Aluminum can help you obtain weight and production savings, and improve the quality and efficiency of your vessels through:

Weight reduction

Aluminum reduces weight without sacrificing structural strength.

Torsion strength resistance

The unique qualities of extruded aluminum component design provides you with exceptionally high torsion strength resistance.

Unmatched experience and expertise

We offer aluminum components that are designed to meet heavy structural loads and cope with aggressive environments. You will experience:

  • Significantly shorter assembly time
  • Little material distortion when applying friction stir welding, resulting in unmatched flatness tolerances

Aluminum is strong

Aluminum is very light, thanks to its low density. But extrusions can also be made strong and durable. It all depends on the application and the engineering behind it. In a ship, vessel designers can achieve weight savings of 40 percent over steel.
