Aluminum Extrusions for Aerospace Applications – Always Delivered On Time
Aluminum extrusions play an important role in the modern aerospace industry, thanks to their high strength-to-weight ratio and resistance to corrosion. We supply round extruded aluminum rods in 2024 and 7075 aluminum, two alloys commonly found in today’s aircraft. We also supply 6000 series extrusions for cabin interiors and light aircraft structural applications, extruded at ISO 9001:2015 certified facilities in India.
Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ): 500 kgs (0.55 US Tons) per shape
Hard Alloy Extruded Aluminum Rods
2024 and 7075 are both high-strength aluminum alloys which are often used in aircraft, particularly in the highly-stressed structures of aircraft wings and fuselages. Our extruded round rods can be used for a variety of applications.
Custom Medium-Strength Extrusions
The 6xxx series has a wide range of general-purpose alloys that can be used for cabin interior applications. Due to their good strength and corrosion resistance properties, they are also used in the structures of light and homebuilt aircraft.
High Quality & On-Time Delivery
It is of the utmost importance that your suppliers meet and exceed quality and delivery standards. Our Western-managed team is on the ground in India, working to ensure that your extrusions meet quality standards and are delivered on time.
Round Extruded Aluminum Rod – 2024 & 7075
These round bars/rods can be extruded in 2024 or 7075 aluminum. These alloys are common in the aerospace industry for applications such as gears, shafts, and support pins. 2024 aluminum’s primary alloying element is copper, giving it high strength and fatigue resistance. 7075 aluminum’s primary alloying element is zinc and it has an ultimate tensile strength of 560 mpa(min). These round bars can be extruded up to 150mm in width.
