High-Quality Aluminum Extrusions From Asia: Made for the Auto Industry
In recent years, the automotive industry has made a major push to reduce vehicle weight. With increased regulations and strong consumer demand for fuel economy, aluminum has become a material of choice for many applications. In many instances, it has come to replace high-strength steel in the body structure. At Gabrian, we have the capabilities to supply auto-industry companies with the extrusions they require.

Get the Profiles You Need for Your Application
Aluminum extrusions are used in an increasing number of applications. In the 1990s, they were used primarily for bumper systems and door beams. But their role has grown with time. Steel and aluminum are now used side-by-side in the automotive bodies of cars and pickup trucks. Alloys in the 6000 and 7000 series provide the high strength needed for safety critical, structural, crush quality, and other types of applications.

Custom Extrusion Capabilities
Your automotive extrusion project has specifications that must be met. Our extrusion and secondary services will help you to get the exact extrusions you require. We can help you lower your costs by manufacturing in India, while still meeting your quality requirements. Our partner extrusion facilities have complete tool & die shops, in-house foundries, surface finishing operations, and the fabrication services you need.
Dies & Tooling
Dies are machined from H13 steel. Profiles can be extruded up to 400mm (15 3/4″) in width, depending on shape, size and CCD. Tooling costs are generally between $800-$1600 with extrusion lead times of 1-2 weeks.
Alloy & Temper
An appropriate alloy can be selected to match your desired strength, corrosion resistance, and other properties. Alloys in the 1000, 2000, 3000, 5000, 6000 and 7000 series are produced at in-house foundries.
Surface finish impacts both the appearance of your profiles and their level of corrosion resistance. Surface finishes available include anodized, powder coated, and even wood-look finish, so you can get the look you desire.
Secondary services like drilling, cutting, or stamping can be performed in-house, once the extrusion and finishing processes are completed. This saves you time and the cost of doing these at your own facilities.
