Aluminum Extrusion Bending
Prototype sheet metal parts start from hand sketches, detailed prints and CAD models that require 1st article inspection. We take it all and turn your idea into physical precision sheet metal parts. We understand how important it is to hit that deadline and we are committed to supporting your journey from design to parts. We are sheet meta prototyping experts who get it.
From rails for industrial equipment to automotive applications to bold artistic sculptures and architectural designs, there are plenty of reasons you may want to create curved aluminum extrusions. While the ductility of aluminum makes it well-suited to bending for these applications, you must address several challenges to ensure your final product meets quality specifications. This decision-making process ultimately comes down to managing stresses during bending. Bending aluminum extrusions imparts immense stress onto the workpiece. The extrusion can experience tension, compression, and torsion all at once. The results can range from minor thinning and swelling of profile segments to unacceptable defects like deformed profiles, buckling, or cracking. This article explains some of the best practices extrusion designers can apply to ensure good bendability in their products, along with six popular methods for bending aluminum extrusions.
Aluminum machining refers to daily necessities and industrial products obtained through a series of processing and packaging processes with aluminum alloy as the main raw material. First of all, before we understand the processing of aluminum products, let’s first understand the advantages and characteristics of aluminum.
