FAQ's - Aluminium Fabrication
Aluminium fabrication is the process of creating metal products from aluminium. This can be done through a variety of methods, including forming, drawing, extrusion, and machining, in order to create a finished product.
Aluminium is a popular metal to work with for products since it possesses several advantageous properties.
- Lightweight - aluminium is a lightweight material, making it easy to handle
- Strong - despite being lightweight, aluminium retains a desirable strength
- Machinable - aluminium is easy to machine, meaning it does not require specialist equipment or processes which may be costly
- Cost effective - aluminium is an affordable material to purchase
- Sustainable - aluminium is both sustainable and recyclable
- Non toxic - aluminium is non-toxic, therefore can be used in a wide variety of industries such as food preparation and agriculture
Some of the most common fabrication techniques include extrusion, drawing, forming, and machining. These processes can be complemented by auxiliary operations such as welding or bonding.
Extrusion is a process where aluminium is forced by pressure through or around a die to create a specific shape.
Drawing is where aluminium is pulled through a (typically tapered) die to stretch the metal.
Forming is a process where aluminium is shaped into a specific form through a variety of methods, such as stamping, pressing and bending.
Machining is where aluminium is shaped through a reductive method - removing material by means of cutting, drilling, grinding, or milling to create the desired shape.
