Hard alloy aluminum extrusions can also withstand harsh weather conditions and are the best solution for parts used in military-grade equipment and vehicles that commonly operate in intense environments.
High in Strength-to-Weight Material
The unique combination of low weight and high strength makes aluminum extrusion profiles beneficial in the following applications, where load carrying is a primary concern for key performance:
- Truck Trailer
Using aluminum in military vehicles lightens the load, allowing for cost-effective and efficient movement of troops.
Weight reduction is a growing concern in areas such as transportation, and using lighter parts makes shipping less costly. Aluminum is an attractive material for applications involving moving parts since it is easier to handle and weighs considerably less than other commonly used materials.
Aluminum is approximately 1/3 the weight of brass, copper, steel, and iron and is 2 ½ times less dense than steel. Despite aluminum’s strength, it is incredibly lightweight, making aluminum extrusions the perfect solution for various industries and applications.
The extrusion process allows manufacturers to control and concentrate the strength of aluminum to where it is needed most. Internal reinforcement and varying wall thicknesses can be modified to meet the specified needs of the aluminum extrusion profile design.
Aluminum becomes further strengthened in low temperatures, making it the perfect solution for cold-weather applications.
