How is 6061 Aluminum Flat Bar Manufactured?

Aluminum 6061 flat bar is generally manufactured through the process of extrusion. In extrusion, aluminum 6061 flat bar is produced by pushing the material through a pressurized die. As the aluminum is pushed through the pressure filled die, it is processed into a rectangular bar shape that can then be used for a wide range of 6061 aluminum applications.
