Our in-house 1000 tonne indirect extrusion press (Press 1) specialises in producing tight tolerance, rapid turnaround and more complicated profiles. Our new 1800 ust short stroke direct press (Press 2) commissioned in January 2012 produces profiles up to 230mm circumscribing circle with rapid order turnaround.
Alloys AA6060 & 6351 are our standard alloys.
Length Our standard length range is 2000-6500mm. We are able to offer cut-to-length service from 10mm and extra long lengths to maximum of 14000mm upon enquiry.
Shapes Complex hollows & solids; thinner wall thickness to 0.6mm; tighter tolerances to +/- 0.15mm (on OD).
Finishing Anodising, brightening, powder coating & bead blasting to your specific requirements.
|Typical (not for design)|
|6060 T5||220||180||12||70||85% of all extrusion. Good bending. Good anodising. Poor machining.|
|6063 T5||220||180||12||-||Slightly stronger than 6060. Fair machining. Good anodising.|
|6063 T6||240||215||12||-||Harder, improved machining. Good anodising. Poor bending.|
|6351 T6||Excellent strength, good machining, fair anodising.|
