AEC Announces 2006 Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition

The Aluminum Extrusion Technology for Aluminum Profiles Foundation (ET Foundation) has announced plans for the 2006 International Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition. The competition's goal is to promote the understanding and use of extruded aluminum profiles, as well as to highlight innovations and recognize excellence in aluminum extrusion design.

Aluminum extruders, professional designers, engineers and manufacturers of aluminum extruded products, as well as students studying design and engineering, are eligible to enter. Professional entries will be grouped by definition of end product in various categories; students will compete in their own separate category, regardless of the end product. Winning entries will demonstrate the benefits of aluminum extrusions, and can either be a completely new product or an improved existing product that achieves the following objectives: ease of fabrication and assembly, cost-effectiveness, innovation, new application capability, customization, close tolerances, improvement of extrusion processes and likelihood of market success.

Entry deadline will be in February 2006.
