Extruded profiles

For whom do we supply profile housings?

Whether innovative start-ups or companies excellently established on the market ‒ anyone who needs aluminum extruded profiles or extruded plastic profiles for their electronics depends on good professional support. The focus is not only on the design of the enclosures. Important details such as service life, hygienic properties, ease of assembly and a reasonable price have a strong impact on the end product and its success on the market.

We accompany our customers in the complete process around extrusion resp. extrusion from the idea to the serial production of your end product incl. assembly and shipping. Just ask our product specialist for detailed expert advice on your ideas. We step in with our expertise exactly where it makes sense and is desired for your project.

Mastering the challenges

The shape and appearance of a profile housing in aluminum or plastic are created by the individual shaping and interaction of the die and core. Therefore, when developing an extruded profile, it is quite crucial to think not only about the practical benefits and the design of the later product. The process and its challenges must also be taken into account right from the start in order to be able to guarantee high product quality and an efficient process. The first step is the selection of a suitable alloy or plastic. In addition, the design of the housing should avoid cavities, large flat surfaces and narrow, deep openings. Uniform wall thicknesses ensure stability, as do auxiliary webs for complex cross-sections. If attention is not paid to these points, the product quality and service life of the mold will decline. At the same time, time-consuming reworking drives up costs. Our specialists will be happy to support you with their know-how so that you can concentrate fully on your core competencies. Contact us!

Concept extruded profile housing

During the concept phase, we work with you to define the enclosure requirements. These include functions, budget, cost-effectiveness, area of application and installation space. We discuss with you what we can do for you and which work steps you want to take over. Experience has shown that a holistic approach to design, manufacturing and assembly reduces overall production costs.

Product design extrusion

An appealing design makes up the emotional value of a product. We pay attention to producibility and cost-effectiveness for mass production as early as the design phase of the enclosures, made of extruded aluminum profiles. It makes sense to deal with the product design already during the development of the electronics.

Engineering extrusions

Our engineers develop your profile housing according to your requirements and create the technical drawings and 3D CAD models. You have already started with the design and development? No problem. We support you in every way. Because with 40 years of experience in enclosure engineering, we know how to efficiently develop aluminum profile enclosures for series production.

Rapid prototyping

Whether illustrative models, prototypes for functional testing, pilot series or exclusive small series for field tests ‒ depending on the purpose, surface finish, accuracy, quantity and material, we select the appropriate 3D printing process and produce your 3D prototype. Fast, cost-effective, tailored to your needs.

Tool making extrusion profiles

The extrusion die determines the shape and quality of the profile housing. With over 40 years of know-how in enclosure manufacturing and global tooling sourcing within the Phoenix Mecano Group, we can always guarantee the required tooling quality at reasonable prices.

Series production of extruded profiles

We can use the Phoenix Mecano Group's cost-effective production facilities for the production of aluminum profile housings. Variant production, finishing and assembly are then carried out in Switzerland. In this way, we are able to guarantee high flexibility in order quantities and short delivery times. The one-piece flow in our production reduces stock quantities to a minimum and allows us to manufacture individual product variants at short notice.

Procurement of electronics and components

As a supplier of fully assembled devices and assemblies, we are also happy to procure the electronics and components to be assembled for you. This ensures a simple, smooth procurement process and relieves your resources.

Assembly and functional testing

Our services are not limited to the production and delivery of profile housings. We can do more for you: If you wish, we can also take care of the assembly of the complete device, including function tests and packaging. Whether integration of membrane keypad, display or touch screen, installation of PCBs or electronics ‒ on our LEAN assembly workstations we assemble both small and large series efficiently and "just-in-time" in one-piece flow.

Packaging and logistics

To avoid unnecessary handling and thus additional costs, it makes sense to pack the assembled and tested devices immediately. In doing so, we focus on your requirements ‒ whether bulk packaging or final packaging with instruction leaflet, power supply and cable.
