In modern aircraft, aluminum extrusion profiles like aluminum shapes and aluminum tubes are used extensively. The weight to strength ratio of aluminum has been very important to aviation so to reach all the way back to the Wright Brothers. So, an extrusion company supplies extruded aluminum tubes and shapes for a wide range of applications mainly within the interior of the aircraft.
Throughout the interior of an airplane on the gallery workshops, interior doors and overhead bins, hinges are found. Extrusion of finished goods mainly occurs in either hollow or solid designs. They are mainly extruded using 6061- T5/T6. Because of its relatively high strength, good anodize response and good machinability, this alloy is usually chosen. Mainly the anodizing, assembling and supplying occurs in lengths from a few inches to over 120 degrees.
To affix the interior components of the interior walls and aircraft frames, brackets are used. Good examples of the use of extruded aluminum are those brackets which hold overhead bins in place. 6061- T5/T6is the range in which the brackets are typically made. To take advantage of the light weight metals and ability to take complex forms, custom extruded brackets have been designed by the aerospace engineers.
For interior lightning needs LED is significantly used to lower the power. They also lower the maintenance costs due to their long life. So, in this case extruded aluminum shapes are used as both a bracket and heat sink. Aluminum extrusion holds the LED circuit board in place and also cools the circuit board by pulling the heat away. 6063- T5 is the common alloy most commonly used for LED brackets and heat sinks. aluminum extrusion profiles .
