Custom Profile Extrusion Basics

Custom profile extrusion is a unique category of extrusion processing.

We produce an endless variety of shapes to be used as component parts or as finished goods in a large array of applications and industries. Some of these shapes are simple and some are very complex. Since extrusion is a continuous process, parts can be extruded to any desired length.

Profile extrusions can be made from strong rigid materials or from soft flexible materials to form countless shapes to be used in a variety of industries. Co-extrusion allows two or more different materials to be combined in a single extrusion, providing multiple functions in one part.

A typical plastic extrusion project involves working with our customer's design or designing a profile with our customer based on their requirements. During an extrusion project, we may suggest changes to keep the part as economical as possible. We also strive for an understanding of the function of the plastic extrusion. The better we understand the part, the better job we can do assuring the custom plastic extrusion will meet the specifications and perform as expected.

Typically, an engineering charge to design and build the tool is required. To keep the engineering charge as low as possible, we maintain an assortment of adapters and transition plates that can be used with different profiles. Once our customer has paid an engineering charge, they have exclusive rights of their tool. We will not use your tool for other customers.
