From General Magnaplate Corporation
A leading custom profile extruder of plastics attains flawless surface finish quality while doubling die life and increasing productivity by the application of unique, steel-hard coatings to its aluminum extrusion dies.
Its nine extruders produce hundreds of shapes of various thicknesses and lengths in some 20 different plastics. Extrusions range from 1/4" to 14" wide and up to 10"; in diameter. For this variety of shapes about 150 new sizing blocks are designed each year. A typical extruder runs a different die each day for a different product run.
Consistent high quality is the overriding theme pervading their varied production. Top product quality reflects both the company's own high standards and the esthetics of profiles demanded by its customers. The company provides these extrusions to the likes of IBM and Kodak and represent a broad spectrum of industries, ranging from automotive to electronics to point-of-purchase displays.
