Pre-bending cassettes are essential at the start of any extrusion line for rigid, metal-reinforced profiles. The reinforcements are bent over several steps. Pre-bending cassettes are always designed differently to cover various reinforcement materials and shapes.
A robust cassette frame, simple servicing and easy pulley change are clear advantages for fully-automated production.
AHAtech’s engineering department has valuable experience and the machines necessary to manufacture extruder matrices from customer-supplied drawings. Many types of extruder matrices exist, including for both reinforced and non-reinforced profiles. There is a single profile to cover different mixtures and hardnesses and for any shape seal.
AHAtech manufactures a complete prototype based on customer-supplied drawings and mass produces either the entire mould or a part of it. The engineering department has the know-how from having worked for many years with injection moulds for the rubber and plastics industries.
AHAtech’s design department has many years of experience designing and producing prototype tools and fixtures, with the tools intended for producing predominantly automotive seals.
Generally, they are used to match the length and shape of cuts when an automotive prototype is readied, yet prototype tools can also be used in a number of sectors where mass production reaches thousands of units per year. These tools are essential for preparing prototype parts and removing defects from them.
AHAtech provides complete manufacturing of various-type measuring templates, ranging from the design to the actual production of them. Measuring templates check whether a product’s dimensions are correct either in the prototype phase or during mass production.
A simple mechanism for adjusting stops makes any checking of length and shape accurate and efficient. AHAtech can even produce templates from customer-engineered drawings.
