Aluminum Bar Stock
Aluminum bars are solid parts made by extrusion, rolling and coiling, and are widely used in industry. So, what is the extrusion process of aluminum bar stock?
What is Extruded Aluminum Bar Stock?
First, the extrusion process of the aluminum bar stock is almost identical. The heated aluminum billet is pushed through a mold of the desired shape, or cross-sectional profile, to form a strip of extruded aluminum bar stock. This process is called the aluminum bar stock extrusion process.
Although this process seems simple, the resulting aluminum extrusion bar shapes can range from simple squares and circles to very complex shapes such as T, X, and Z.
What are the Benefits of Aluminum Bar Extrusion?
When we say aluminum bar stock, we don't just mean squares and rectangles. Aluminum bar is widely used in industry, including aluminum round bar, aluminum hexagon bar, aluminum tube, aluminum flat bar and so on. With such a wide range of shapes and sizes, extruded aluminum shapes can help simplify the manufacturing process. Customers can spend less initial material cost, which reduces machining time and reduces mold wear. Because aluminum bar stock can reduce the overall manufacturing cost of industrial products, the extrusion shape is the preferred material.
