As a downstream processing product of the aluminum industry chain, aluminum profiles are widely used in our daily life due to the improvement of technology, careful cost control, and the strengthening of awareness of the recyclable use of resources. So how much does aluminum alloy profiles cost per ton? Are they good? Let's take a closer look.
The price of aluminum alloy profiles usually includes "aluminum ingot price", "processing fee", "logistics cost", "packaging cost" and "mold cost sharing". The specific price needs to be consulted with the aluminum alloy profile supplier.
Aluminum ingot price (you can check the price of aluminum ingots on authoritative industry websites on a daily basis);
Handling fees. Colored aluminum profiles are treated with surface powder coating. Different powder coatings have different colors, and specific treatment methods such as extrusion, aging and oxidation are used. Processing fees vary depending on the production process and other related factors, ranging between 4,000-8,000;
Logistics depend on the volume, weight and shape of the goods. You can consult the logistics company for detailed information. The price varies depending on the route.
Packaging. Different packaging materials have different prices. For example, the weight of stretch film and paper packaging is different, and stretch film is relatively light.
Mold cost sharing. The size and structure of the material are different, and the size of the grinding tool and the production complexity are also different. This depends on quantity. The more the quantity, the lower the mold cost. In general, for orders with huge quantities, the full mold cost can be refunded through negotiation.
Aluminum alloy profile can be divided into five categories according to their uses: building aluminum alloy profile, radiator aluminum alloy profile, industrial aluminum profile, rail vehicle structure aluminum alloy profile, and decorative aluminum alloy profile.
Usually, Industrial Aluminum Profile is used for industrial production and manufacturing, such as the skeleton of automation machinery and cover plates. Each company also customizes the mold according to its own requirements for mechanical equipment, such as conveyor belts, elevators, dispensers, testing equipment, shelves, etc. The electronic and mechanical professions and clean rooms are mostly used. The rail vehicle structure aluminum alloy profiles are mainly used for the manufacture of rail vehicle bodies. The decorative aluminum profiles can be made into aluminum alloy picture frames and used for the decoration of various exhibitions and paintings.
Aluminum alloy profile has a smaller density compared to other commonly used metals, light weight, and a density of only 2.70 g/cm3, which is 1/3 of copper or iron, and requires no consideration of its load-bearing capacity during use.
Aluminum profiles have strong anti-corrosion properties as they use heat and cold processing methods during production.
Aluminum profiles have good ductility and can be made into lightweight alloys with many metal elements, making them of high-quality materials.
Compared to other metal materials, aluminum profiles have strong plasticity, good production efficiency,and good advantages for production and manufacturing.
Aluminum profiles have excellent casting properties and can be processed into different shapes of aluminum profiles.
They have good surface treatment performance and a beautiful bright color.
They have stable chemical properties, no magnetism, can be repeatedly recycled and used, and are a benign recyclable metal material.
They have a small elastic modulus and do not emit sparks during collision and friction, making them perform the best in the automotive process.
They have good thermal conductivity and conductivity, exhibiting excellent performance in short-distance power transmission.
Compared to other metal materials, aluminum alloy profiles have no metal pollution, no toxicity, and the surface oxidation layer has no volatile metals.
