Revolutionize.
With a z.

The z.trusion® technology creates indented patterns and structures, enabling advanced functionalities such as heat transfer and cooling, improved aerodynamics, lightweight structural optimization, tactile features, new surface textures – and sometimes just great looks.

An easy upgrade.

The technology is an easy upgrade to an existing production chain, adding an extra dimension to extruded products – with no additional after-processing, no additional logistics, energy consumption or production time, and zero material waste.

Cut/punch-outs
  • Cut-outs are possible along the edge of the profile in the extruded direction
  • Punch-outs for holes and other features are possible, depending on the surrounding geometry
  • Holes through a profile are possible in certain materials
Material

All materials that are normally suitable for extrusion can be used, until proven otherwise. Some materials that are normally not intended for extrusion are possible to use with z.trusion®.

  • Polymers
  • Rubbers
  • Aluminium
  • Ceramics
  • Composites
  • Bio composites
  • Cork composites
