Plastic profiles for the lighting industry with integrated solutions
There is no reason to "just" buy a customised, high quality plastic profile when you can get the whole package: At Primo, we always strive to co-create a solution that optimises the design of your product, utilises the material properties of the exact plastic type and compound, incorporates sustainability into the solution, and includes all relevant and possible in-line applications that save time and money in your assembly process. Let us give you a few examples:
Smart designs with lower co2 footprint
Optimised design can mean, for example, lower weight and therefore a lower co2 footprint. We are constantly testing new extrusion technologies and material combinations in our state-of-the-art Technology & Innovation Centre. Much of our material testing involves the reuse of scrap and recycled materials, i.e. waste and scrap that is shredded or pulverised for direct reuse on the production line.
One of the advantages at Primo is our in-house tooling centre. Tooling is a key point in the development of a new profile. Test runs are carried out in close collaboration with the materials specialists and engineers in the Technology & Innovation Centre, and we have dedicated lines for these test runs.
We have the experts and the equipment to manufacture the precision tools needed for production. You will save time and money by letting us handle the entire process from design to production.
Our team of material experts can help you choose the right material for your profiles. Whether you need high performance, durability, or aesthetics, we can find the best option for your application.
Co/tri/quad extrusion can combine different features in a single product, and in the extrusion process we have the ability to add other applications and functionality, such as a prismatic surface, absorber layer for superior UV resistance, sealing lips to improve IP classification, machining of profiles to minimise labour in the assembly phase.
Another feature is the application of protective films (e.g. films with optical properties) to your plastic profiles, adding value and protection to your products.
We can also help you design bespoke packaging, boxes and wraps for your profiles and pack them securely for you. This ensures that your products arrive at their destination in perfect condition. No damage or loss will occur during transport.
All with the aim of improving the quality and efficiency of your production.
The range of plastic profiles for the lighting industry includes busbars, diffusers, protective covers, linear lens profiles and tubes for optimum protection.
The centre focuses on three core areas
Primo will uncover more intelligent production technologies and processes, including increased digitalisation, automation, in-line processes and machine learning, to improve the customer's product, for example, in terms of durability, energy consumption, finishing, tolerances and time-to-market.
Tools & Design
The centre develops strategies that can save our customers and their customers time, money and CO2, and Primo will be able to produce tools with higher precision and create innovative solutions for even more different industries.
Primo's team will carry out development projects with extensive research, especially to optimise material properties, e.g., new variants and combinations that improve the plastic's environmental profile.
