The design and definition of the required shape, or geometric form, is the first step in the proper commercial evaluation of the product. In the case of special profiles which are made to order and are not already available in the wide selection of profiles in our catalog, it is first necessary to perform an initial and quick feasibility survey to find out if we can produce your requested profile in our factories. At this stage, the characteristics required for the manufacture of the profiles are:
- quantities required, also based on the production minimums required for the order, which may vary depending on the complexity of the profiles, any additional machining and the type of material. Typically, for commercial profiles or for simple shapes, the minimum quantities range from 30/40 QL (3,000/4,000 kg), which can be reduced to 20 QL (2,000 kg) for stainless steel profiles and 10 QL for aluminum profiles. For custom profiles, on the other hand, minimum quantities are determined at the price quotation stage;
- any customizations, such as lengths (from 450 mm to 13,000 mm), pitch perforations or identification markings on the product (which can be customized with brands or serial numbers);
- material quality;
- special technical and/or quality requirements.
Once these characteristics have been specified, we then can proceed with an accurate and precise technical study to define the costs of the equipment needed to make the required templates. These costs are at the partial expense of the customer's equipment, which ensures its exclusive use, guarantees confidentiality and, if necessary, the coverage of any patents or copyrights. This means constructing an integral part of composite equipment, together with existing equipment, which is therefore integrated and cannot be transferred materially, but only in exclusive and authorized use, and in any case, is compatible with the sequential workloads of the planned production facilities.
After designing and making the equipment, we can then move on to producing customized profiles that precisely meet the requirements of each customer.
Profilsystem can operate within narrow dimensional tolerances, from +/- 0.5 mm up to +/- 0.3 mm. To achieve these results, we use carefully selected, high-quality raw materials to ensure high production yields and the maximum precision of the final product.
