Matritech Inc. is a major Canadian producer of machine components and parts, having offered laser cutting, stamping, assembly, robotic bending and welding, and other services for more than 30 years. Another key service the company offers is aluminum extrusions, which became available five years ago following high customer demand.
In a diverse group of sectors, like road and railway transportation, the medical field, energy systems, and more, extrusion has been a help to many Matritech customers.
Strong and stable metal
Aluminum extrusions are in high demand these days in the industrial world. Manufacturing facilities often use aluminum due to its malleability. Machinists can easily form this sort of metal into new shapes, and blending it with other materials makes it strong and stable.
Extrusion is a technique for transforming aluminum alloys into objects that have cross-sectional profiles. The process consists of heating a billet of aluminum alloy and then transferring it to a loader and forcing it through a die into a container. The next step is to cool off the extruded part, straighten it, and harden it. These extrusions are cut to the necessary lengths and heated in ovens. This step hardens them by speeding up the aging processes.
There are strong competitive advantages that come with aluminum extrusions by Matritech. First, the team manufactures finishing products efficiently by blending extrusion with many other services, all under the same roof at its Drummondville, Que. facility. Another major benefit – the company uses standard machining processes and its own transformation options (like rapid punching, bending, forming, welding, and assembly) to accomplish different production cycles, from short to high-volume runs.
