Plastic extrusion is the lowest cost and highest volume plastic production process.
Used primarily for pipes, tubes, insulations, doors, windows and blinds, it makes large low cost parts efficiently. Plastics are natural insulators and using plastic extrusion can create flexible materials ideal for electronic and wire casings.
Why use multi-sensor measurement for extruded parts?
Preserve part quality
Extruded parts often have delicate or sensitive surfaces that can be easily scratched, dented or deformed so non-contact helps to preserve the surface integrity and finish of the part, ensuring that it meets quality standards.
Conquer complex parts
Often complex shapes with intricate details, multi-sensor measurement can capture complex geometries, ensuring precise dimensional analysis and quality control without the need for multiple probe adjustments or repositioning.
Rapidly capture data from the entire surface of an extruded part, including multiple features and dimensions, in a single scan or measurement cycle. This significantly reduces inspection time and increases overall throughput.
Certify your parts
During the extrusion process, the plastic can expand significantly changing the product size and specifications. Engineers also have difficulty predicting how much this changes, and thus allowing for this in the design, specifications and tolerancing. Ideal for measuring the medium tolerances required by plastic extrusion, and perhaps more importantly, perfect for measuring parts in bulk, OGP measuring machines are the best way to certify size and spec in quality control.
