As most of our profiles are bespoke the majority of our tools are owned by customers; however, we also have our own extensive range of standard tooling. All tooling is fully insured and maintained on site.
Colour and other options:
Profiles can be supplied in a variety of colours with the option of an added fungicide agent. For flexible extrusions there are the options of an added lubricant to ease fitting as well as the incorporation of a non-stretch cord.
Investment in an ink-jet printer allows printing in-line on most flexible and rigid materials. This aids product identification, traceability and conveying a message whether an instruction or purely advertising a brand.
Self adhesive tapes:
Double sided self adhesive tapes of various widths can be applied to profiles, both flexibles and rigid, whilst in-line. This prevents any contamination that may occur from the handling of the self adhesive tapes and provides a valuable fitting aid.
Cut to length:
All profiles, whether rigid or flexible, can be cut in-line to the customer's required lengths using latest cutting equipment designs in automated fly-knives, hot-knives and automated saws.
Any work required to extrusions as a secondary operation e.g. notching, drilling, or out of line cutting where tight tolerances are required can be discussed as it is often diverse and specific to the customer.
A label printing machine is used to print all packaging labels to distinguish products. Barcodes can be incorporated and for that extra personalised touch can be configured to include your company logo. This is particularly advantageous in avoiding the need to re-package when selling the goods on.
ISO 9001 Accreditation:
The experience gained over many years is applied to our tool making to ensure the smooth running of bulk production. All procedures meet BS EN ISO 9001:2008 for both designs and manufacture assuring our products are manufactured to a high standard. During production, finish, fit and tolerances are closely monitored and, where possible gauges are used to enhance and ensure adherence to specification. This all contributes to the assured quality of our finished goods.
