Extrusions

APEL houses one of the most modern fleets of presses in North America. With two presses in Calgary, Alberta and three in Coburg, Oregon, APEL is ideally situated to supply all western North American markets.

Aluminum extrusions are created from workable alloys that have been pushed through a die to produce your choice of hollow, semi-hollow, or solid shapes with high levels of accuracy and quality. Aluminum extrusion techniques make the most of the material’s unique physical characteristics, namely it’s malleability and strength. Aluminum as a material of choice is broadly used in many different applications, with many more opportunities becoming available when the aluminum is alloyed with additional metals.

APEL’s custom aluminum extrusions are the ideal choice for customers who are looking to reduce the purchase costs and overall effort in machining for their final product. The results are consistency, less material waste, and total control over your design.

From extrusions that require more basic processes – precision cutting, drilling, tapping, or punching – to fully finished products, we’ve got you covered.
