(Whitehouse Station, NJ – June 2019) For those looking to make the best parts and products from aluminum, a change to the way they approach the manufacturing process can lead to greater efficiency and profitability. The alternative method of extruding first followed by a CNC machined finish enables you to process higher volumes in considerably less time. One such provider who specializes in precision miniature extrusions is Minalex, with operations in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey.
(Whitehouse, NJ. March 2019) The experience, credentials, and precision capabilities necessary to create a military-grade miniature aluminum extrusion is much like the demanding standards a U.S. Army sniper is held to: Total commitment and focus, performance at the highest levels, proven results, and nothing less than complete and successful results.
Minalex, an ITAR certified custom aluminum extrusion company in New Jersey, produces MIL-Spec parts for a variety of armed forces applications every day. From picatinny rails & scope rings to radiator core tubes for battle tanks, their ability to create extrusions with +/- 0.001” tolerances is essential to the army sniper’s ability to be accurate.
In carrying out its mission of keeping American borders secure and its people safe, the U.S. Military relies on its aircraft and land vehicles to operate safely, reliably and with maximum efficacy.

But the fact is that Minalex aluminum extrusions are at work every day doing their very small part (no pun intended) to keep America safe.

Perhaps the first person to truly appreciate and understand the full potential of aluminum in the aerospace industry was the great writer Jules Verne. Published in 1865, his novel Journey to the Moon included a detailed description of an aluminum rocket. In the intervening century and a half, the advancement of aircraft and aerospace technology can be directly tied to the advancement and production of aluminum and aluminum alloys. From the Wright brothers’ use of aluminum in their first biplane to NASA’s use of an aluminum alloy in the Orion spacecraft, lightweight aluminum has helped make it possible for mankind to fly both around the world and send spacecraft to probe the most distant reaches of space.
