Overview of the Extrusion Process
Perhaps you have a concept for a component and are looking for guidance on how best to execute it in an aluminum extrusion, or with an extrusion-based assembly.
Finally there is a section on thermal management if you need to separate hot and cold zones. The material presented represents the combined experience of AEC member companies. Yet there is no substitute for sitting down with an extrusion professional and reviewing your specific needs. Use Find an Extruder to find an extruder near you.
Be sure to download the Aluminum Extrusion Manual for offline reference of aluminum extrusion design tips, alloys, tolerances, dies and more. When you're ready to move forward with a new extruded component, contact an AEC member extruder for assistance with specific details.
