasis on building components.

Utilizing the Attributes of Aluminum Extrusion for Effective Automotive Solutions
Wednesday, October 5, 2016
2:00 p.m. EDT

Speaker: Mark Butterfield, Magnode Corp.

 

Hosted by SAE International

Presenting sponsor: Sapa Extrusion North America

 

Join AEC and presenting sponsor Sapa Extrusion North America for this customer webinar aimed at assisting automotive engineers to better utilize the unique attributes of aluminum and the extrusion process leading to new applications and creative solutions.

 

This webinar reviews the attributes of aluminum and the extrusion process and then drills down into several characteristics of importance to today’s auto designer. It also focuses on the three key design variables – alloy selection, part geometry, and fabrication. Mini-cases illustrate creative and cost-effective extrusion solutions.

This one-hour webinar is aimed at the designer/engineer with moderate familiarity with aluminum’s attributes, the extrusion process, and the basics of extrusion design. An audience Q&A follow the technical presentation.
