Extrusion Assessment Including Tooling Methods

There’s a lot of so-called “experts” out there willing to look at your extrusion process and give their recommendation on what they believe is the latest and greatest processes. I know what works and what doesn’t, just like them. However, I also understand that you do not have an unlimited budget. I clearly see what the so-called experts often overlook – you cannot afford to start over and reinvent the wheel.

When I do an assessment, I look for the pivotal points that have the most impact. Are the operators trained and do they understand how to run, or troubleshoot, an extruder? Is the instrumentation on the extruders adequate for the operator to run them efficiently? Do the operators know what they are looking at?

Tooling methods often have a lot to do with the operator’s success. I’m not talking about what’s the latest design, instead, when I review tooling methods, I am looking at whether the tooling is user friendly. Are Lean Manufacturing principles being applied? Is Lean Tooling coming out of the toolroom to the floor? Can anything be done to help Reduce Operators Interaction with the Process (ROIP)?

Do not waste scrap and let me help you better understand the state of your extrusion process. Call for help today!

Tim Groth President / owner of Extrusion Solutions North, LLC has dedicated his life to extrusion. Tim Groth is well aligned with the leading authorities in the industry to be a one stop shop for all your extrusion needs

The only thing I like more than standing on the extrusion floor and solving a problem is the smile on the faces when the problem is solved.

I grew up on the shop floor and learned every aspect of not only extrusion process but the extrusion business. I began as an operator, shifted to set up technician, advanced to Production Manager, and ended my career as a Plant Manager overseeing all aspects to include engineering applications. I can convert the tribal knowledge to science, because I’ve been there. I’ve turned the knobs and I’m proud of it.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge. I am proud to call myself an extrusion specialist and have earned the title by being mentored by some of the best names in the industry. I am aligned with the most trusted experts in the industry.

I look forward to helping you! See the services I provide and how we can start our business relationship today.

Skills that count

I have 37 years of hands-on extrusion experience specializing in design for extrudability, tooling design, trouble shooting, material selection, plant set up, training of engineers, and set up technicians.
