AEC Picks up the slack

Aircraft Extrusion company can produce aluminum profiles in 6061 to the aerospace specification AMS-QQ-A-200/8.The supply of 6061 is in abundance, unfortunately, 6061 to aerospace standards is virtually none-existent. Most companies extruding 6061 are focused on high volume commercial business rather than the harder route of producing 6061 to an aerospace specification. Aircraft Extrusion Company can supply standard and custom shapes in 6061-T6511 AMS-QQ-A-200/8 up to 3 inch circle size. Our product range include complex profiles, close tolerance and a small design envelope.
