Metal Impact is your source for aluminum and steel impact extrusions that introduce a series of cost and performance improvements. We are experienced specialists in highly technical, precise, and difficult-to-manufacture extrusions. With advanced design, engineering, and production capabilities across multiple facilities, we create near-net shape parts that positively impact the success of your project. Our in-house engineering team, tool-and-die design expertise, manufacturing capabilities, and finishing services ensure end-to-end supply chain quality and efficiency.
This manufacturing process starts with a lubricated metal slug or “puck” that is placed in a die. It is then hit with a punch, forcing the metal to flow forward or backward into shape.
Single-stroke impacting creates parts at rates up to 4,000 per hour, produces superb tolerance integrity, results in minimal waste, and costs less than other metal-forming processes.
Extruded parts offer a range of cost and performance advantages over other metal fabrication methods. Is it right for you? There are many factors to consider.
