One very common question in profile extrusion is what tolerance can you hold?
Tool design and cooling methods are very important when considering the material being used and your desired tolerances. The tightest tolerances are usually maintained using a streamlined die with vacuum calibration.
We believe it's important to review and agree on tolerances with our customers prior to actual design and construction of your tool. We want to understand the fit and function of your final product so we can discuss why the tolerances are important.
Questions about the length tolerance are also common. This tolerance is determined by many factors that may include:
- Material used to produce your profile
- The environment in where your final product will be used
- The function of your profile
- The geometry of your profile
As with profile tolerances, length tolerances are very important and should be discussed early in your project to confirm that the quoted cutting method is acceptable and no secondary operations will be required.
Not only do we have some of the best engineers and tool makers in the industry, we also take pride in building strong relationships with our customers and strive for their success.
