Extrusion technology

Extrusion is usually a fully automated process with continuous dimension checks and automatic machine adjustment. This makes it possible to manufacture a wide variety of products from simple tubes and rods to extremely complex window profiles. Extrusion also enables the manufacture of very large products. 

In many cases, co-extrusion – manufacturing with different types of plastic – is the optimum solution, for instance in the manufacture of glazing strips with integrated sealing strips. The plastic can also be extruded around other products, such as conducting or stabilising materials.

As an extension of the extrusion process, Primo can perform a variety of finishing work on plastic products. These include in-line machining, for instance, for the application of film, printing of barcodes, bending, etc. Finishing work can also include drilling, folding, welding, gluing and more. 

Primo is also rapidly becoming a resource centre for pultrusion technology and expertise.
