Driving Optimal Cost and Manufacturability
Nearly 40 Years of Proven Engineering Expertise
Our team of over 20 engineers is a dedicated group of collaborators with a built-in knowledge base, allowing them to streamline a product's manufacturability. Years of experience in reviewing new or existing designs have, at times, led to cost savings of 15 – 20%.
Working with you early in the development process ensures your product is designed to optimize all steps in the manufacturing and assembly process. We often identify opportunities to reduce steps, so you achieve the best possible cost, quality, reliability, and time-to-market.
Our time-proven quality management practices certified to ISO 9001: 2015 standards, ensuring you'll not only get the best value; you'll get consistent quality in the products we produce on your behalf.
Combining Technology and Knowledge
We use CAD software along with our own engineering staff’s knowledge to implement innovative and effective solutions for our customer's specific needs. We produce parts or items based on original customer drawings.
Our Extruded Aluminum Profile Design Process
Our approach for every new aluminum extrusion requirement involves having a comprehensive understanding of your product so our team can review the profile design and confirm “design for extrudability”. Understanding the component’s end use and associated product requirements are essential to selecting the proper aluminum alloy. Additionally, establishing tolerance limitations and directional build-up during the design review ensures functional performance and may reduce the need for additional machining.
Concurrent with the extrusion design process, our aluminum manufacturing solutions team focuses on any recut, CNC machining, punching, or finishing requirements. On profiles requiring further fabrication, our ability to deploy multi part set-ups offers significant savings to our customers.
When a new profile or component design review is finalized, a formal quote from Vitex Extrusion is submitted. Depending on the engineering requirements of the profile or component, it typically takes us 1-3 days to develop a formal quote. Included will be the aluminum extrusion and applicable fabrication costs.
Prior to an order being entered, a detailed drawing of the extrusion is forwarded for final review and approval. This profile drawing is referenced throughout the entire production process, from tool development to final inspection.
