Pexco offers state-of-the-art extrusion and multi-extrusion processing technologies backed up by more than 60 engineering and engineering support personnel. In addition to processing, we also have the in-house resources for designing and machining extrusion dies. Pexco maintains six tool and die shops across its continental operations footprint. Our staff engineers are available to optimize materials, design dies, and facilitate processing to meet the most exacting standards.
Across our eleven production facilities and almost 1 million square feet of production space, Pexco operates 170 extrusion lines, including 72 2-1/2" extrusion lines, 76 3-1/2" extrusion lines, and 19 smaller lines, twin screw, and 4-1/2" lines. Our smaller lines include sizes down to 1-1/4". We also operate 62 co-extruders that are not used as main extrusion lines. Most of our extruders are manufactured by Davis-Standard.
Pexco’s commitment to quality through the use of a range of tools from optical comparators, laser measuring, Romidot impact testers to color spectrophotometers and a highly trained production staff allows us to meet some of the highest quality standards from simple to complex profiles and tubes. When leveraged by our 60+ Kaizen events per year and dedication to LEAN principles, this commitment is continuously strengthened.
Pexco operates three Certified Class 100,000 clean rooms at its facilities in Athol, Mass., and Monterrey and Mexicali, Mexico. These clean rooms are Hepa filtered, temperature and humidity controlled, and Pyrogen tested. They offer de-ionized air and positive air pressure throughout.
Pexco features 3D capabilities at multiple sites giving you the benefit of rapid prototypes - solid, tangible samples of your design within a few days.
Rapid prototyping or 3D printing is the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model. An object is created by laying down successive layers of material. Rapid prototyping is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques which mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc. Almost any shape or geometric feature can be created. Pexco currently has three rapid prototyping machines that are used to design and develop new custom parts everyday. More >
