Richardson Metals Custom Aluminum Extrusion Capabilities

Since 1980, our team at Richardson Metals has built a reputation  providing custom aluminum extrusions to a variety of industries.  We believe in producing the highest quality extrusions and focus  on low to medium productions runs, with an emphasis on superior delivery and customer service.

Richardson Metals production capabilities are:

• 4.5" diameter press – parts must fit within a 4" diameter circle and weigh less than 2.5 #/ft.

• 550-ton RAM press

• Thicknesses as low as 0.020" and tolerances as low as ±.005" if required. For special tolerances that require additional dimensional accuracy, ±.002" may be achieved.

The two popular grades of aluminum that Richardson Metals most commonly works with are:

• Aluminum 6061 – Provides good strength, machinability, weldability and formability making 6061 a popular choice for many aluminum extrusion capabilities

• Aluminum 6063 – Provides the best combination of strength and extrudability along with high surface finishing characteristics.

The wide variety of shapes Richardson Metals can extrude include:

• Solid shapes

• Custom shapes

• Semi-hollow shapes

• Rod/bar

• Tubing

• Custom shapes

Our 14,400 sq. ft. facility will handle volume runs and prototype runs. As a member of the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), committed to continually learning new information about the comprehensive information  about extrusion’s characteristics, applications,environmental benefits, design and technology to users, product designers, engineers and the academic community. Our quality team will provide post run optical comparisons, inspections, sampling and certificate of conformance with all of our extrusions if required.

Custom Aluminum Extrusions

Aluminum extrusions provide solutions to a wide range of applications that require lightweight, durable, yet complex shapes. The extrusion process begins by heating an aluminum billet to 900° to 925°F which is then forced through a die that was custom engineered to create the desired shape. Richardson Metals, Inc. provides custom aluminum extrusions in unique shapes that fit a variety of specifications for our customers. Such as:

• Sports & Recreation

• Space Technology

• Machine Shops

• Home Décor

• Electronics

• Medical Equipment

• Construction

With tolerances of ±.005 (if required), Richardson Metals often can minimize or eliminate any additional machining your part may require.
