Shop Spotlight: Superior Metal Shapes

Superior Metal Shapes Inc., has been extruding tight tolerance aluminum products since 1989 for aviation customers, automotive, aerospace, defense, electronics, firearms, medical, and consumer products.

Superior Metal Shapes is a manufacturer of precision micro aluminum extrusions meeting tight tolerances in difficult shapes. Superior Metal Shapes is AS 9100 and ISO 9001 certified.

While specializing in tight tolerances and difficult shapes, Superior Metal Shapes said on its website, “We provide fast, cost effective and accurate extrusions.”

Superior Metal Shapes Inc., is located at 4730 Eucalyptus Ave., Chino, California. It is a family-owned and operated business founded to manufacture micro aluminum extrusions with machine tolerances, in a 65,000-square-foot building.

Superior Metal Shapes offers CNC machining to hit the customer‘s tolerances.

“We serve all our customers with a level of quality assurance and customer support that satisfies our most demanding customers in the manufacturing industry,” Superior Metal said.

Superior Metal Shapes provides tolerances to within .001-inch, depending on the shape. It works in hard aluminum alloys, including 2014, 2024, and 7075, as well as soft alloys, such as 6061 and 6063.

Superior Metal Shapes extrudes those alloys into tight tolerance parts with hollow or multi-void hollow shapes, as well as shapes as light as .015 pounds per linear foot. It offers 24-hour quote time and state of the art equipment.

Superior Metal Shapes uses its CNC machining department to finish its extrusions to specific customer tolerances, if necessary. It can saw to within +/- .002-inch, miter cut, deburr, finish and prototype parts. Careful design and collaboration with customers allows Superior Metal Shapes to extrude the parts to near-net shape. That leaves less finished-machining, which saves money and material.

In-house finishing processes include in-house buffing and in-house line graining. It works with partners to provide painting, anodizing, chem-film, stain clear, and scotch bright.

“We partner with certified outside anodizing companies and arrange your finishing requirements then quality certify, package and ship to you,” Superior Metal Shapes said on its website. “Worry & Hassle Free.”
