Wire Erosion Of Tooling For Plastic Extrusions

In addition to its fully equipped tool room that makes tooling for a wide range of thermoplastic extrusions, D W Plastics has wire erosion facilities which enable the development team to keep a tighter control on the manufacture of the dies and formers for our customers’ plastic extrusion tooling requirements.

The in-house tool making facilities and our skilled engineers allow us to provide comprehensive tool production and maintenance services. Dies are designed, engineered and optimised on site for the manufacture of accurate, high-quality, bespoke PVC extrusions and UPVC profiles in our factory.

Profile dies are wire eroded from high chrome steel to ensure high-quality tooling for production of plastic extrusions and to preserve their longevity for repeat orders.

Having the machine operated by in-house engineers ensures that tooling is made to D W Plastics’ high-quality standards and helps to expedite the production of the dies for the bespoke plastic profiles. This is beneficial in that it also allows us to keep a tighter control over the quality of the extrusion manufacture and keeps the tooling costs competitive for our customers.

COVID-19 Update

We have remained operational all through the lockdown period 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 our priority, so from the outset we have been following Government advice and Public Health Guidelines with respect to making the workplace ‘COVID-19 secure’ to limit potential exposure to and mitigate the spread of the virus. We have been reviewing safety measures continuously to ensure operations can continue with the necessary safeguards. We are therefore working at a reduced capacity and as many of our employees as possible are still working from home. Despite these changes, you can still contact us during normal working hours via the usual channels and details are available on the contact page of our website. We will answer as soon as possible, but please bear with us should it take slightly longer than usual for us to respond.

We are constantly reviewing the situation based on UK Government advice and will keep you informed as things change.
