What is Plastic Extrusion?
Plastic Extrusion is a common process for producing high volume, low cost plastic parts of continuous geometry. Plastic pellets are melted and pushed through a die to produce a continuous profile which can then be cut to size, milled or machined to produce the final product.
ADVANTAGES OF EXTRUSION
Plastic extrusion provides a low cost solution for parts which have a continuous profile. Plastic extrusion allows for:
High volume orders at lower production costs than other traditional methods.
Flexibility in design - both complex or simple profiles possible.
Tight tolerances on small and large parts.
Coextrusion to improve strength and wear resistance.
Plastic extrusions can also be readily cut, shaped and formed to the part's final geometry through a variety of post processing methods.
