RPM Industries LLC

Plastic Extrusion

RPM Industries produces custom profile plastic extrusions in various widths and sizes. We specialize in complex extruded plastic shapes and tubing in rigid, flexible and co-extruded plastic. We also offer various secondary operations to include punching, notching, holes, slots, and tape application.

The plastic extrusion process encompasses manufacturing linear specialized shapes or cross-sections by means of melting plastic and introducing heat, pressure, and cooling to produce a semi-liquid plastic forced through a die, and then shaped and cooled to produce specialized parts and tubing.

RPM Industries approaches each customer project with a high level of design review to assure our customer expectations are met. RPM Industries provides a complete review from proposed material selection, design concept of part through all aspects of the proposed manufacturing method to include initial die design concept, part sizing concept, cooling method and review of possible QA concerns. Mating parts and drawings of mating parts are often requested from our customers to perform mating part overlays and tolerance stacking, this allows us to set form fit function guidelines.
