It generally takes 5-6 weeks to produce a mill finish new section from order and drawing approval. This lead time may vary depending on order load at the time.
The minimum production quantity will vary depending on the size of the section. For smaller to medium size sections generally a minimum of 250 to 350 kgs is required. For larger sections the minimum may be 500kgs to 1000kgs. Our sales team will be happy to confirm at the time of your enquiry. If we are holding your sections in stock smaller call off quantities will be available. See “Can you hold stock of my sections ? ” below.
Samples of your section can be produced for approval before bulk production. This may incur a set up charge over and above the cost of the metal.
The British standard for aluminium extrusion tolerances on dimension and form is BS EN 755-9. Tolerances tighter than the standard are sometimes achievable and our sales team will be happy to advise you on this.
Extrusions are normally produced, straight off the press, in any length of your choosing between 3.0 – 7.0 mtrs. We have the in house capability to re cut to shorter lengths should you require.
