How much does Aluminium Extrusion cost?

Aluminium extrusion tools can cost from £500, often £2000, and as high as £5000. Part costs largely depend on part weight and any additional secondary processes like machining and anodising.

How much does Aluminium Extrusion cost?


Extruded aluminium is a manufacturing process where aluminium is forced at high pressure through a die designed to create the desired cross-section. The major advantages of producing custom aluminium extrusions are the ability to create complex profiles that are cost effective and metres in length.

If you want to know more about custom aluminium extrusions, read our Aluminium Extrusion Guide.

Aluminium Extrusion Costs

400x110x75 Aluminium Extrusion (Annotated)

Extrusion dimensions: 110mm width, 76mm height and 400mm length.
This aluminium extrusion could be considered large. So smaller extrusions would have a much lower tooling cost, and significant cost reduction per meter.

The mould complexity is the main point to determine the cost of aluminium extrusions. There is also a limit to how low the unit price can get by increasing the quantity. Raw material costs are 90% of the raw extrusion cost. So market changes in commodity prices can make prices volatile.
For this part, the Aluminium extrusion price ranges from £48 to £34 without any further finishing.
