Extrusion Design

Extrusion Design Basics

The aluminum extrusions pictured below have just come from the press, and are starting their transformation from extruded lineals into finished components ready to be assembled into an end product.

In this section, you'll find an introduction to the extrusion process, information on dies & tooling, alloys & tempers, tolerances, the benefits that extruded components offer, key considerations when designing with extrusions, comparisons with alternative materials and an overview of various fabrication and finishing processes. You'll also find information about the variety of resource materials that AEC has available for the academic community.
