Industrial Profiles and Tubes

Industrial Profiles and Tubes

Ensinger demonstrates a high degree of excellence in engineering pro­files and special tubes from technical plastics for industrial ap­pli­ca­tions, with geometries and materials precisely tuned to the specific application. Profiles and tubes are manufactures with pressure and temperature-regulated ex­trusion. This is a continous production pro­cess in which plastics are plastified in an extruder and then forced at pressure through a spe­cial­ly shaped die.

Profiles

Ensinger produces profiles using the extrusion and co-extrusion method. For example full profiles, hollow chamber profiles and particularly thin-walled profiles with wall thicknesses of 0.4 to 0.5 mm made of materials specially adapted to the application in question. Thermoplastic polymers are used as a basis which can be reinforced with carbon or aramid fibre, or dry lubricated. Using the co-extrusion method, reinforcing agents such as metals can be integrated, plastics with varying characteristics can bei connected by means of sheathing, or hard-soft connections produced, for example for sealing lips. Piece length variations, special packaging requirements and general tolerances in line with DIN 16941 are all possible in agreement with the customer.

Tubes

Due to many years of experience and enormous production know-how, Ensinger is capable of producing tubes with minimal diameters of 2 and 3 mm up tomaximum diameter of 90 mm. Any graduation of wall thickness is possible from 0.3 up to 20 mm.

Here, too, extremely narrow tolerances can be implemented in agreement with the customer. Benefits such as low tooling costs, low batch sizes and varying lengths offer even greater flexibility and lower-cost solutions.
