The advantages of aerospace and aircraft aluminum extrusion profiles

In a field where lightness and durability are essential, the aerospace and aircraft aluminum extrusions we manufacture guarantee a reduction of overall vehicle weight, high solidity, and affordable prices.

Aircraft and aerospace are largely using these metal alloys, especially large-scale aluminum extrusions, because they:

  • are highly versatile and suitable for different types of vehicles
  • are highly resistant and easy to work 
  • are light and thin
  • provide high precision for dimensions and finishes
  • offer great performances and best quality



Profall manufactures aluminum structural components and special housings for cockpit electronics and special components for airplanes, helicopters, and launch vehicles. Among the application examples of our aerospace and aircraft aluminum extrusions we find:

  • beams, keels, crosspieces, and longerons
  • cockpits
  • rotating parts of helicopters in the shape of hollow beams
  • landing gears, fuselages, tails
  • fuel tanks


How we deliver high-quality profiles

To ensure the highest quality and precision in the production of aluminum profiles for the aerospace and aircraft industries, Profilati Alluminio uses advanced extrusion techniques. 

One such technique is the compression of a cylindrical aluminum solid block by a horizontal press in such a way that it is forced through one or more holes in the matrix.

We also use strict quality controls throughout the production process. This means that each extruded profile is thoroughly tested to verify its compliance with the specifications required by the customer. These quality checks include visual inspections, dimensional checks, tensile strength tests and corrosion tests.

Finally, we also use finishing techniques to ensure that the profiles meet customer-specific requirements. These techniques may include cutting, milling, drilling, sanding, and polishing, which result in profiles with smooth, uniform surfaces.


Profall’s advantages: why choose us

Profall’s main advantage is to supply you with aluminum profiles that are completely functional – since they are 100% customized according to shapes, dimensions, and finishings, according to your application needs.

But that’s not it: Profall guarantees numerous advantages, such as:

  • the possibility to order small batches of aluminum profiles – generally starting from 200 kg
  • the guarantee of a rapid delivery in about 2 weeks and lower costs which is valid for worldwide shipments
  • after-sale technical support wherever you are
  • immediate response to every customization demand or requirement, to adapt your extrusions to your needs
