The Different Types of Aluminum Extrusion Dies

An extrusion die can be made to form nearly any shape you design. A die is a round piece of steel plate with one or more openings through which a softened metal is pressed. The die opening is shaped to form the finished product, by forcing the alloy through the die opening.

Though broadly grouped as solid dies (producing solid shapes) and hollow dies (producing hollow or semi-hollow shapes), there are actually a number of combinations in which solid, semi-hollow and/or hollow shapes may be combined to make single die that can be used to form more than one product per pressing.

A solid die will have one or more cut openings for extrusion. Each aperture will result in a separate, solid, extrusion from the die. It should be noted that with the use of a mandrel, a solid die may produce a hollow profile.

A semi-hollow die will extrude a nearly hollow shape, partially enclosing the hollow area with a gap from the tongue connecting to the die body.

A hollow die may take many forms some with a fixed stub mandrel others without. Each style has advantages and disadvantages but each serves a distinct purpose to create the desired profile.

For the optimal quality/cost performance, the aluminum extrusion die maker, extruder and purchaser must each understand the goals of the other and work together.

Benefits of Using Aluminum Extrusion Suppliers Vs. Competing Metals

Aluminum has competed against roll formed steel and copper extrusions with many benefits over the two metals. Getec Industrials has provided an extensive list of benefits, giving equal measure to each. This shows how each metal has a particular strength over the others listed.

The list includes items following the properties of each metal. Properties are important in the application concept for metals because of their use. This could include conductivity, corrosion resistance, and energy savings.

The # 1 Way Heat Pipe Manufacturers Benefit Businesses

A heat pipe is known to manage heat transfer in its applications. In a recent article in Energy Live News, a heat pipe has helped a gas power plant to cut about 300,000 tons of CO2 per year. This news was unveiled after the new Isle of Grain power station in Kent discovered the heat pipe cuts so much gas each year.

The addition of the heat pipe has been approved by Ed Davey, Energy Secretary, as part of a response to the global awareness to reduce emissions as well as the nationwide effort to power the economy. In the article, the heat pipe is said to save gas powered by 100,000 houses and reduces carbon emissions to equal 60,000 cars being taken off the road. This, according to Ed Davey in an article in Utility Week, is how the UK’s reduction of carbon emissions will make “a big and lasting difference.”

This incredible effort is the result of heat pipe manufacturers collaborating with the plant to provide solutions for energy challenges that present themselves. With the introduction of new technology, heat pipe manufacturers have the ability to create efficient power nationally and abroad.

Increasing "Green" Soda Cans

In a recent New York Times article, Novelis, an American supplier of aluminum sheets, set a goal to make cans out of a single alloy. Their aim is to use recycled materials. This challenge was presented after difficulty recycling cans because they're made with two kinds of aluminum. With changes in the can, they're looking for ways to still provide low cost cans.

In standard aluminum extrusions, the advantages are simple. First, the process of extrusion is economical. Second, the properties of aluminum outweigh other materials. Extruded aluminum saves your business money because of the value added to the project.
