People ask us some great questions all the time: What is the thinnest wall you can extrude? I need ±.001" tolerances, can you hold that? What’s the largest part you can make? And one of our favorites; What are miniature extrusions?
The old adage “you get what you pay for” has been used and overused time and again. But like many cliches there’s an underlying truth. Every business has to provide more value to their customers just than the cost of the goods or services they provide.

In electric cars, engineers take advantage of the high strength-to-weight ratio of aluminum that enable the car to go further on each charge. Recent press releases by Audi, BMW, General Motors and Ford discussing their plans to develop and manufacture electric vehicles, suggests that they believe the fully electric car is the inevitable future of their industry.
