This report is about the design of an aluminium extruded product. The chosen product is an aluminium handrail which incorporates LED technology in order to light a space, as well to display interactive icons or colours according to the situation to help and guide the user. A research on the field of extrusion process and the uses of aluminium was made to explore all the design possibilities. A marketing research was done as well, in order to know what are the companies selling and the current stage of the industry. Material selection was also one of the main points of this report. A comparison between different aluminium alloys was done using graphics provided by SAPA, Ashby Diagrams for different properties and a Finite Element Analysis of the model. After that work, was proved that the design accomplished all the requirements. The design process ends with realistic renders from a 3D CAD model of the product. the report ends by assessing the benefits of the product, the viability of manufacturing and the further work.
