WebinarsAluminum 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:
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 has added a series of webinars aimed at designers, engineers and others who wish to delve deeper into the ins and outs of aluminum extrusion. The new series, AEC Aluminum Extrusion Tech, is intended to inform and educate those with some knowledge of aluminum extrusions but who are interested in a more technical focus. Watch for this logo identifying these advanced-level webinars.
Automotive Aluminum: Specifying & Achieving Desired Extrusion Performance
AEC On-demand Webinars
This webinar 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.
This webinar covers the requirements it takes to achieve optimum properties for structural extrusions. Higher strength 6xxx alloys, such as 6005, 6061 and 6082 will be covered; however, the content will be broadly applicable for most 6000-series alloys. Technical issues for assuring properties and maintaining profile geometry for structural applications will be discussed.
