Custom Plastic Profile Extrusion Die Design

With over 65 years of experience in custom profile extrusion, our team of plastic profile tooling and design engineers are qualified to help you design a profile that not only meets your needs but allows us to provide you with the best cost solution. Northland Plastics has developed over 4000 profiles since 1953 and we’re eager to assist you in designing a custom plastic profile extrusion for your application. Our focus is on state-of-the-art design and continuous improvement, which aligns with our extensive history of producing quality parts at competitive prices. There are many things to consider during the design process, and our engineers ask the right questions to ensure the finished profile meets your performance requirements. We’ve helped countless customers improve or re-design new and existing parts to increase quality and repeatability as well as reduce costs.

Plastic Material Selection & Engineering Support

In addition to helping design your part we can assist you in selecting the appropriate material. There are many thermoplastic compounds available, and choosing the best one for an application can be difficult. Our experienced staff and qualified supply base have the experience and resources necessary to assist you in selecting the best material for the job. We pride ourselves in finding creative cost saving solutions, and alternate materials are one way we’ve provided cost savings while still maintaining all design and engineering characteristics required for the extruded part.

Engineering Successful Plastic Alternatives to Wood, Metal & Rubber

Many of our customers work with us to convert existing products in metal, wood and rubber to plastic extruded profiles. Our engineering and design team works with each client  to not only realize significant cost savings by switching to plastic extrusions, but to help design a replacement part meeting all of the same physical specifications and requirements.

Plastic Profile Tooling Made In-House

All extrusion, vacuum calibration and fabrication tooling is designed by our engineers at our vertically integrated facility. Tooling is then built in-house using our wire EDM CNC machining centers. We have a full machine shop which yields the precision streamline tools needed to deliver high quality parts and repeatable processes. Designing and producing all tooling internally shortens lead times and eliminates reliance on outside manufacturing. We believe the greatest results start with proper tooling. Having complete control over the plastic profile tooling and extrusion die process allows us to be both nimble and robust in our design and execution of plastic fabrication.
