Custom Aluminum Extrusions Services
Do you want to get aluminum extrusions with custom sizes and length? Ruitai is such an extrusion company. Based in Shenzhen, China, we offer you custom aluminum and plastic extrusion production services.
Custom Plastic Extrusions
There is a wide range of plastics available for your plastic extrusion project: PP, HDPE, LDPE, PMMA, ABS, etc. Our engineering team will choose the best plastic for your unique project if you need any guidance.
Custom Aluminum Extrusions
We mainly apply aluminum to form high-precision extrusions with a specific cross-section. Aluminum 6061 and aluminum 6063 are two we usually use in extrusion projects.
It’s not easy to find a manufacturing partner to produce low-volume aluminum extrusions. But, Ruitai offers low-volume aluminum extrusions.
We also get advanced facilities to proceed high-volume aluminum extrusions projects. The size of extrusions ranges from 175 square millimeters to 275×60.
5 Common Aluminum Extrusion Applications
Aluminum is one of the most commonly used metals in the manufacturing field. It has an array of excellent engineering properties: anti-corrosion, lightweight, high-strength, heat resistance, etc. After extruding the aluminum material, it forms high-performance extrusions with the desired cross-sections. There are five common aluminum extrusion applications: transportation, electrical system, aerospace, medical, and architectural.
1/ Transportation and auto
Aluminum extrusion has a wide application in transportation and automotive industries because of its lightweight and corrosion resistance: load restraint rails, handrail systems, frame components, engine blocks, transmission, chassis, etc.
2/ Electrical System
You may have noticed the applications of aluminum extrusions in electrical systems: the electrical panel, the heat sink for LED lights, the support structure of the solar panel, etc. That’s because aluminum extrusions are of excellent electrical conductivity.
3/ Building and Construction
Aluminum extrusions are widely used in the building and construction industry due to their strength, durability, and light weight. They are used for window frames, door frames, curtain walls, roofing and siding, and structural components.
4/ Aerospace Industry
Aluminum extrusions are also used in the aerospace industry due to their strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and thermal conductivity. They are used for aircraft frames, wing spars, and other structural components.
5/ Industrial and Manufacturing Applications
Aluminum extrusions are used in a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications, such as conveyor systems, machine frames, and enclosures. They are also used for consumer goods such as furniture, sporting equipment, and household appliances.
1. What Is Extrusion Aluminum?
Extrusion aluminum is a popular technique that makes the aluminum alloy with the desired section. It makes a piece of round or square billet go through a die, which has less cross-sectional area than the original billet. Typically, there are two ways to squeeze the aluminum alloy: cold and hot. We can make the extrusion aluminum parts according to the types. And it has a broad application in building/medical/electronics/electrical/transportation/ships, and so on.

2. What Are the Benefits of Using Extrusion Aluminum Parts?
Extrusion aluminum parts are pretty popular in various industries and there are some reasons for their popularity.
The recovery of extrusion aluminum parts can reach 100% without damage physically. It has lower oil consumption and carbon dioxide emission, which means that it is pretty environment-friendly.
- Wide applications
Aluminum has excellent properties including anti-corrosion, electrical conductivity, and ductile. Therefore, extrusion aluminum parts have a wide application in almost every industry.
- Can do more surface treatment
Extrusion aluminum parts can do many kinds of surface treatment including anodizing/polishing/powder coating/painting to protect the surface.
Typically, the manufacturer would do extrusion aluminum parts according to your unique design and detailed specifications. You can get any extrusion aluminum parts of any size and type. Ruitai also offers custom extrusion aluminum fabrication with cost-effective machining.
- Variable strength
Extrusion aluminum parts have various strengths and excellent strength-to-weight ratios to meet different applications. We can increase the strength of the place we want to increase the internal wall thickness. It makes the extrusion aluminum parts preferred parts in the aerospace industry.
