Designing with Aluminum Extrusion

Do you wonder how to best design extrusions? AEC's forthcoming "Designing with Extrusion" webinars will answer your questions and make the effective use of extruded components easier.

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
Starting in June, AEC will offer a series of one-hour webinars that address these and other topics. Participants will receive an overview of the extrusion process, as well as information about the practicalities of alloy selection, profile design, and structural evaluation. The sustainability aspects of extrusion, as well as their comparative economics will also be presented.

The initial webinar: "It's about the SHAPE — Designing with Aluminum Extrusion" is presented in conjunction with Design News.
