Smart design without concessions
MIFA's core business is co-engineering and precision extrusion of custom profiles in aluminium and magnesium alloys. Our high-tech precision extrusion technology offers unprecedented design freedom that cannot be achieved in other manufacturing techniques.
We open up a whole new universe of creative ideas & smart solutions to designers and mechanical engineers. Together we search for the optimal balance between functionality and manufacturability in your design. You are always assured of the best, or even a better functional product design at the best total cost. Moreover, we can process your profile in-house into a fully finished precision product, including assembly and surface treatments.

Precision extrusion tolerances (from ±0,02 mm)
The standard tolerances on dimensions for extrusion profiles, depending on the chosen alloy and required level of precision, can be found in norms EN755-9 and EN12020-2. Here you will find minimum tolerances starting from respectively ± 0,4 mm and ± 0,2 mm. For precision applications this level of accuracy is certainly not sufficient and additional machining operations are required.
MIFA is able to extrude ten times more accurately than the standard norms. We enable tolerances from ± 0.02 mm directly in the extrusion process. Additional and costly machining operations can be reduced to an absolute minimum or even to zero. Fitting dimensions such as h10 or H10 are also possible directly in your extruded profile.
