Our customer, a large sporting goods equipment manufacturer, had this part originally produced in steel. Our manufacturing team was asked if the part could be replicated in aluminum and achieve the same strength requirements. Working closely with the customer’s design team to ensure they took full advantage of all aluminum extrusion manufacturing functions, the final design resulted in an equally strong aluminum part that could be manufactured for less than the prior steel part. In addition, the decreased weight of the product dramatically reduced the customer’s distribution shipping costs.
