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 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.
PLASTIC EXTRUSIONS SKINNING TECHNOLOGY – Need a premium finish or premium performance but not the premium price! PAL Extrusions now offer a type of co-extrusion that allows the skinning of a lower grade polymer with more advanced grade polymer. Applications for this technology include the skinning of recycled plastics with virgin grade polymers, creating enhanced aesthetic appearances and extra performance. The simplest benefit could be to skin a white compound with a more expensive colour reducing the overall cost. PAL Extrusions use this technology where products meet demanding environments such as components manufactured for its Fensys range, where applications are outdoors and UV resistance is an important feature. The wide reaching benefits of this extrusion technology will no doubt find its place in many markets and plastics applications over the next few years.
Last Sunday the PAL Group were proud to sponsor local cheerleading group ‘Cheer Angels’.
