Designing quality plastic extrusions

Our ability to supply high quantity plastic extrusions starts at the design stage. Designing a product that suits the extrusion process is key when it comes to our ability to constantly supply and manufacture products with critical dimensions. Understanding factors such as the differential cooling ‘the effects of uneven cooling during the extrusion process’ and explaining these to our customers keeps us and our customers at the top of our game.

Shadow graph technology

Whilst we pride ourselves upon our ability to design and manufacture complex plastics extrusions, the quality of a product is very much dependent upon in process quality controls, procedures and checks. Flexible profiles can be very difficult to measure, as part of our manufacturing process we utilise shadow graph technology to enlarge and inspect critical dimensions ensuring the flexible extrusions we supply are of the highest quality.

The extrusion process – adding adhesive tape

Many of our plastic extrusions can be manufactured with one or more lines of adhesive tape being added in line with the extrusion process. Applying the tape as part of the extrusion process avoids the time and cost of adding tape at a later date. Working together PAL Extrusions can offer expertise on plastic extrusion design whilst our adhesive tapes division ‘PAL Adhesive Products’ can offer technical advise on the correct tape for your application.

TOOLING DESIGN AND PRODUCTION

TOOLING DESIGN AND PRODUCTION FACILLTY – As many manufacturing sectors de-skill and turn to out side sources for technical projects, the PAL Group continues to invest in its state of the art in house extrusion tooling design and production facility. Designing and manufacturing our own tooling allows us to invest that little extra on tool quality, line speed and custom details such as co-extrusion. All of our tools are made to the highest standard and not just to a budget. The Benefits of high product quality, long life tooling and faster production speeds are then enjoyed by us and our customers alike. We take pride in the high quality of the products that we produce making it essential that our plastic extrusion tooling is also of high quality and well designed. Our technical expertise often leaves us without competition where the extra time taken to develop and produce high specification tooling puts us in the position of being market innovators and leaders.

TOURING CARAVAN PROFILES

TOURING CARAVAN PROFILES PLASTIC EXTRUSION DESIGN – Years of experience has taught us to listen to our customers and in doing so we have created many industry leading designs. Designs such as these extruded touring caravan locker profiles, this project needed to combine market leading aesthetic design whilst delivering a weight saving that would allow the caravan manufacturer to add luxuries such as air conditioning into the caravans. The completed design not only for filed the brief but also produced an over all cost down by using less material than its predecessor and time saved on assembly. Rigid PVC, metallic polymers and paper wrap wood grain finishes were all included to produce these market leading extruded profiles.
