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.
