offers a wide variety of extruded steel shapes and sizes.
Extruded steel shapes reduce your machining, finishing and
scrap. In an effort to provide you with the most cost efficient
extruded steel shapes, AMEREX has compiled certain recommendations
in order to achieve the most economical design. When you are
designing your extruded shape, keep the following fundamental
design criteria in mind:
facilitate the steel flow through the extruded shape die,
avoid sharp edges.
achieve accurate section reproduction, specify rounded corners
design a groove, key the ratio of depth to width as low
as possible, trying to maintain a one-to-one ratio.
achieve a desired non-symmetrical shape, eliminate any and
all hole requirements.
