CNC Machining of Aluminium Extrusions

Precision in house CNC machining facilities to convert raw lengths of aluminium extrusion to customer specific components and parts


We can also manufacture your components from free issue materials if you require.

Machining of aluminium extrusion involves one or more of the following processes.



CNC Machining and Milling

Our modern range of specialised CNC machines for aluminium extrusions and plate have the capability to efficiently manufacture complex or simple machined detail you require for your extruded products.


An example of a piece of Precision CNC machining - Two end caps

Utilising our lean manufacturing techniques and our advanced jigging design we can quickly produce your extruded aluminium components in any quantity and to the accuracy required.
