When extruding an aluminium profile, a section of an aluminium billet is pressed with great force through a steel die. The openings made in this die, define the shape of the profile which is produced. The complexity and feasibility of a profile depends mainly on:

When the profiles come out of the extrusion press, they undergo various treatments such as cooling, stretching, sawing, stress relieving heat treatment and wrapping. A surface treatment often follows, as the final application of an aluminium profile often also serves an optical purpose. This happens mostly by anodising or powder coating the profile.
