Why Choose Star Rapid® for Aluminum Extrusion?

Used in industries ranging from construction to consumer electronics, aluminum extrusion is a manufacturing process in which aluminum alloy is pushed through a die with a specific cross-sectional profile. Both fast and straightforward, aluminum extrusion yields products that are lightweight, strong and resistant to corrosion. Here are several reasons to choose Star Rapid for aluminum extrusion services.

Services to Complete a Wide Range of Projects

Our advanced machinery allows us to make box-section and open-channel dies with dimensions ranging from 185 square millimeters up to 275 x 60 millimeters. We can also make complex extrusion profiles with finished lengths up to 5 meters.

To complement our aluminum extrusion services, we also provide multi-axis CNC post-machining services, such as hole drilling and tapping. Wire EDM is also available for short-run orders that don’t need a dedicated extrusion die.

On-Time Delivery with Tested Performance

Working to complete projects on-time and on-budget, we have 2- to 48-hour response times on RFQ’s 95% of the time, as well as a 90%+ OTD (on-time delivery) against our commitments. We also have robust quality control and quality assurance processes, which help ensure that our finished products work the way they’re supposed to.
