7 Design Decisions That Increase Your Aluminum Extrusion Die Tooling Costs

Despite the many unique advantages of aluminum extrusion manufacturing, many product designers and engineers still overlook it in favor of what they believe to be cheaper options. This decision is often based solely on the initial cost of an extrusion die. Most engineers don’t consider or are simply unaware that costs and lead times for die tooling can vary dramatically based on a handful of design decisions they make.
