Why would we use aluminum profile in industrial

2020-01-10
Most modern factory floors require workbenches, and many stainless steel and wood workbenches have been replaced by aluminum profiles. As a manufacturer of aluminum profiles and workbenches, let me first talk about what aluminum profiles are.

Aluminum profiles are aluminum alloy materials with different cross-sectional shapes obtained by hot-melting and extruding aluminum rods. The production process of aluminum profiles mainly includes three processes: casting, extrusion and surface treatment. Among them, the surface treatment mainly includes: anodizing, electrophoretic coating, fluorocarbon spraying, powder spraying, wood grain transfer and other processes.

Next we compare aluminum and steel. In the manufacturing sector, steel has always been a popular material because it is cheap and has a wide range of applications. However, steel also has many disadvantages, which are time-consuming and labor-intensive. And the steel connection needs to be welded, which costs a lot of money. In addition, the processed materials often cannot be completely matched, so it is necessary to reprocess them. When reprocessing is performed, even the re-investment of the machine is needed, which virtually increases the cost. And steel is much heavier than aluminum, which makes transportation and installation less convenient.

Therefore, despite the low production cost of steel, inflexible processing can lead to shorter life and double production costs. Steel also needs regular anti-corrosion treatment, which still requires a lot of cost. The inflexibility of processing and the costs associated with high transport weights make it unprofitable to re-use materials that are no longer needed.

But with aluminum, the situation is completely different. The material is highly flexible both in manufacturing and in use. Using aluminum will be more economical and environmentally friendly than steel. And the weight of aluminum is extremely light, only one third of steel, so the price is almost the same as steel. And also has a certain load-bearing capacity. The machining process is very simple, no special machinery and equipment are needed, and no deep training of employees is required. In addition, the aluminum profile workbench does not need to be welded, and is connected with a special matching connector, which can be disassembled and assembled at will to achieve secondary use. In addition, no corrosion protection measures are required, which reduces maintenance costs.

Therefore, aluminum can be used instead of steel when the load requirements are not very high.
