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