Aircraft extrusions are manufactured by pushing an aluminum billet through a shaped die. In order to turn the alloying elements into the desired metallurgical structure the extrusions are heat treated to per-determined temperature followed by water quenching to lock in the mechanical properties. Aircraft Extrusion Company uses a network of mills throughout North America and Europe that produce extruded shapes in 2024, 2219, 7075, 7050, 7178.
As a supplier and manufacturer, we are passionate about your projects. Our extrusions are manufactured in the USA by world leading mills like Alcoa and Kaiser Aluminum. 2024-T3511 or 7075-T6511 aircraft grade angle, channels or Tee’s, we are here to help. We distribute a wide range of shapes from Tiernay Metals part numbers, Army/Navy, Boeing Aircraft and Lockheed Martin. The majority of which is stocked in 2024, 2129, 7050 and 7075. Commonly know as hard alloy extrusion or extruded shapes.
In addition to customized aluminium products, Aircraft Extrusion Co offers a portfolio of the most commonly applied and ordered shapes.
There are many application for aircraft extrusion. Not just for aerospace use, but material is used where any stress or strength performance is required. Examples of extrusion application are: Commercial and Military wing and fuselage structures. Ground support equipment and racing cars where high strength is a major factor. The extrusion process makes the most of aluminum's unique combination of physical characteristics.
