In order to get the required length of the aluminum tubes, the extrusion of aluminum is carried out by passing the hot aluminum through dye. The dye used for this purpose is highly cost effective. The cost of the dye will be some hundred dollars. This dye can be reused several times for creating several such tubes. There are plenty of advantages of these tubes, as they are made from aluminum which in itself has several good qualities. In construction fields as well as various industrial fields these tubes are widely used all over the world. Advertising agencies and aerospace also make use of these tubes in plenty.

Aluminum extrusion is a process by which desired shapes are formed from a station of metal. The billet of metal is forcefully inserted through a die by hydraulic ram. Aluminum gets extruded through hot as well as cold process. As this process follows the environmental guidelines and also fulfills the needs of the manufacturers, aluminum extrusion is more popular than other metal alloys. The general aluminum extrusion is done with both hot and cold process, which is known as the direct and indirect extrusion of aluminum respectively. Read More »
