Extrusion is a process used to create objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile. A material is pushed through a die of the desired cross-section. The two main advantages of this process over other manufacturing processes are its ability to create very complex cross-sections, and to work materials that are brittle, because the material only encounters compressive and shear stresses.
Hord Rapidtools can provide prototype Aluminum and Plastic Extrusion with our long term partners.
The general material can be Aluminum 6063, and PVC, if there is especial requirement we also can provide 6061, PC, ABS, PMMA etc. But there will be extra set-up cost or MOQ.
For Aluminum surface finishing can be anodizing with different color or powder coating etc.
For plastic PC and PMMA, it can be clear.
The longest can be 6 meters, but in order to avoid problem of shipment by air, we are suggesting 2.7 meters or less.
It’s available to make post machining on extrusion part, the longest one we can machine is 1.5 meters.
