Compared with other processing methods, aluminum extrusion has several obvious advantages.
1. Less machining
Since aluminum alloy can be extruded into any complex section, as long as the design is reasonable, the extruded aluminum alloy profile can be easily assembled, so as to reduce the demand for machining. Some shapes can only be obtained by extrusion, which cannot be achieved by other processes.
2. Low cost of aluminum extrusion mould
Compared with other competitive materials such as rolling forming, casting, and forging, the cost of aluminum extrusion die is lower.
3. High structural efficiency
Aluminum alloy profile can achieve maximum structural efficiency. The aluminum profile can be used where the aluminum extrusion strength needs to be increased, and the aluminum profile can be removed where it is not needed.
Extruded aluminum alloy profiles are light in weight, high in strength, and durable. Due to the difference of properties between aluminum and other competing materials, the weight of the aluminum structure to achieve the same effect is only about half of that of other metal structures, and other metals are not easy to process.
5. The surface treatment effect is various, and the corrosion resistance is strong
By powder or electrophoretic coating, the designer can achieve any desired color. Of course, it also includes natural silver or color anodized film.
6. Less maintenance
Aluminum is a natural and durable metal, and the above surface treatment enhances its durability.
