Aluminum Extrusion Tolerances
How straight is straight enough? How flat is flat enough? Aluminum extrusions, and extrusion-based components, can be produced to very precise tolerances, as well as to accepted "industry standard" dimensional tolerances.
More complex components may call for geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, in order to specify the shape-related intricacies of the design.
New Aluminum Association VIDEOS on MEASURING TOLERANCES!
Check out the latest 5-video series from the Aluminum Association on how to accurately measure aluminum extrusion tolerances to industry standards; each video is geared to a specific type of extrusion profile or a particular tolerance parameter.
