  • Description:  Aluminum extrusion can create products of form, fit, function, aesthetic appeal, and value and are often the most cost effective and quickest path between a designer's creative concept and implementation of a product. However, many engineers, designers, and architects are not as knowledgable in the use of extrusions for product design as they are with the more commonly used steel. This article will examine some of the issues with aluminum extrusion, including cost, misunderstandings about the material, and improper design analysis, that cause engineers, designers, and architects to consider other material solutions over aluminum extrusion.
