Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) and ET Foundation are hosting the 2019 Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition and invite participation by students worldwide.
The Aluminum Extrusion Design Competition is intended to enlighten students and engineering, design, and architecture professionals about aluminum extrusions’ superior advantages and many applications.
Awards for the 2019 competition total at $8,500, of which $3,000 are reserved for the First Place winning design. One Second Place, Third Place and Sustainable Design Award will also be announced.
Designers and engineers are challenged to think about aluminum extrusions as a holistic solution to a design problem by creating a product or system that includes at least one extruded aluminum component. Think beyond the ordinary to come up with unique and resourceful uses for aluminum extrusion.
The submitted design must be original and make use of at least one extruded aluminum component.
Winning designs will be those that best demonstrate the benefits of aluminum extrusions – whether by inventing a new product or improving an existing one.
The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) – founded in 1950 – is an international association and dedicated to helping manufacturers, engineers, architects, and others to discover why aluminum extrusion is the preferred material process for better products. AEC created The Extrusion Technology for Aluminum Profiles Foundation (ET Foundation) to develop, promote, provide, and fund education and research related to aluminum extrusion processes and technologies, as well as to further encourage interest in the field.
