Aluminum Extrusions & Downstream Manufacturing

It’s a simple idea. When you manufacture a component using custom aluminum extrusions, fewer process stages and, consequently, significantly lower production times are needed to make a finished part. Partnering with overseas firms for contract manufacturing of finished aluminum components has become an increasingly less viable option. Time is money. As such, time is also… Read More »

Expanded Aluminum Component Manufacturing

In 2007, we initiated the transition our company’s mission from that of an aluminum extruder to an integrated extrusion and component manufacturing business. Extending our business focus from extruding aluminum profiles to providing complete… 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 »

In House Machining Capabilities

CNC machining

Producing aluminum extrusions is only part of the expanding Vitex Extrusion story. In addition to our new world-class extrusion line, we have been continually investing in high-speed machining centers designed to minimize total Takt time for hi-production, 3, 4 & 5 axis requirements. All our machining centers feature multi modes of operation which allow for parts… Read More »
