Our customer for this project is a global leader in remote working and conference communication technologies. They set up collaborative work environments for major brands, enabling staff at these companies to link up in real time with colleagues and clients across the world.

We were tasked with helping to design and create an attractive framework to surround our customer’s state-of-the-art technology. They’d already had one surround profile created, but it was angular, unappealing, and hardly the best advert for their slick conferencing set-ups.

The initial design suggested by our customer wasn’t extrudable, so we worked with them to design and prototype a profile that would work. Once the extensive testing stages were out of the way, we delivered a turnkey extrusion solution to the customer, supplying and machining the extruded profiles, and providing a bespoke powder coating finish.

The detailed version

When this customer got in touch with us via our website, it was with a simple enough request: to create a prototype for an attractive, extruded aluminium surround for their remote conferencing technology.

But, once we’d spoken with the customer in more detail, it was clear there was a lot more we could do to make their project a success.

During the prototyping stages, it became obvious that the design the customer was looking for wasn’t going to be easily extrudable. Given that the customer’s ultimate goal was to secure 2% of the global market for their industry, our challenge was to help them design a profile that was relatively cheap to manufacture but visually appealing enough to communicate the brand’s value.

Our design support team worked with the customer to achieve a design that was extrudable, offering additional assistance with the required corner mouldings and aluminium bending. The result was a perfected prototype that could be put into production.

During a tour of our facilities, the customer was impressed by our dedicated aluminium powder coating centre, where we’re able to offer 200 stock finishes, as well as a range of bespoke colours - ideal for matching to our customers’ exact specifications.

The outcome

We’re continuing to work with this customer. The design is complete and finalised, and the product has been put to market. Sales are starting to increase, and the customer’s on their way to securing a large market share, which will mean tens of thousands of units needed.

Our initial design support has enabled the customer to make significant savings on expensive aluminium tooling costs, and has created a product that is both functional and aesthetically on point.

Yes, we offer free issue CNC tube / pipe bending and notching services to a number of customers, although this doesn’t make up much of the CNC bending we do (which usually forms part of wider and more complex projects). We’re able to carry out one-off free issue CNC tube / pipe bending and notching services or set up a standing arrangement, depending on your requirements. Please contact us if you’d like to know more.

Yes: with our in-house capabilities and those of our trusted supply partners, we’re able to offer a comprehensive range of CNC tube / pipe bending and notching services. We’ve also got a whole host of other machining and fabrication services for aluminium extrusion, which means that we can offer things like vibro deburring, welding and anodising in addition to any required CNC tube / pipe bending and notching solutions.

Yes. Low-quality aluminium extrusion can sometimes undergo CNC tube bending without an issue, but it’s important to remember that cheaper extruded aluminium is less likely to perform well under machining. Using cheap, low-quality aluminium extrusion is more likely to result in poor quality bends, increased amounts of scrap and wastage, and even breakage during the bending process. No matter how good the machinery and the process is, if the quality of the extrusion is too low, there’s not much we can do. When choosing the appropriate alloy for your application, it’s really important to bear in mind how it’s going to be worked, and how strong/malleable it is. Our technical team can advise you on the right kind of aluminium alloy for your project.

Yes, we offer in-house mandrel bending services, and work closely with our network of extrusion fabrication partners to delivery other specialist bending services, including ring bending. Find out more information about our aluminium extrusion bending services here.

Yes, our aluminium extrusion bending machines are just some of the numerous computer numerical control (CNC) machining centres we have at our fabrication facility. We have the technical expertise to advise you on the appropriate form of extrusion bending for your particular profile.
