Aluminum is one of the most commonly used materials in aerospace applications. In fact, it’s used in everything from aircraft fuselages to engine components. Aluminum is strong, lightweight, and corrosion-resistant, making it an ideal material for aerospace applications.
Here at New Source Corporation, we specialize in aluminum aerospace extrusions. We offer a wide range of products and services, including extruded aluminum profiles, machined parts, and more. We have been serving the aerospace industry since 1992 and are dedicated to providing quality products and excellent customer service.
What are aluminum aerospace extrusions, and what are they used for?
Aluminum aerospace extrusions are aluminum alloys that have been formed into specific shapes using a process called extrusion. Aluminum alloys are well suited for this process because they can be easily heated and formed into the desired shape.
Aluminum extrusions are used in various applications, including aircraft construction, window and door frames, and automotive parts. Aluminum extrusions are also relatively easy to work with and can be joined together using various methods, such as welding or riveting.
