Uses and features of modular aluminum extrusions

Written on by Roberto De Lorenzi in Extruded profiles
Profilati Alluminio is a company that is specialized in manufacturing the widest range of profiles, including modular aluminum extrusions. Available in their standard, special, or customized versions, our products are unique on the market. Find them out in this article!



Modular aluminum extrusions are highly demanded profiles on the market, thanks to their easy application, versatility, and resistance even in more complex structures.

Profall’s range of modular aluminum extrusions

Thanks to our know-how and production capabilities, we are able to realize multiple types of modular aluminum extrusions. In particular, we manufacture two categories of this type of profile:

Standard modular aluminum extrusions

Standard aluminum extrusion profiles are modular profiles made in standard shapes and dimensions for the industry. They resort to the best aluminum alloys in order to offer specific technical and mechanical qualities.

With dimensional tolerances of +/- 0.15 mm in diameter, the standard modular aluminum profiles in Profall’s catalog are:

Special modular aluminum extrusions

Profall also produces special extrusions, which are modular profiles offering more complex technical and mechanical features, as well as specific shapes and dimensions.

These modular aluminum extrusions are hard to find on the market and can be realized in extremely thin sizes, thanks to the precision and technological level of our manufacturing processes.

Here are the special profiles we can provide:

Modular aluminum extrusions: what are they and why choose them

A modular aluminum extrusion is a profile created following the principle of modularity, according to which a standard size is to be used in terms of dimensions and shapes. These solutions can be easily reproduced and offer great versatility in several applications.

Modular aluminum extrusions can be used together to form a more complex structure, thus they must be designed with the utmost accuracy in order to be functional in every situation.

Generally, as mentioned above, standard shapes and dimensions are the most produced, but that is not mandatory. This means that special modular aluminum extrusions can be manufactured while still respecting the functionality of their destination of use.

Consequently, modular aluminum extrusions guarantee considerable advantages from the industrial point of view. Specifically, they:

  • are easy and fast to install and fix
  • do not require mechanical machining
  • need low maintenance
  • are highly flexible and versatile
  • guarantee full reliability
  • meet more complex requirements of use

Normally, modular aluminum extrusions resort to high-quality alloys, in order to offer technical and mechanical features that are unique. For example, the 6060 alloy guarantees excellent resistance to external agents, corrosion, and shocks, but also lightness.

Profall’s services: customization and supply of modular aluminum extrusions

Profall does not exclusively design and manufacture standard and special modular aluminum extrusions but also offers a full service to every customer. This includes the creation of specific profiles and their international supply:

  • we can customize the modular aluminum extrusions in our catalog so that they meet your application needs. How? Based on the technical drawing of the profile you wish for, we’ll test the feasibility of the project and proceed to its prototyping and, after that, the pre-series production.
  • as concerns supply, starting from a minimum order quantity of 200 kg, we can provide you with modular aluminum extrusions in the format you prefer – bars or reel – wherever you are. Our supplying service, in fact, is worldwide, and you can receive your order in just 2 working weeks.

Thus, Profall offers its customers the possibility to create modular aluminum extrusions with shapes, features, and dimensional tolerances other manufacturers cannot obtain, and the fast delivery of the products you wish for.

Not to mention our after-sale support service, aimed to follow you and assist you everywhere in the world in case of need.
