Segmented Tube
  • Material: 6063 Aluminum Alloy
  • Size/Weight: Approximately 2.5” wide individual sections
  • Processes: Profile Extrusion, cut to length
  • Industry/Application: not disclosed

Sometimes the solution to a big problem, is to break it down into smaller pieces. Exampled here is a concept we presented to a customer to reduce the size of a very large extrusion they had designed. This approach reduced setup cost dramatically, and made a potentially unsuccessful design work beautifully. Four pieces of the identical single-hollow profile assemble to produce a significantly larger and more complex shape.
