Rolled Profiles and Shapes
Roll, stretch and Forming of Extruded Profiles in 2000 and 7000 series aluminum/aluminium. Three-roll bending pushes an extrusion around three different rolls placed in a triangular shape. The rolls are adjusted to form a precise angle, up to a 360-degree rotation, that can roll horizontally or vertically. As the extrusion is slowly moved across the power-driven rollers, it begins to curve and bend. Extrusions are limited to a single bend per cycle, meaning a higher angle of bend would take longer to reach the desired angle.
Rolled Extrusion for B17 Gun Turret
An interesting case study. Our temp tested with multiple alloys to roll bend 2024 for the B17 Ball Turret. We rolled a 0.625x0.750 angle the hard way through a 48 inch radius. The results were a smooth and continuous circle, with minimal folding on the sides. We made siz sets and the customer was very happy with the results.
Extrusion Profiling - A.O.G.
A new service we now offer. Started in 2018 Extrusion Profiling is the process of offering an existing extruded shape in 2024 or 7075 and machine down to the exact dimensions of the new shape. Using certified material we are able to provide up to 8ft lengths in a 1 week lead time, accompanied by our certificate of conformance with chemical and mechanical properties included..
Our AS9100 certified quality management system allows us to provide the consistency and traceability required in the aviation industry. We pride ourselves on our document control procedures which ensure all required documentation is controlled, distributed, and maintained appropriately. Our planning and scheduling department ensures that projects flow smoothly through the shop and all required materials are available when needed.
In-House Design Team
