Custom Aluminum Fabrication
At Iowa Aluminum, we work hard to meet our customers’ needs. That’s why we offer custom aluminum fabrication for the automotive, commercial, sporting goods, and industrial sectors, and adhere to a wide range of industry standards. Working with 6000 series aluminum, the company offers fabrication methods, including:
- Cutting and drilling
- Mitering and dual mitering
- Punching and slotting
- Tapping and tumbling
Whether you have quality problems, delivery problems, an order no one wants to extrude, or an order that you wish to have delivered in a short period of time, Iowa Aluminum can meet or exceed your special requirements.
We extrude to Aluminum Association and ASTM Standards, however, requesting less than standard is always a negotiable factor.
With products ranging from automotive components to office furniture, Iowa Aluminum only uses state-of the art equipment to enable the company to accommodate a range of thicknesses, lengths, widths, and weight. Iowa Aluminum hold a +/- .005 cutting tolerance and a +/- .015 machining tolerance, and are happy to offer anodizing, painting, and powder coating as secondary services.

Press-1 –1850-Ton Extrusion Press/Line – primarily used for thin wall shapes down to .050″ and small production orders down to 1000 pounds that most extruders shy away from. However, when required, heavier wall shapes and larger production orders are produced, which provides Iowa Aluminum the diversity needed to meet customer demands.
Press-2: 2600-Ton Extrusion Press/Line – primarily used for larger wall shapes, up to 12 inch and production orders that allow Iowa Aluminum to become much more diversified in meeting customer requirements and enhancing their extrusion capabilities. Adequate quenching from air fans and water provide the ability to meet mechanical properties of 6000 series of alloys.
