Steel v. Aluminum, Bout of the Century

In an ever-changing business landscape, it can be difficult to make choice for the long term. You wouldn’t want the first place you put your fancy new furniture to be its place forever, would you?

No, the layout and overall décor of your living room may change farther down the road, so you’d want to ensure that the new piece of furniture you’re purchasing is flexible with the room. Now what if we left your comfy living room and took that same mentality to your industrial workspace. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that same luxury, flexibility, at work?

Well ask no more, because IDM has the solution; Aluminum Extrusion.

When compared to steel, extruded aluminum has much in common; it can be cut to length, assembled on the job and provides a sturdy framework for your machinery. This puts aluminum on the same foundation as its competition, steel, even though it is truly in a league of its own. Its class is defined by three key factors:

  • Modular Design
  • Light-weight Build
  • Tons of Accessories

Extruded Aluminum is the solution to much of your drive related needs, while matching its competitor in nearly every aspect. Its light-weight design saves on machine costs, as well as assembly and transportation making it a far more cost-effective option.

Its modular design also means that adjustments can be made on the fly, on site. This means if any machinery changes on the job, a whole new piece is unnecessary. There’s no need to purchase an all-new hard-guard if all you need is eight extra inches. Order a new piece of aluminum, then reassemble. This saves you time and money, all without creating waste.

Finally, if extruded aluminum’s feather-light versatility isn’t enough, we have more than a few accessories to change your mind. Creating more tools for your work place has never been easier with aluminum extrusion.

Pieces are built tough and meant to last, all under your supervision. If you have an idea, we can bring it to life. Computer desks, rolling carts and more are all possible by using aluminum extrusion as a base, and the results will amaze you. (Hyperlink to a good video of some of our fun stuff.)

Ultimately when it comes to your framework, the choice is yours, though in this case, the choice should be easy. Only aluminum extrusion offers the lightweight, modular build to house your workplace’s needs and creativity.
