Plastic Extrusion Design

Our technical team is here to understand customer requirements and use its specialist expertise and in-depth industry knowledge to find satisfactory solutions in plastic extrusion design. As respected plastic manufacturers, our bespoke plastic extrusion service is available to suit any requirement.

D W Plastics has a fully integrated computer-aided design system (CAD) that enables us to offer our customers a full plastic profile design service. Our services are offered to all customers who seek to optimise existing plastic extrusion products or the development of new, standard and non-standard PVC product lines.

Our technical design engineering team works closely with customers on the design and prototyping of new plastic extrusion profiles and uses its extensive design knowledge, experience and the latest computer-aided technology to produce die drawings for the manufacture of tooling. Technical drawings can be printed or exchanged electronically, in DXF or AutoCAD file format. Close attention to detail during the design phase of the PVC extrusion profile can ensure a reliable supply of cost-effective, good quality plastic extrusions.

As part of our product development service, D W Plastics can offer 3D printing of samples for prototyping and/or trialling. In certain cases 3D rapid prototyping is an economical method of producing a scale model of the extrusion profile for ‘fit and form’ testing and visualization purposes before finalising the tooling requirement.

Our custom plastic extrusion services, in-house tooling and extrusion manufacturing equipment permit us to control the production process from start to finish. This ensures shorter production lead times, cost-effective solutions and maintenance of our high quality standards to provide our customers with the best, most efficient service.

COVID-19 Update

During these uncertain times caused by the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we would just like to inform you that we have taken the decision to keep our operations open for as long as possible to continue to supply our customers, some of which are key essential suppliers to the NHS and pharmaceutical sectors.

The welfare of our workforce and the wider community is extremely important to us, so we have instigated additional measures to restrict potential exposure to and mitigate the spread of the virus. As many of our employees as possible are now working from home, and we are following Government advice and Public Health Guidelines with respect to safe working practices by increasing cleaning regimes within our facilities and implementing social distancing rules for our manufacturing operations.

We will constantly review the situation based on UK Government advice over the coming weeks and will keep you informed as things change.
