Over the years we’ve created countless industrial solutions from aluminum extrusion, each one custom fit for the customer’s needs. Not trying to date ourselves, but back in ’09 we modified a standard Parker-IPS bracket and turned it into the perfect custom solution.
We were contacted by a document-sorting-machine manufacturer who needed an overhaul on their original frame design and assembly. They contacted us and were paired with our design team in order to truly understand their needs. Within a matter of days, we had identified and created a solution and pitched it to the company.
They loved it.
A few days later the new framing brackets had been cut, assembled and shipped to the manufacturer. These custom frames have been in our wheelhouse ever since.
Parker’s modular t-slot aluminum profile system is the backbone of our aluminum extrusion services and our primary proprietor and aluminum manufacturer. With their materials and our design team the sky’s the limit.

Modular, lightweight and built to last. These are words some of the common words we use here at Innovative IDM to describe extruded aluminum, a high-quality alternative to welded steel.
We love to post about our success stories and cool projects from here at our Dallas-based office, but we figured that some may have a few more questions about aluminum extrusion. Not to worry, our in-house expert, Adam Ring sat down with us to discuss the ins and outs of extruded aluminum. Be sure to watch the webinar above!
We tout that aluminum extrusion is as strong, if not stronger, than steel. It’s light-weight profile and modular build makes it the obvious choice for your heavy-duty industrial needs.
“But Innovative, they use aluminum to make foil! How tough can it really be?”
It’s easy to understand this misconception, but we’ve put our extruded aluminum to the test. We took our old toaster-oven out to pasture with a rod of extruded aluminum, be sure to check out the carnage below:
In an ever-changing business landscape, it can be difficult to make choice for the long term. You wouldn’t want the first place you put your fancy new furniture to be its place forever, would you?
No, the layout and overall décor of your living room may change farther down the road, so you’d want to ensure that the new piece of furniture you’re purchasing is flexible with the room. Now what if we left your comfy living room and took that same mentality to your industrial workspace. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that same luxury, flexibility, at work?
Well ask no more, because IDM has the solution; Aluminum Extrusion.
When compared to steel, extruded aluminum has much in common; it can be cut to length, assembled on the job and provides a sturdy framework for your machinery. This puts aluminum on the same foundation as its competition, steel, even though it is truly in a league of its own. Its class is defined by three key factors:
- Modular Design
- Light-weight Build
- Tons of Accessories
Extruded Aluminum is the solution to much of your drive related needs, while matching its competitor in nearly every aspect. Its light-weight design saves on machine costs, as well as assembly and transportation making it a far more cost-effective option.
Its modular design also means that adjustments can be made on the fly, on site. This means if any machinery changes on the job, a whole new piece is unnecessary. There’s no need to purchase an all-new hard-guard if all you need is eight extra inches. Order a new piece of aluminum, then reassemble. This saves you time and money, all without creating waste.
Finally, if extruded aluminum’s feather-light versatility isn’t enough, we have more than a few accessories to change your mind. Creating more tools for your work place has never been easier with aluminum extrusion.
Pieces are built tough and meant to last, all under your supervision. If you have an idea, we can bring it to life. Computer desks, rolling carts and more are all possible by using aluminum extrusion as a base, and the results will amaze you. (Hyperlink to a good video of some of our fun stuff.)
Ultimately when it comes to your framework, the choice is yours, though in this case, the choice should be easy. Only aluminum extrusion offers the lightweight, modular build to house your workplace’s needs and creativity.
We believe the best products have to come from the best material. At Innovative-IDM, whether it’s our awesome extrusion crew, or design teams, we believe that it takes the best to make the best; that’s why we get our extruded aluminum from Parker IPS.
The Parker Hannifin Corporation has been our primary extrusion proprietor for more than a decade and we’ve been blown away with the quality of their materials and accessories. Their products are designed and utilized across the world, though they’re originally from Cleveland, Ohio.

Nearly 100 years later, it stands as a Fortune 250 company and has branched into an incredible wealth of fields; including aluminum extrusion.
