Extrusion Process

Aluminium extrusion is a mechanical process in which aluminium billets are converted into profiles of a set cross-section. The raw material is heated to the required temperature for the production process, and then a high-power press is pressed through a matrix of hardened steel with a disbanded cavity corresponding to the shape of the profile you want to get. This process is followed by stretching, cutting and hardening operations necessary to obtain the mechanical properties of the final product.

The main stages of the aluminium extrusion process:
- aluminium billets are heated to the required temperature for the production process;
- billets are transported to a hollow cylinder called a container, at the end of which a matrix is inserted;
- the billet, under the influence of the force of the piston, moves through the matrix cavity, disbanding the profile;
- the resulting profile is cut to the length desired by the customer and transported to the ageing furnace. At controlled temperature, the required profile hardness is achieved;
- subsequently, profiles are packed in solid, transportable packaging.

Aluminium Profiles

Modern architectural solutions, automotive industry, energy and many other areas of activity are inconceivable without aluminium profiles and system solutions. This is due to many of the extremely attractive properties of aluminium as a structural raw material:
- easy to recycle and does not pollute nature at all;
- attractive mechanical properties;
- available in a wide variety of cross-sections and extremely high accuracy;
- easy to process: using this raw material in production does not require complex equipment and machine tools.

We offer a wide range of products:
- profiles of standard cross-sections (which do not require an initial investment by the client in the manufacture of the tool);
- individual cross-sectional profiles (a special production tool (matrix) is ordered according to the approved cross-section of the customer);
- system aluminium profiles (profile solutions from ALUFLAM proprietary systems (windows, doors, facades)).
