Aluminum Tube Extrusion FAQ

Here are most of the questions related to aluminum tube extrusion. We hope you will find the answer to your question. If not, please leave us a message.

Aluminum Tube Bending Basics2024-02-13T07:42:40+00:00

Aluminum has the flexibility to be formed into any shape the manufacturer wants. Bending is a common practice in shaping aluminum. Although, it’s important to understand that some alloys bend better than others.

We produce multiple designs for our clients. That requires creativity and aluminum gives us the freedom to execute that. The design flexibility it offers is out of this world.

Bending is also done in multiple ways including:

  • Roller bending
  • Press
  • Draw
  • Stretch bending

We ensure that the alloys and tempers match the bending technique for a successful bend.

Matching Bending Techniques to Alloys/Tempers

You need a proper balance between alloys and bending techniques. Below are some of the factors we consider when bending aluminum tube.

  • Formability

Stronger aluminum metal alloys/tempers offer more resistance to bending. This is a result of the indirect proportionality between elongation and strength.

  • Thickness and bend radius

The bending process has a lasting impact on aluminum. The process strengthens aluminum and hardens it at the same time. Thicker Aluminum tube is likely to bend less but will regain strength. Before proceeding with bending, we must ascertain that the thickness can withstand the force without breakage.

Bending introduces extra force on the aluminum tube. Once the thickness of the tube accommodates the extra force, bending can be executed successfully. On the other hand, breakage will happen if the force is too much. For that reason, we ensure that the thickness has enough power to withstand the bend we want to achieve.

  • Elongation Rate

When bending aluminum tube, the outer diameter is stretched. There are limits to the elongation and we ensure that the limit is not exceeded when bending a tube. As a result, we make properly bent aluminum tubes.

What is Telescope Aluminum Tubing?2024-02-13T07:10:00+00:00

This is a special tubing practice involving one aluminum tube fitting perfectly inside another. When developing this, there must be elaborate clearance between aluminum tubes conjoining. This ensures that they have enough space to move as the user adjusts the telescope. There are various locks that allow you to lock the telescope after extension or vice versa.

It’s also key to note that the lock holds much or less depending on the finish. Anodized finish and powder coated finishing are the most common in telescope aluminum tubing. There’s also an optical element of a telescope. The optical dimensions must be well taken care of. The aluminum tubes ensure this is achieved thanks to its precision and strength.

Aluminum tubes are very common in telescope tubing. They come in different shapes including square, rectangular, and the common round shape. As manufacturer, we’re keen to select the right alloy and wall thickness. We understand that the latter quality is hugely affected by the inner and outer diameters. Therefore, we select the right dimensions for a perfect telescope tube.

Profiled and globe tubes are also designed in multiple sizes by the production team. This variety allows tubing telescopes of all sizes and shapes. Let’s consider some of the aluminum profiles you’ll come across.

What is Aluminum Tube Used for?2024-02-13T07:03:43+00:00

Aluminum tubes are used in many industries for different purpose and several roles. Their light weight and corrosion resistance gives the tubes multipurpose suitability. Below are some of the applications of aluminum tubes:

  1. Sporting tools

A bicycle is made of a frame, tires, and other complementary components. Aluminum tube is used to make the frame because of its strong yet light attributes.

  1. Marine industry

It is important to remember that aluminum is dominantly used for marine applications because of its great anti corrosion properties. Special structures like boat and ship have been continuously made using aluminum tubes.

  1. Automotive

The automotive industry is a major consumer of aluminum tubes. They’re used to make exhaust systems and heat exchangers. In other circumstances, they’re used to make suspension components.

  1. Other industrial applications

Aluminum tubes are used to make supporting frames for huge banners and others in the entertainment scene. Besides, the tubes are important in making electrical conduits, office furniture, structural components, aerospace, in the piping and plumbing industry.

Kinds of surface treatment methods for aluminum tube2024-02-13T06:59:23+00:00

Aluminum tubes are treated to improve their mechanical and other properties. That makes them better performers and more effective. Below are some of the most common finishing methods.

  • Painting

Paint adds a coat on top of aluminum that improves its appearance and protects the tube from corrosion. There has been a debate between whether wet painting or powder coating makes aluminum better. Well, the debate is likely to continue! The truth is that both wet painting and powder coating have specific circumstances under which they perform best.

  • Anodization

This is a very popular aluminum treatment method that entails oxidizing aluminum in a controlled environment. The other reason why this option is preferred is its colorization superiority.

Heat treatable alloys for aluminum tubes2024-02-13T06:34:51+00:00

These ones allow heat treatment as a method to improve their mechanical properties. They become stronger, harder, and with better tempers. Alloys 6xxx, 7xxx, 2xxx, and 8xxx are the most common heat treatable alloys.

Non-heat treatable alloys for aluminum tube2024-02-13T06:33:20+00:00

Non-heat treatable alloys are produced by mixing Aluminum alloys with other elements. The 1xxx, 3xxx, 4xxx, and 5xxx are the elements and alloys under discussion. After alloying, strain hardening is applied. It is important to note that strengthening alternatives are used on these series because these ones do not respond well to heat treatment.

As an alternative, cold working processes ae applied to improve the mechanical properties of these alloys. Although, these alloys including 1000, 3000, and 5000 are popular for their corrosion resistance and formability.

Aluminum Tubes and Alloy Series2024-02-13T06:30:24+00:00

Aluminum tubes come in different series and alloys. Each of these has special properties that make them suitable for particular applications. Aluminum can also be worked on to produce various shapes. These formations are gotten through mechanical processes like extrusion.

What is an extruded aluminum tube?2023-10-23T07:24:26+00:00

It is a hollow tube-shaped structure that is made from aluminum extrusion process. The cylindrical formation is applied in multiple industries.

Two of the most significant qualities of extruded aluminum tube are lightweight and corrosion resistance. Besides, aluminum tube is rated excellent in terms of its conductivity properties and has gained massive respect from manufacturers over time thanks to its durability.

Extruded aluminum tubes have 4 major parts defining them. Assuming cylindrical shapes, Aluminum tubes have an Inner Diameter (ID) and Outer Diameter (OD). The difference between these diameters is the wall thickness. The bigger the difference the thicker the wall thickness. Then, there’s the length of the tube. It determines how long the extruded aluminum tube will be.

The structure of an extruded aluminum tube has a big impact on a lot of things. For instance, formability, rate of elongation and ability to bend are significantly affected by ID/OD and the tube’s thickness.
