We manufacture our industrial profiles by means of the extrusion process. Using this manufacturing process we produce articles that satisfy the most stringent demands regarding quality and material reliability. The high degree of competence and experience of our employees, gained over many years, are a further guarantee for the excellent of the final products.
The extrusion process may be explained in a simplified form as follows:
The granulate of PMMA, PC or another technical plastic is first heated in the extruder and then continuously pressed through a nozzle (die). The profile shape dictated by the nozzle is then stamped to specified dimensions in the downstream calibration process. The resulting profile section is then fed through a cooling bath and then via the extractor to downstream units, which perform cutting or stamping functions for example.
