R&D / Tooling department
Injextru Plastics has an experienced R & D team of engineers who can help and advise you from the beginning.Starting from your concept their task consists in translating your ideas into an economically achievable and technically feasible profile; we also take into account the eventual parts involved with the profile in its application.
To start with: the drawing of the profile: junction points, wall thickness, internal structures, weight, etc... are analysed in depth and checked towards the application field of your future profile.
Next step: choosing the right raw material: dependent of inside or outside use of the profile, range of temperatures of the profile application, expected material strength dependent of forces to which the profile will be submitted.
Finally: the packaging: the most economical and suitable packaging in order to avoid deformation and keep the logistic costs as low as possible.
When all these aspects on R & D level are cleared, our team can start working on the tool concept and draw the right extrusion die and calibre (the 2 main components of an extrusion mould).
Injextru Plastics has its own tooling department allowing us to manufacture the moulds in our plant. We are using CAD-CAM technology and high precision CNC machinery to realise dies and calibres with a very high accuracy.Once the mould is ready it will have a test run under supervision of one of our R & D engineers. This test run gives us the possibility to check for eventual corrections that would be necessary; in that case the mould returns immediately to the workshop for correction and finishing in order to obtain a tool that's ready for production.
