Capabilities: Aluminum Extrusions

Mid-States Aluminum Corp. delivers short lead-times, consistent performance.

We have three aluminum extrusion presses in our state-of-the-art facility – aligning with our overall lean manufacturing processes, to deliver shorter lead-times and consistent quality. Our diverse range of extrusion presses can produce everything from the most common, large extruded profiles to some of the smallest and thinnest-walled extruded profiles in the industry. This means we can select the right press for your project, based on required tolerance, wall thickness, circumscribing circle size, shape and order quantity.

Maximum circle sizes are directly related to the billet diameter used for each press. The billet diameter generally equals the maximum circumscribing circle that each extrusion press can produce, although special tooling may be designed to extrude shapes larger than the billet diameter.

Alloys

Mid-States Aluminum Corp. offers 6000-series aluminum alloys, each having distinct advantages to the end-use application of your products. Alloy selection varies based on the specific requirements in strength, weldability, forming characteristics, finish, corrosion resistance, machinability and other expectations of the end-use application.
