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, and commitment 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.
Mid-States Aluminum also boasts an ERP extrusion tool management system and offers extrusion design development.
In-House Aluminum Extrusion Capabilities
- 4.5" (114 mm) diameter - 880 ton
- 8.0" (178 mm) diameter - 2,200 ton
- 8.0" (203 mm) diameter - 3,150 ton
- As low as 0.05 lbs/ft
- Up to 5.0 lbs/ft
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.
