Profile Team Tackles Complex Encapsulation
Once again, the team at Profile Plastics has risen to the challenge for a customer. Drawing on our experience in extruding profiles that include a variety of embedded components, we recently completed the development of a profile which integrates shaped wire.
New extruder expands capacity and capability
The latest addition to our facility is a 4 1/2” MPM extruder. Exemplary of our commitment to support our customers, this line was added specifically to support the growing needs of our customers.
Acrylic Optical Fiber Successfully Processed
Profile Plastics has added acrylic optical fiber to its list of components that can be encapsulated in its extrusions. This work was a particular challenge given that our customer needed the fiber extruded inside a material with processing temperatures 100F in excess of the melting temperature of the fiber, and 200F above the maximum service temperature of the fiber while preserving the optical properties.
Profile Plastics Adds 3-Axis CNC Routing Capability
Profile recently purchased a 3-axis CNC router capable of performing complex fabrication operations. This further adds to our ability to provide our customers added value in their parts
