The aluminum tube profiles are widely used in a lot of area, especially the construction industry. Aluminum tubes’ unique properties make it an ideal choice for design engineers.
The shape, color, and physical properties of the aluminum tube profiles are almost unlimited, and can basically meet any requirements. Compared with other metals, aluminum's flexibility and many other properties make it a better choice than other materials.
The recommended reasons for aluminum tube profiles will contain the following:
Lightweight of aluminum tube profiles
Flexible appearance of aluminum tube profiles
Unique material characteristics of aluminum tube profiles
Easy colored of aluminum tube profiles
Low price for extrusion dies of aluminum tube profiles
Aluminum tube profiles cost lower than stainless steel
Many people know that aluminum is light, but did you know that it weighs only about one third as much as stainless steel? The aluminum tube profiles are very popular in the field of aerospace and automobile. In those area, less weight means less cost.
Aluminum tube profiles offer exceptional design flexibility. You can extrude very complex contours. This allows the engineer to place the material where he or she needs it for optimal strength while minimizing manufacturing costs. Compared with the flexible characteristics of aluminum tube profiles, other materials obviously do not meet such requirements, and the cost will greatly increase.
Once the aluminum tubing is extruded, it can be reprocessed in a variety of ways to produce new properties. A bicycle wheel is a hoop made of aluminum extruded parts to form a rim of the bicycle wheel. Aluminum tube profiles undergo complex composite bending in the cooling system. Some of our disposable medical device customers opt for tempering, which allows the surgeon to easily bend the extrusion during the procedure.
The extruded aluminum tube profiles can be anodized to enhance its appearance, improve wear resistance, and prolong extrusion life. The coating is naturally transparent and can be mixed with colorful organic dyes. Aluminum machining parts can also be treated with a chemical conversion film to minimize oxidation. Chemical film coatings are specified in many aerospace applications. Anodic oxidation and chemical film coatings are also biocompatible when used in disposable medical devices.
Cost is a very important point in business. Aluminum tube profiles extrusion dies are very cheap compared to other types of tools. Aluminum tube profiles extrusion dies can reduce the cost by half or more compared with other dies .
Extruded aluminum tubes can be as much as 70 percent cheaper than stainless steel tubes. In addition, there are many examples of machined parts that have been redesigned using extruded parts, with costs reduced by 30-40%.
