For designers and engineers, the possibilities are endless when designing with aluminum extrusions. Aluminum profiles can provide the solution to many design challenges. With aluminum extrusions, you don't have to compromise your design to accommodate standard shapes, you can design exactly the shape you need and let the production process accommodate itself to your specific design.
Aluminum profiles have many advantages, including:
...making aluminum extrusion the material and process of choice.
Careful design is the way to gain maximum benefit from the many variable characteristics of aluminum alloys and from the flexibility of the extrusion process. The Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition is a great place to show off your talent and innovation in design...and it offers the possibility of winning money and recognition for your unique design!
