Aluminum Extrusion Process

The aluminium extrusion process shapes aluminum by heating and forcing through a shaped opening in a die. When extruded, the hot aluminium profiles will be quenched, cooled, straightened, and cut. This process enhances the properties of aluminum alloy and results in extruded aluminium profiles in a final product.

RELATED REFERENCE: What is aluminum extrusion?

How To Control The Tolerance of Aluminum Extrusion Profiles?

When the engineer sends us the cross-sectional drawing, hoping that we can produce the aluminium profiles accurately meet all the dimensions in the drawings. From the design to the final aluminum extrusion profile product, there are many processes, including die production, extrusion, machining, and even aluminium processing and surface treatment. Changes in size and mechanical characteristics are inherent in the manufacturing and processing of aluminium extrusion profile products, which is something that users need to understand. Therefore, the National Standards of aluminum extrusion profile products emphasize the reasonable tolerance range of each size during production. Our aluminium profiles for architectural use are produced and inspected in accordance with GB/T5237, and the aluminium profiles for industrial use are produced in accordance with GB/T6892, and our extruded aluminium bars are produced in accordance with GB/T3191. These National Standards all specify its request on tolerance.

quality test-fonnov aluminium

It is impossible to manufacture extruded aluminium that is exactly the same size as the drawings. It is the key to satisfy the final application and assembly of the product. Tolerance is something that must be confirmed with users before aluminum extrusion production. The size range required by the user may not be workable in actual extrusion manufacturing, but we have always tried our best to work with the user to check the drawings to ensure that the tolerance is workable for both real usage and actual manufacturing capacity.

Alloy Options For Aluminum Extrusion Profiles

Aluminum alloy is a necessary factor that should consider for extrusion production. General engineering industries are broad, nearly including all industries around us. Bicycle, television, car, truck, bus, train, airplane, ship, sports equipment, shelf, facilities, as well as manufacturing parts that we even can not name. Most aluminum extrusion profiles request only mill finish or clear anodizing surface for basic corrosion resistance. They emphasize the mechanical properties of aluminum material that can meet the application requests.

aluminium alloy 6063 extrusion fonnov

Different aluminum alloy and temper is with different mechanical properties. There are 6060, 6063, 6061, 6082, 2A12, 2024, 5052, 7075,etc. Different aluminum alloys used in the aluminum extrusion are consist of various chemical components. Alloy selection plays an essential role in your aluminum extrusion profile project. Choosing the suitable alloy is necessary because it affects many of the aluminum’s characteristics. Like formability, tensile strength, surface treatment options, machinability, and electric conductivity. And different aluminum alloys and heat treatments have separate mechanical properties on the aluminum extrusion profile. A suitable aluminum material, combined with a proper temper, will give your product the specified features. Available alloys and tempers are listed below.

We produce and test this aluminum extrusion profile under NATIONAL STANDARD GB/T 6892-2015.

Finishing Options For Aluminum Extrusion Profiles

Many kinds of aluminum finishes can be chosen in Fonnov Aluminium.

Mill finish is the natural appearance of aluminum. It is without any surface treatment after the aluminum extrusion process. Architecture and building construction is the primary consumption market of extruded aluminum profiles, like windows and doors and facade curtain walls. These aluminum extrusions generally are with aluminum alloy 6063 and 6060 but are mostly emphasized on surface finishing for decoration. If the aluminum extrusion profile is not surface-treated, it is unattractive and easily corrupted in the humid air. This makes it difficult to meet high decorative and weather resistance requirements in building materials. FONNOV ALUMINUM classifies the surface finishing into anodizing, powder coating, wood grain finish, PVDF coating, and wet painting for different appearances, colors, and weather resistance.

←Woodgrain Aluminum Finish is based on electrostatic powder coating spraying. The wood grain pattern on the transfer paper or transfer film is quickly transferred and penetrated the sprayed coating by the sublimation process on aluminum extrusion profiles. This finish has a clear and natural feeling of timber.

→PVDF Aluminum Finish is a super durable finish. This Fluorocarbon spraying process mostly uses multi-layer spraying to fully take advantage of the durability and weather resistance of Kynar 500 metallic paint. Strict quality control is required from the pre-treatment process, spraying the painting process to the curing process to ensure a qualified aluminum profile.

←Anodized Aluminum Finish is an electrochemical process that creates a durable anodic oxide surface on aluminum profiles. In the anodizing process, the pretreated extruded aluminum parts are immersed in an acid electrolyte bath and an electrical current is passed through the solution. This process can create an aluminum oxide layer. Dyes can subsequently be applied, with the final step sealing.

→Powder Coated Aluminum Finish is a dry finishing process. A electrostatic spraying machine is used to spray powder coating on the surface of the aluminum profiles. Under the action of static electricity, the powder will be uniformly adsorbed on the surface of the aluminum profile to form a powder coating. The bake oven cures and turns into a final coating with different appearances.

Machining for 7075 aluminum extrusion2024-02-20T08:08:40+00:00

The 7075 aluminum extrusions have many good qualities, including remarkable strength. However, the material can present notable challenges during machining or fabrication. It has unique metallurgical characteristics that can make machining challenging. Compared to other aluminum alloys, 7075 aluminum is harder. You might need special cutting tools and techniques when cutting extrusions from this alloy. Heat buildup during machining is also a potential challenge, a reason why we recommend the use of cooling and lubrication solutions. When done properly, machining 7075 aluminum extrusions can result in precise tolerances, a smooth surface, and excellent products.

Are there extra finishings on the extrusions for enhanced durability?2024-02-20T08:05:10+00:00

Fonnov is committed to producing aluminum extrusions whose durability level is even higher than what is inherent to aluminum. Yes, there is the option of going with the natural mill finish, but it has its challenges. That’s why we incorporate a range of surface treatments, especially for items meant for outdoor use. Anodizing is one of the most popular surface treatments at our company. This method equips the aluminum extrusions with an oxide layer. Anodized extrusions have improved abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance. We also offer powder coating for extra protection against chemical damage and UV issues. You can talk to us for a careful selection of the most appropriate surface finish for aluminum extrusion profiles.

Does the choice of aluminum extrusion shapes matter?2024-02-20T08:03:19+00:00

Yes, you need to consider a few points when choosing an aluminum extrusion shape by Fonnov Aluminum. That’s because the shape or profile of the extrusion can affect the aesthetics, performance, and suitability of the product. If you are looking for a stronger aluminum extrusion, we would recommend a channel or I-beam design. These are designed to provide structural support or carry more weight. If you are considering functionality, the shape of the aluminum extrusions is critical. Most modular assemblies go with T-slotted extrusions for ease of integration. These designs are common in workstations and framing projects. Similarly, fin shapes that are synonymous with heat sinks are prominent in electronic products for heat dissipation.

How do aluminum extrusions compare to alternative materials?2024-02-20T08:00:17+00:00

Aluminum extrusion profiles are better than alternative materials in several ways. If you are to compare the extrusions to steel, one notable advantage would be the weight difference. Steel is approximately three times heavier than aluminum alloys. The weight element has effects on fuel consumption and transportation costs. Aluminum alloys may be lightweight, but they have a high strength-to-weight ratio. In that aspect, this material is better than steel, plastic, and other materials. That explains why Fonnov extrusions such as 6063 and 6061 build robust structures, despite their lightweight nature. On design flexibility, aluminum extrusions are among the most preferred materials. With their high customization capability level, these extrusions are applicable in a wide range of industries, including consumer electronics and architectural projects. Other areas where aluminum alloy extrusions score highly are thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance.

We take our extrusion profiles through a series of steps for quality assurance. Our goal is to ensure that the products meet the requirements for mechanical properties, accuracy, and many other requirements. There are tests at every stage of the production process, so nothing is left to chance.

Do these aluminum extrusion profiles have any limitations?2024-02-20T07:42:36+00:00

While our aluminum extrusions have so many positives and suit a wide range of applications, there could be limitations. There are applications where strength is a key factor and the strength of aluminum extrusions may not be adequate. Since the extrusions may not be as strong as steel in such instances, reinforcement or bigger profiles may be required. Also, some profiles are simply too complex and have extremely tight tolerances. It becomes too difficult to extrude them or the process is too expensive. As a customer, the increased lead times and the higher initial cost for customized tooling may be worth considering. Fortunately, our experienced team of engineers is usually able to strike a balance of all such considerations to deliver a cost-effective and optimum aluminum extrusion profile design.

Are the mechanical properties of the aluminum extrusion profiles altered?2024-02-20T07:40:36+00:00
