When designing an aluminium profile, a shape that minimizes the amount of finishing required is generally chosen, although some further finishing may be needed.
Our processing of aluminium profiles is relatively inexpensive, because Sapa does it all under one roof. The client is spared the need for any extra steps.
Finishing can be done before or after surface treatment. The choice is determined by what is required from the product. Protective anodisation, where the profile is coated with a 3-5 µm, thin oxide layer, is an excellent way to prevent damage during mechanical processing.
Sapa Profiles Nederland performs in-house all of the procedures that your aluminium profile may require, such as sawing within narrow tolerances, drilling, milling, punching, welding, bending, mounting, etc.
