    The 6000 alloys boast of moderately high strength and resistance to corrosion. They are heat treatable and readily welded. Their extrudability is one of the unique features that make them the first choice for structural and architectural projects where strength is of utmost importance. Among the alloys in the 6000 series, the heat-treatable aluminum-magnesium-silicon 6063 allow is highly sought-after and one of the most widely used. As a matter of fact, 6063 aluminum is the choicest alloy for the members

    A heat sink is one of the most important constituents of any mechanical system that produces heat during operation. The quality and efficiency of a heat sink installation directly impact the overall functionality of machines or motors. Aluminum heat sinks with extrusions are particularly preferred by many engineering, computing, electrical and cooling industry manufacturers. Compared to copper and several other materials, aluminum alloy offers significant heat energy dissipation benefits. Aluminum extruded heat sinks are also one of the most popular

    Extrusion is considered to be among the most efficacious procedures to shape and mold metal and the most used metal in this process is aluminum. We obtain high-quality extruded aluminum by forcing hot raw aluminum through a steel profile for creating a definite shape. Once the extruded material comes out in a single piece, it can be cut as per your requirements. However, the extrusion process is not easy and understanding the aspects that can influence your success in aluminum
