    Many people, when asked what aluminum is used for, will say that it is a material used in beverage cans. However, the number of things made from aluminum and the wide variety of products derived from this metal are almost endless. Aluminum is one of the most useful and widely used metals on earth. Here are just a few things that can be made from aluminum, House siding, Window frames, Car bodies, Aircraft fuselages and wings, and Stainless steel Why

    The aluminum extrusion industry has seen a lot of changes over the past few years. There are more and more companies using aluminum, including those who never used it before, all because there is a demand for this type of product. Aluminum extrusions can be produced in many ways – from cutting to bending – and each process will give you a slightly different type of result. There are also many finishes available that will enhance the way your work

    The aluminium extrusion process is the heating of aluminium and applying enough force to it using a hydraulic ram placed within a shaped opening in the die. Once the extrusion is done, the output aluminium must be cooled, straightened, quenched, and then cut. Extrusion allows the metal to emerge as a longer and lengthier piece without losing its properties. Are you still not clear about the extrusion process? Well, let’s take an example from everyday life.  You certainly brush your

    Aluminum is a high utility material. Its usage can be traced down to different fields and areas of manufacturing. Aluminum is an excellent choice for manufacturing heatsinks. Aluminum has excellent thermal conductivity and hence, often considered a common option for manufacturing heatsinks. Apart from this, it is also used in the manufacturing of different applications like CPUs, refrigerators, lasers, and different medical devices. Heatsinks are essentially required for heat dissipation purposes in many industries. Some of the common areas where

    Gone are the days when one would abide only by the standard shapes and limits pertained to traditional materials. Designers are rising to the concept of customization as they work with aluminum extrusions. In simple words, extrusion is the process of shaping a certain material (aluminum in this case) in the way of forcing it to go through a shaped opening. The extruded material, which is the end product, comes out as an elongated piece having the same profile to

    Extruded aluminum heat sinks find use across a wide variety of applications today. They are vital components for electronic devices, power systems and a wide variety of cooling systems. The design of aluminum heat sinks is an integral factor that influences the performance they can offer. Many manufacturers and industrial service providers across the globe rely on heat sink manufacturers to create precise custom designs for their specific applications. The shape, size and fin density of aluminum heat sinks determine

    Heatsinks play a vital role in mechanical and electronic devices. Acting as passive heat exchangers, they transmit heat to a fluid medium (mainly air) from hot components. They are often made through the aluminum extrusion procedure, after that high-quality aluminum heatsinks are mostly work completed with anodized finish. This is done because anodization comes with a lot of advantages. But, first it is time to discuss what anodization is and how it works. What is Anodization Procedure? Anodization is an

    Aluminum is the second most common metal on Earth, which is fortunate since it is one of the most useful materials for a range of industries and sectors. The reason for aluminum’s popularity is its characteristics. It is a highly malleable, ductile metal that is both dense and lightweight. Furthermore, it is a natural conductor of electricity, making it an ideal choice for power lines and other uses in the electronics sector. Due to the versatility that the metal offers
