The production process of aluminum profile
is a highly complex process, which consists of several stages. First, the aluminum billet is heated to between 300 and 595 degrees celsius. Once heated, the blank is then pulled out of the mold and onto the cooling table. After being pulled from the mold, the aluminum profiles are cooled using a process called extrusion. In this step, a fan cools the aluminum profile as it is pulled out of the mold.
Next, a protective film is applied to the surface of the aluminum profile. After that, knurls are applied to create serrated teeth on the surface. Rolling also feed polyvinyl chloride strip. The aluminum profile is then formed. Repeat this process for the remaining components of the configuration file. Depending on the specifications, a variety of colors or shapes can be manufactured.
In this step, the aluminum extrusion process begins with the design process. The design process defines many production parameters. The type of alloy to be used and its finishing requirements determine the type of aluminum extruder and die design. The section diagrams also help determine the maximum circle of the aluminum profile. After the design process is complete, the machine type and mold must be selected. The process flow of aluminum profile production starts from design.
Extrusion process is the most common and popular process for producing aluminum profiles. It produced many new designs and shapes. It involves a process similar to squeezing toothpaste. The aluminum billet is heated in a mold and pushed out by a tool called a mold. The blank is then sent to the cutting and finishing process. If the extrusion process goes smoothly, the aluminum profile is ready for use.
The next step in the aluminum profile production process involves cutting the extruded piece. This step is essential because thermal stress can cause extrusion deformation. Once this step is complete, the extrusion is transferred from the press to the cooling plane. Once it reaches room temperature, it gets stretched. Stretchers are mechanically secured to help straighten and squeeze. The extruded piece will then be ready for the next step, called bending or welding.
After bending, the aluminum billet is placed in an extruder. The hydraulic cylinder applies 15,000 tons of pressure to the billet. The billet is then expanded to fill the walls of the container and a pressure compression die is used to form the aluminum profile. Once the billet is formed, the extrusion process continues. After a few steps, the aluminum blank is fully formed. If the extrusion process is unsuccessful, the aluminum billet is sent back to the scrap heap.
