How are aluminium profiles actually manufactured?

 

The process of extruding an aluminium profile is an art in itself. To put it simply, the hot aluminium, in the form of a round extrusion billet, is pushed through a steel disc with cut-outs of the desired cross-section. This explanation also works well for an open profile. In the case of an aluminium profile with hollow chambers, several tool components are necessary. The material is directed around cores and flows into a hollow-chamber profile within the tool. This shows the knowledge that is necessary for the production of aluminium profiles. About 1,000 parameters, such as the temperature of the tool, speed of extrusion and the cooling, influence the desired result. The staff at the presses have many years of experience.
