Aluminum profiles are manufactured by so-called extrusion. The process involves heating an aluminum extrusion ingot to a specific temperature, after which it is pressed with great force through a profile tool. The tool consists of one or two parts and is developed based on a profile drawing that shows the cross-section of the profile.
After extrusion, the profiles are cooled with air or water and stretched to be straight and to relieve stress in the material. The aluminum profiles are cut to suitable lengths (often 6 meters) and hardened in an oven to increase their strength.
Extrusion provides unique construction and design possibilities in a large number of application areas.
Many products can advantageously be constructed on the basis of standard profiles depending on design and complexity. Examples of the assortment of standard profiles:
- Flat bars
- Rectangular tubes
- Round tubes
