Machining Extruded Aluminum Shapes
With our journeyman-level machinists and state-of-the-art equipment, Futura has the expertise to handle a full spectrum of machining aluminum extrusions. Our in-house capabilities—including aluminum profile machining, aluminum extrusion milling, deburring, sawing, and drilling—make it easier for you to keep all your manufacturing processes under a single roof. And that means you can significantly reduce lead times while ensuring consistent product quality every step of the way.
To reduce waste and promote lean manufacturing throughout our aluminum extrusion machining shop, we employ efficient setup techniques like Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED), which helps reduce startup and changeover times between products. It’s just one of the ways we streamline our workflow to get your product in and out of the machine shop quickly and flawlessly. And with our First Pass Yield rate of 98.88%*, you can expect your job to get done right, the first time.
Here at Futura we have automated many processes over the years, and this video shows one of our more complex systems. Due to the volume, this part originally required us to run more than 1 machine. After they noticed an opportunity for improvement Futura engineers designed and built this robot tended CNC Machining Cell. This cell allows us to easily keep up with customer demand for t-slot extruded and machined aluminum shapes for the transportation market.
