Aluminium Profiles/Aluminium Extrusions

What is Aluminium Profile?

Aluminium profile also named aluminium extrusion. Extrusion is the process of pushing a heated aluminium billet through a die of the desired cross-section. The formed profile is lightweight, strong and corrosion-resistant, and the shapes just like the opening of the die. Generally, the die is made of indurative steel or cemented carbide. There are two kinds of conventional methods of extruding aluminium, direct extrusion (same as forwarding extrusion) and indirect extrusion (same as backward extrusion). And there are various ways of categorizing aluminium profile. According to the aluminium material, the aluminium profile can be classified as 1100 aluminium profile, 6061 aluminium profile, 6063 aluminium profile. According to different applications, it can be classified as an architectural aluminium profile, industrial aluminium profile, etc.

Benefits of Aluminium Profiles  

Industrial aluminium profiles are profiles of aluminium shaped by the process of forcing it to flow through a shaped opening in a predesigned die. The extruded material emerges as an elongated piece with the same profile as the die opening. It is widely used in many industrial areas, it comes with the following benefits:

  • Easy machining and fabrication
  • Long life
  • Excellent corrosion resistance
  • Wide range of geometries possible
  • Raw material cost is lower
  • Eternal recyclable
  • Good appearance, can be surface treated with different colors
  • Good mechanical properties

How to choose the right alloy for extruded aluminium profiles?  

CHAL makes all the standard and custom aluminium alloys for extrusions. We can provide you with any tempers, shapes and sizes you wanted, by both direct extrusion and indirect extrusion. Both seamless and structure extrusions are available. If your demanded quantity exceeds 40 tons, we also have the ability to create a tailored alloy for you. Bellow table shows you typical alloy for aluminium extrusions.

Design a New Die for Your Aluminium Profile

A die also called a tool or mould. It is made of super-hard tool steels, and the hardness ensures it suitable for pressing aluminium material through inter opening. The process of pushing aluminium billet through a steel die to make the final aluminium profile is called extrusion. It determines the shapes of the profile, which is why different tools are used for the production of different aluminium profiles. For example, when we are making solid profiles, we choose a solid die and choose the built-up tool for making the hollow section profile. For making a large-sized aluminium extrusion, we design a die with one opening, and if making a smaller profile, we will create the die with multi chambers. You may find the die is the core part used in the manufacturing of aluminium extrusion.
