Aluminum Impacts – Simple and Complex shapes

Simple and complex shapes are generally asymmetrical in shape, have tolerances ranging from +/-0.005 range, and require no special surface finish outside the normal range of the process. These products often require minimal tooling costs and may require other forms of secondary processing following the impact extrusion process. Examples of these types of products are air conditioning cans, power equipment, handles, and oxygen concentrators. Metal Impact’s capability to use automated press lines to produce high volumes at high production rates increases efficiencies.

Aluminum Impacts – Difficult to Manufacture

Metal Impact views the aluminum impact, difficult to manufacture product category, as its niche market. Product requirements in this category require much closer tolerances for size, concentricity, straightness, surface finish, and strength. These products usually require specialized processes utilizing multiple steps in the extrusion to consistently maintain the product requirements.  Tolerances for size can be as close as +/- 0.001″ straightness requirements of 0.0005″ over a 1″ length, and surface finishes of 8 microns. Often times, the capabilities of a manufacturer to meet product requirements comes down to owning specialized equipment, using the right lubrication, or the industry experience and technical capabilities of the staff.
