Our plastic profile extrusion manufacturing process creates ongoing, uniform, two-dimensional, cross-sectional consistency with a range of materials and specifications.
This process includes:
Thermoplastic raw material comes in pre-compounded pellet form.
Electrical and frictional heat within the extruder softens the plastic as it is continuously pushed forward through the die tool opening. The die opening begins the process of shaping the plastic extrudate into the finished part.
The plastic is further sized and cooled to the desired shape while being pulled downstream to ultimately be spooled or cut to length.
Sizing and cooling are critical components of the process. Profile sizing options include traditional air template and vacuum sized or calibration cooling systems.
Where volume justified, value-added operations are incorporated downstream between the sizing and cutting stages.
