Prime Aluminium’s dies are developed for different applications. The general catalogue & price list is available for all.

What are the benefits of using aluminium in its extruded form?

Aluminium is unmatched in extruding a variety of configurations with desirable combinations of physical properties (AS -1664.1 & Bs-8118). Aluminium extrusions provide a high strength-to-weight ratio, close tolerances, ease of joining, good machinability, and excellent thermal properties. Extrusions can be produced in almost final shape required, thereby reducing wastage.

How do I determine the right aluminium alloy?

Prime Aluminium Industries helps you in choosing the best quality alloy AA-6063 for your specific needs.

What is Aluminum Extrusion?

Aluminium extrusions are made from solid aluminium cylinders called billets, which are continuously cast from molten aluminium. Billets are available in a wide variety of alloys, pretreatments and dimensions, depending upon the requirements of the manufacturer. The extrusion process involves aluminium metal being forced through a die with a shaped opening. The extrusion process involves aluminium metal being forced through a die with a shaped opening. This is made possible by preheating the billet to 450-500 C and then applying a pressure of between 500 and 700 MPa (equivalent to the pressure found at the bottom of a 60km high water tank!). The heated and softened metal is forced against the container walls and the die by a hydraulic ram, the only exit is the geometric cross-section of the die opening, and the metal is squeezed out. The extrusion leaves the die at a temperature of around 500 C and the exit temperature is carefully controlled in order to achieve specified mechanical properties, a high quality surface finish and good productivity.
