Why Extrusions?

A commonly asked question is "Why are extrusions better than weld nuts or other fastener applications?"

  • Extrusions are stronger
  • Extrusions are significantly more resistant to vibration induced failure
  • Extrusions can perform better in sudden, off-axis load conditions (crashes)
  • Extrusions are dimensionally consistent (no off-center hole locations or "winking")
  • Extrusions never fall off or break loose
  • Extrusions usually save weight
  • Extrusions cost less and require fewer operations than weld nuts
