In most cases you will find that the most expensive profile is the T section aluminium extrusion. It is a single piece of metal, that is melted and extruded to form a section of the object or component that has been designed and specifically intended for use. The T section aluminium extrusion in particular has the ability to carry out the required operation, by providing a thicker wall thickness and greater tensile strength than any other known type of extrusion. As well as this it provides a very economical solution because the required thicker wall is produced on the casting process itself and this reduces the overall weight of the object or component.
The use of the T section extrusion in the manufacture of large components like aircraft and boats is where its main advantage lies. Because the thicker wall can be supplied by a simple casting method there is no requirement for the tooling to be left in a partial state, during the cooling phase, to allow for the cooling of the casting and to form the thicker wall into the required part. Instead the thicker wall is formed in a fully formed state at the casting facility and once cooled is extruded at the job site by the use of a T section aluminium extrusion machine or simply a T section extrusion tool.
It is worth remembering however that even with the use of such a high performance extrusion tool the result of the casting is subject to certain limitations. If it is to be used for producing small components such as screws or hinges then it is essential that the part can be precisely cast and that the casting operations are precision CNC guided. This is normally done by the use of computers in the initial phase of the t section aluminium extrusion work and only when the required materials have been acquired and the required machining parameters have been set. Once the parts have been manufactured then they are shipped to the job site ready for them to be fixed by hand or by a machine. However if it is necessary to use a CNC machine to aid the casting the program of the machine will also need to be followed to the letter.
With some casting operations such as those using a T section aluminium extrusion tool there may be a need for a higher pressure than would otherwise be necessary to form the required components. This pressure may be increased using hydraulic pressure or by means of a pressurized air or nitrogen blast. This depends on the type of part being produced and is a matter of trade offs between cost and efficiency. In such instances it may be better to opt for a lower pressure casting method than one of greater pressure which would result in a cheaper and less efficient tool.
Because T section aluminium extrusion is used to manufacture so many different types of products it has its own industry slang for the product - TCX. The abbreviation stands for 'tourmaline intermetallurgy'. This is because this type of extrusion is used in the fabrication of many different kinds of metal parts. Another industry term is'Titan extrusion' and refers to the aluminium section aluminium extrusion used in the manufacturing of magnesium pieces. Similarly, there is another industry term called 'fluid gas extrusion' which is used for the manufacturing of aluminium and helium parts in which the filler gas is stored in an aerosol canister.
T section aluminium extrusion is used in a wide variety of industries such as automotive, marine technology, power generation, aerospace, chemical industry, cement industry, packaging industry, paper industry and so on. It is widely used in the construction business where it is often used to manufacture the bodies of aeroplanes, boats and trucks. They are also used to manufacture huge components for the defense industry and for constructing ships. However, they are now becoming more popular in the domestic sector. You can see them almost everywhere from clocks to television remote controls.
