3 LED Lighting Design Challenges Solved Using Aluminum Extrusions

The use of LED (light-emitting diode) lighting is growing rapidly thanks to its many benefits: higher-quality light, greater energy efficiency, and lower maintenance costs. In fact, a report by Radiant Insights predicts the global LED lighting market to reach $63.1 billion by 2020. Yet for all the energy and maintenance saving advantages, conversion to LEDs… Read More »

Understanding Aluminum Extrusion Tolerances

OEM engineers want precision in meeting the exact specifications of the aluminum components that go into their products. There is an expectation that everything from the extruded profile through the machining, fabricating and finishing will fully meet the requirements for the intended function. However, a level of variance in dimensional or physical property control is… Read More »
