Experts at your service

When the profile’s characteristics are clear, it’s time to move from paper to CAD. Our profile designers use modern equipment and the newest CAD software. We can also send an electronic copy of the design to the customer. If necessary, we can create a visual representation of the profile using 3D modelling, giving an accurate idea about what the final product will look like.

Our customers benefit from our profile designers’ top-notch skills and extensive experience. Our designers are skilled in utilizing aluminium’s excellent formability, creating different joining mechanisms and selecting the correct alloy and surface treatment for each purpose. Our designers are also well aware of cost factors, since they are used to working in close collaboration with both the customer and our sales department.

Documents and model pieces

After the CAD design phase is complete, we can deliver the customer an electronic copy of either a traditional 2D image or a 3D model that simulates the product’s visual appearance. The customer always gets the design documents and model pieces for their own use.

If the customer so desires, we can also produce a 3D-printed plastic model of the profile that can be tested in the customer’s application. This way it is possible to test the profile’s functionality before the actual die is ordered.

Once the die for the profile has arrived, it will be prepared for a test run. Model pieces from a successful test run can be delivered to the customer, if the customer so desires. The model pieces will have cross-sectional dimensions that match the provided picture of the profile. Due to the nature of the test run, the surface quality and profile’s tensile properties may be different from what has been agreed, which is why model pieces should not be surface treated.
