Military Technology Manufacturers Trust Minalex for Helmet Mounts

Minalex has been extruding aluminum components for helmet mounts for a top manufacturer of military mounting technology for 25 years. We supply this company with products that can be used for anything mounted to a helmet, such as cameras, binoculars, night vision goggles, flashlights, water containers, and battery packs. The client then affixes these mounts to helmets they’ve manufactured and sells them to the military.

When you’re ordering thousands of helmet mounts in each shape – tens of thousands every year – and the soldiers who wear these helmets depend on technology for their very survival, there is no room for error. It all comes down to fit, and this manufacturer trusts Minalex to extrude aluminum components for helmet mounts according to extremely tight tolerances.

This manufacturer orders helmet mount aluminum extrusion components in a variety of different shapes. They periodically request new shapes as technology and equipment evolve because they know Minalex can accommodate virtually any requirement. A single helmet could have as many as three different Minalex parts on it. Our aluminum extrusions can take on a variety of finishes, including black matte or camo.

If you supply the military with technology for soldiers in the field, let Minalex provide you with custom helmet mount aluminum extrusion components that meet tight tolerances for precision and fit.
