A manufacturer of construction supplies contracted Lerner Molded Plastics to provide the precision extrusion services for the strap anchor roller highlighted here. This plastic extrusion was made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and extruded on our 25mm, single screw extruder. This advanced equipment produces precision extrusions to tolerances of ±.005″, with high volume capabilities.
Working to the customer supplied drawings, which called out dimensions of 71mm (+0/-4) in length, an outside diameter of 15mm, an inside diameter of 12mm, with a volume of 4.5 cm3, and a smooth finish. Prior to production the customer was supplied with first article samples as well as all applicable documentation, per PPAP.
Our ability to manufacture high quality, cost effective extruded component has allowed us to develop long term customer relationships. This particular example represents quantities of 100,000 pieces per year.
