ABSTRACT—The Aluminum Extruders Council’s (AEC) Die Committee continually evaluates and
advances the tools necessary to train an employee in correct die design, measuring, handling, and
modification, as well as all the processes surrounding the need to produce an aluminum extrusion in the
most cost effective and profitable manner. This paper discusses the developments of these training tools,
as well as the plethora of delivery methods available.
