Amongst other things the extrusion process requires a mould and a number of cooling reservoirs. These are tailored to the exact requirements of the profile and change with every change in geometry. These unique tools and equipment are essential to the production process and are designed and manufactured at Meldon at its on-site tooling facilities.
For the development and conversion of these profile-specific tools and cooling reservoirs Meldon uses state-of-the-art software and equipment, i.e. CAD-CAM, work stations, CNC wire erosion machines, CNC milling centre, digitally controlled test facilities, etc.
The know-how obtained from the on-site tooling facilities enables Meldon to significantly influence and improve the through-put time, the versatility and the quality of the profile.
