Extrusion for identity
We were recently approached by a caravan accessories manufacturer. Legislation changes dictated that all gas carrying hoses needed identification labels.
Abbey took the existing hosing, in this case a stainless steel tube reinforced with steel braiding and fed it through two extrusion processes.
The first process provided labeling facility, the second ran a complete extrusion process that covered the entire pipe and protected the labelling from ware and tear.
Extrusion for insulation
A newspaper printing house approached us with a problem. Existing pipe work above their printing press carried cooling water to the print heads. The water pipes caused condensation and droplets of water dripped onto the paper blanks.
Our solution was to encapsulate the water pipes with an insulating foam type material. Once installed the insulating material prevented condensation without effecting operation or significantly increasing production costs.
