The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) is launching a new series of webinars aimed at engineers and designers who wish to delve deeper into the ins and outs of aluminum extrusions. The new series, AEC Aluminum Extrusion Tech, is intended to inform and educate those with some knowledge of aluminum extrusions but who are interested in a more technical focus. The first webinar in this series will be hosted by AEC on April 19th and will cover specifying aluminum extrusions.
April 19, 2017
2:00 p.m. EDT
Speaker: Greg Lea, Regional Sales and Technical Manager for Hydro Aluminum
ASTM B221 and B221M is a material specification standard for aluminum extruded bars, rods, wire, profiles and tubes. The requirements are in place to give the purchaser confidence that the product is produced to their expectations and are consistent with the same products regardless of the producer.
This webinar provides an overview of the ASTM B221/B221M standard and walks through pertinent sections of the standard to help you better understand the ordering process for aluminum extrusions when ordering to an ASTM standard, and what to expect from the manufacturer. Sections covered include Tensile Properties, Heat Treatment and Tempers, Chemistries, Dimensional Tolerances, Certifications, Quality and more.
Register now, as space is limited.
