We guide our customers through the entire life cycle of their products: from initial concept & design to alloy selection; followed by proto-typing, production and testing. We are also able to advise our customers about post extrusion processes such as machining, forming, and coatings.

Engineering Support

magnesium engineering support
  • Our magnesium extrusion solution process starts by offering our customers basic engineering support and a selection of different magnesium alloys in a wide variety of extrusion sizes and shapes. We offer:
Alloy selection for application
Choose from over 9 alloys or allow us to develop a custom alloy to fit your application
We provide rendering of 3D models and quick part prototyping
Conceptual FEA
We can assist with basic FEA (or initial guidance only)
Cost optimization analysis
We can make recommendations on cost reduction of part
Custom tooling design
We conduct custom tooling design to meet customer requirements


magnesium extrusions
  • Our magnesium extrusion capabilities include a wide range of magnesium alloy sizes and shapes tailored to fit their application. We offer:
Profile Sizes
We can extrude a minimum profile of a 0.047” diameter rod and maximum profile that can fit a 9” circle
We are able to hold very tight tolerances- down to +/- 0.006” (+/- 0.15 mm) or lower on a case-by-case basis
Wall Thickness
We can achieve a minimum wall thickness down to 0.028” (0.7mm)
Quenching and heat treatment
We have capability for quenching and heat treatment
We offer custom extrusion packaging


magnesium cnc machining
Complementing our magnesium extrusion solution is an array of secondary operations to suite our customer’s needs. We offer:
CNC Machining
We have in-house CNC machines for post extrusion fabrication
Anode Fabrication
We produce welded, outlet and link anodes
We can spool wire shapes after extrusion
We guide customers with forming requirements
We offer lathing when required
We can TIG and MIG weld in-house
We offer assembly of parts when required


coated handguards
When customers need corrosion protection for their application, we can draw upon our experience in recommending the right type of coating for their needs. Typical coatings include but are not limited to:
Passivation layer for magnesium is typically applied by Chromate or Phosphate conversion; Anodizing or PEO/MAO
Additional coating options
Additional coating options for magnesium include E-Nickel, E-coating, Powder coating and Ceramic coatings

Alloy Development

custom magnesium alloys
When an existing magnesium alloy doesn’t quite meet all our customer’s requirements, we are able to explore additional options for alloy development to meet our customer’s mechanical, chemical and physical requirements.
Custom Magnesium Alloys
We can custom tailor magnesium alloys design and production capability to address specific customer requirements
New Magnesium Alloys
We have developed magnesium alloys that meet the FAA’s flammability test requirements as verified by an independent lab
Heat Treatments
We can homogenize, T6 quench or T5 heat-treat new alloys
