Why Inplex Is The Chosen Plastic Profile & Custom Extrusions Manufacturer
From 184.3 billion USD in 2016 to an expected 291.74 billion USD in 2026, the extruded plastics market is only getting stronger. Part of the reason for its growth is the fact that extruded plastics can be found in nearly every industry — and they’re often indispensable. Because of that, many customers choose Inplex Custom Extruders, as they know that Inplex is the best plastic profile supplier.
We’re sharing what sets Inplex apart from other plastic extrusion providers and why so many clients prefer to work with us.
Our Continuous Capacity
One of the greatest benefits of working with Inplex is we have the facilities and equipment in place to meet some of the most strenuous extrusion demands. Our 42,000 sq. ft. facility has industry-leading custom extrusion equipment, along with a wide variety of resins available for use. Some of our facility features include the following:
- Three shifts running 24/7 for around-the-clock production, so we can keep our systems running until your order is filled.
- Ten extrusion lines, ensuring that we’ll have the capacity to fill your order.
- An environmentally-friendly closed-loop water cooling system, enabling us to cool your plastic tubing at the necessary rate to achieve the material properties you need — without all the waste.
- Nearly 100 different resins ranging from commodity grades to engineered resins like urethanes and nylons, giving you a full range of materials to choose from.
- Specialized equipment, designed for many custom extrusion methods like jacketing, co-extrusion, and tri-extrusion, to name a few.
Our facility has both the capacity and equipment to generate custom plastic profiles according to our clients’ specifications. This is why many customers will choose Inplex for their custom extrusions, even if they know they might have to pay up to 5-10% more than with competitors. We’re able to get the job done.
Our Custom Capability & Products
Inplex not only boasts the capacity to fill large-volume orders, but we also have the equipment to make many custom plastic profiles. The diversity of the extruded plastics industry means that many different parameters must be specified for each application, so it’s essential that your manufacturer is able to meet all the ones you need. Some of the most common extruded plastic parameters are:
- Wall thickness
- Thermal conductivity
- Corrosion resistance
Whether you’re looking for flexible or rigid, stock or custom, multicolored or clear products, Inplex can make the custom extrusions you need, and we do it with the lead time and functionality that nobody beats. This is why even some manufacturers come to us when they can’t fill their own orders.
Extensive Industry Expertise
Capacity and customization aren’t enough to meet clients’ needs if you lack experience. Founded in 1967, Inplex has well over 50 years of experience behind us, and we use our knowledge to help clients through any complications in the design process.
As customer advocates, we provide design for manufacturability (DFM) feedback for any willing client so that the final product will come out right the first time. For example, if a wall is so narrow that we expect it to collapse or a height-to-diameter analysis shows that buckling is a possibility, we can make recommendations to tweak your design for optimal performance — with the customer always having the final say.
Our current ownership has been at the top for 14 years, and the average employee tenure is 16 years. That means our team not only has the expertise that can only be acquired by extensive experience, but we have the organizational stability to ensure that we’ll be around to meet our clients’ needs. Experience is essential in the extruded plastics industry, and no one has it like Inplex.
Inplex Has Your Custom Extrusion Needs
The extruded plastics industry is so broad because its products are vital for so many parts of life that we take for granted every day, which is why our customers will entrust them to no one else, like Inplex. High-volume capacity, custom capability, and deep industry expertise set us apart from the competition, and makes us an industry leader in custom plastic profiles.
