Learning About Aluminum Extrusion Profiles: 3 Free Resources You Should Use
If you come from a company that relies on painted, welded steel for nearly every operation and process, the thought of using aluminum extrusion profiles might sound intimidating – or even laughable! After all, nothing compares to the power of steel, right?
In fact, structural aluminum and aluminum extrusion profiles is just as strong, is more cost effective and more reusable than steel. It’s often faster to implement and redesign, too. Internationally, manufacturers have been using structural aluminum for complex processes for over 30 years.
In the United States, however, the concept is a bit newer – since the mid-1990s – so it’s reasonable that you still might be a bit uncomfortable using structural aluminum in complex processes like motion control. But there are many industry associations and robotics in manufacturing groups that validate the use of aluminum extrusion profiles. So, don’t take our word for it, check out the associations below for more information.
