CUSTOM-MADE PRODUCTS

Custom plastic profiles

Unique ideas and requirements call for custom-made solutions. Are you looking for a custom-made solution? TimaFlex develops and produces custom-built plastic profiles. Do you already have a design sketch? Come visit us and we will transform your sketch into a definitive design. TimaFlex supplies custom-made solutions from start to finish, with a fast, efficient supply chain. Learn more about our dedicated approach.

Materials and equipment

TimaFlex single-handedly designs and develops its own extrusion equipment, cooling reservoirs and auxiliary equipment. This enables us to make profiles from a wide range of plastics, including ABS, bio-based and compostable plastics, LDPE, MDPE, HDPE, PA, PP, glass-reinforced PP (even up to 60%), PPS, PS (and HIPS), TPE, TPV. In any colour of your choice, clipped or sawed with length tolerances of less than 0.3 mm.

Calculating costs: A step-by-step plan

TimaFlex always strives to achieve the most viable and affordable design. In 3 steps, we create a quote for your custom-made product:

Geometry

Send us your blueprint or the sketch of an idea. Together, we will work out the exact dimensions of your profile and create a definitive blueprint.

Choosing materials

Once the geometry of the profile is on paper, we choose which material to extrude. The choice of material depends on a number of factors:

  • hardness and elasticity
  • UV- and weather-resistance
  • flame-retardant or flame-extinguishing properties
  • colour
  • antibacterial properties
  • antistatic properties
  • chemical resistance
  • degree of food contact
  • impact resistance
  • temperature resistance
  • diffusion density
  • user of recycled plastics

Quantity

Profiles are extruded in metres of length at a time. The one-off start-up of the production process costs energy, time and materials. That means the more metres you order, the more efficient the process is. This is why it is important to set the desired quantity in advance.

Developing unique equipment

Developing unique equipment

Each unique extrusion process requires a one-of-a-kind die and cooling reservoir. Based on the geometry, choice of material and production quantity, TimaFlex designs a special die and cooling reservoir. Once the equipment has been defined, we can determine the costs.
