PVC Profile Extrusion line: The Ultimate Guide
Searching for a PVC profile extrusion line to make plastic profiles e.g. window or door profiles?
You’re in the right place.
It doesn’t matter if you have an established plastic factory, or you’re setting up an entirely new PVC profile plant.
We wrote this article to introduce you to:
- Types of plastic profiles
- The PVC profile extrusion process
- Different PVC profile manufacturing lines
Benk is a high-quality and reputable, international supplier of PVC profile lines. The company will meet and exceed your requirements.
Most importantly, we’ll make importing a new PVC profile extrusion machine as easy as possible. With this short intro, let’s get started:
Chapter 1: What is a PVC Profile Extrusion Line
1.1 PVC profile machine explained
First, let’s understand: what PVC profiles are, why people are increasingly preferring them, and their diverse applications.
PVC profiles are plastic components produced through the extrusion process. The process usually entails melting the raw material inside an extruder by heating it to high temperatures. The melt is then pushed through a mould/die to create different shapes.
What makes them different from PVC pipes or plastic sheets?
Profiles are usually distinguished by their more complex shapes. For instance, PVC pipes are not profiles.
But a PVC window frame is a profile. It mimics wood millwork and aluminum frames designs, which are usually fairly complicated.
Are PVC profiles popular?
Yes, and for several reasons. First, they much easier, cheaper & faster to produce.
Currently, PVC profile products are used virtually in all parts of the world including North America, Europe, China, India, Australia, Africa among other markets.
Do they have any advantages over conventional materials?
When we compare PVC profiles and wood, for instance, we see that PVC profiles can have more color choices & finishes. You can use different techniques to decorate their surfaces.
PVC profile products such as WPC door boards (made by combining PVC resin + Wood Flour) are good for the environment –since they encourage reuse. You also have added benefits such as being water-proof, pest resistant, excellent workability, 100% recyclable, less maintenance, etc.
And compared to aluminum, PVC profiles are usually cheaper and require less energy to produce.
To recap, you can count on PVC profiles for their:
- Stability and robustness
- Relative ease of maintenance
- Design versatility
- Cost saving benefit
- Great insulation properties
- Ease of manufacture and fabrication
- Low greenhouse gas emission compared to aluminum frames
What is a PVC profile extrusion line?
It’s a series of machines used extrude & form molten plastic polymer into profile shapes.
The most common raw material for profiles is PVC mixed with CaCo3.
But plastic profiles can also be made from ABS, HDPE, vinyl, among other plastic resins.
PVC resin can also be combined with other materials like rice chaff, hemp, wood fiber and wood flour.
Such formulations are good in reducing costs, impacting special properties to the profile, and promote reuse & recycling.
And which machines make up a PVC profile extrusion making line?
You’ll find these components in most PVC profiles lines:
- Conical twin extruder – to melt and plasticize PVC resin
- Mold (which includes the shaping die head, vacuum calibration table, water bath)
- Haul-off machine
- Cutter and stacker
- Auxiliary machines include a PVC hot and cold mixer to prepare the raw materials. Recycling machines include the plastic grinder, mill or pulverizer used to recycle scraps generated during production.
- Chiller and air compressor
To make different products all you have to do is change the mold design and the downstream equipment.
It’s not strange to find the same extruder used in different PVC profile making lines.
1.2 PVC profile manufacturing process
The PVC profile manufacturing process is easy to grasp:
You start out by preparing the raw materials. This takes place in the hot and cold mixing tanks.
Here the PVC resin is mixed with several additives such as CaCo3, plasticizers, and pigments.
We consider the hot and cold mixer (High-speed mixer) an auxiliary/optional equipment because it’s not part of the main line.
You can read more about it here.
The PVC manufacturing process in steps:
- The raw materials are fed with the feeding device into the hopper of the extruder. Through gravity, they descend into the extruder’s barrel when the feed throat is opened.
- Inside the extruder’s barrel, there is a spinning screw. For a twin screw extruder, we have two screws. The screws are segmented into parts. The first being the feed section. Second, the compression section, where materials are compressed to remove trapped air. Next, we have the metering zone with decreasing screw flight depth used for plasticizing. Finally, we have the metering section, which gives the molten polymer a uniform feed rate before it exits the barrel.
- Over the length of the barrel, the raw material is heated and it turns from solid to liquid. The molten polymer acquires a thick bubble-gum consistency.
- Fitted at the extruder’s end are the breaker plate and screen pack. They carry out a number of functions including screening out impurities or inconsistencies in the melt. They also change the direction of the melt from rotational to longitudinal (also referred to as removal of screw turning memory from the molten polymer).
- Shaping of the melt takes place in the die. By varying the design of the die, a variety of profile shapes can be derived including window frames, trunking, industrial parts, medical parts, wall panels, etc.
- Calibration is the process of fine-tuning the shape produced by the die. It takes place in a vacuum calibration device and the profile is subsequently cooled in water or air to maintain the calibrated shape.
- The profile is drawn or pulled from the calibration device using a traction machine/haul-off system. The rate of pulling controls the thickness of the profile. If the rate of pulling is higher than the rate of extrusion, stretching occurs. So the speed of extrusion and pulling speed need to be accurately matched.
- Cutting, stacking and inspection, are the final steps the profile undergoes.
1.3 PVC profile uses
PVC profiles can be made into any shape, length, thickness or size. Due to their versatility, they have numerous applications including:
- Building industry
- Gaskets and window frames
- Profiles for technical industries
- Photo frames
- Cable truncating
- WPC decking
- WPC floors
- Imitation marble strip
- Door panels
- Corner/angle bead
- Edge banding strip
- Plastic ceiling
1.4 PVC profile production speed
Most extrusion manufacturers are concerned with the PVC profile production speed.
If you have more speed, that means more output, hence more products to sell! This allows factories to recoup their investment quickly.
The PVC profile production speed is expressed in the meters/minute (m/min).
From this, we have normal and high-speed lines. High-output lines have production speeds of 4, 5.5 or 6 meters per minute.
The biggest factor that will influence the PVC profile production speed is the extruder’s capacity, and this boils down to how many revolutions does the screw achieve in a minute.
More rpm translates to more material being extruded. Though high-output lines can cost more, in the long run, they tend to be more economical. They bring energy saving benefits of up to 15%.
1.5 PVC profile extrusion die design
Molding is the process of shaping molten polymer into solid shapes. It’s not just done by one piece of equipment.
Three main components are necessary:
- Die head
- Water tank
Some PVC profile extrusion lines like for PVC ceilings don’t have a water tank. But the die head and calibrator are absolutely necessary!
A lot of effort goes into PVC profile extrusion die design. Profile die heads are more complex than pipe or sheet dies.
The die head for a profile has both thick or wide regions and narrow or shallow regions. This is due to the unique shape the profile adopts.
Molten polymer flows faster in thicker or wider areas due to less resistance, and with reduced velocity in narrow regions.
Non-uniform flow affects the formation of accurate PVC profiles, and there is the phenomenon of die swelling to contend with.
To design precise profile dies, BENK carries out complex flow simulations and flow analysis on computers.
Pairing this with our extrusion experience, we can come up with very accurate profile extrusion dies for you.
Before we move on, let’s look at some of the parts of a profile extrusion die:
PVC profile extrusion die diagram
The adapter allows the die head to be fixed onto the barrel. It houses the breaker plate and screen pack.
The transition zone enables the molten polymer to smoothly transition into the pre-land zone by giving it preliminary shape.
The pre-land zone has the complex shape of the final profile. It’s narrower than the transition zone, and there is a huge pressure drop as the melt enters it. Besides this, the pre-land prevents the melt from deforming, keeps the die swell at a minimum and makes the flow more uniform.
Next is the land or die land plate responsible for impacting the final shape. It’s generally longer and must offset any expected die swell before the die exit. It’s critical to have the proper land length to sufficiently form the extrudate i.e. give it enough memory.
Finally, is the die exit through which the semi-solid profile leaves and enters the calibration system.
Example of Calibration unit for the production of PVC window profiles
1.6 What is a PVC profile welder?
During the manufacturing process of PVC profiles, there is a cutting stage, where PVC profiles are cut into lengthwise pieces.
Such pieces have to be joined together. For instance, four window frame profiles joined to complete a PVC window frame.
Three main methods are used to join plastic pieces.
- Mechanical joining – for instance using screws
- Adhesive bonding – accomplished using solvents, or hot melts
- Welding – via a heating device, ultrasonic welding, etc.
Plastic welding is preferred because it is simple, fast and cheap. It has three steps:
The pressure is used to press the two sections to be joined together. When the two pieces are heated, they soften/melt and mix creating intermolecular bonds.
Next, cooling solidifies the new bond.
Welding can be done after manufacturing PVC profiles. But you’ll need a separate PVC profile welding machine.
On a final note, the quality of the welds formed between PVC profiles not only depends on the type of welding method used, but it also depends on the weldability of the PVC material.
In this chapter, we have looked into PVC profiles in general. Next, we’ll get more specific by looking at different types of PVC profile lines such as the PVC ceiling and the PVC wall panel production line.

2.5 PVC wall panel production line
2.5.1 What is a PVC wall panel production line?
It is simply an extrusion machine used to produce panels for cladding walls both indoors and outdoors.
These profiles are usually made from:
- Plastic (uPVC) also called stone plastic wall panels since they have high concentrations of CaCo3.
- Wood plastic composite (WPC) since they have wood powder in their formula.
PVC wall panels
BENK can supply wall panel production lines for WPC and Stone plastic wall panels.
With our machines, you can make panels in widths of 300mm, 400mm, 500mm, and 600mm. But you can also customize the widths.
The surface of the wall panels can be made attractive using several surface treating techniques; printing, hot stamping or lamination.
2.5.2 PVC wall panels
So why are PVC wall panels popular?
Well, it’s good information to know if you’re planning to start PVC wall panel manufacturing.
The first reason has to do with their decorative capacity. They can be made to look like marble, natural stone, wood, photorealistic images, among a wide range of decorative patterns.
Therefore, they are an alternative material to aluminum, fiber cement, wood clapboard, and stone tiles.
Their water-resistance property makes them useful in toilets, kitchens, basements, and bathrooms, though they are still used in other indoor areas.
Wood effect created by PVC wall panels
In some regions including US, UK, New Zealand and Canada, they are popular weatherproofing materials used to clad the exterior of houses.
Users also find them easy to install. Some wall panels have lock designs thus they can be easily connected. Others have glued backs.
WPC and PVC panels are also easy to work with, since they can be glued, sawed and drilled.
Most of the wall panels have hollow structures. This makes them lightweight and cheaper to produce than solid rigid plate boards, since they consume less material.
2.5.3 Features & parts of PVC wall panel production line
|1.||Automatic feeder||One set|
|4.||Vacuum calibration unit||One set|
|5.||Hot stamping unit (optional)||One set|
|6.||Haul-off machine||One set|

2.6 WPC door production line
2.6.1 What is a WPC door production line?
It is a PVC profile extrusion line used to make door boards. Standard widths of the boards include 600mm, 800mm, and 1000mm.
Stacked hollow door boards
The WPC door panel has square-holes along its length with a thickness of 40 to 55mm. A complete WPC door is made up of several profiles.
So to make a complete door, you’ll need a separate production line for WPC door frames, which we also supply at BENK.
Door frame of a door – separate line required to make WPC door frames
Is this the only way? Well no, you can change the mold design after you make the door boards to make WPC frames using the same extruder.
But, this stops on-going production, leading to time wastage and downtime. So it’s much convenient to get a separate line.
WPC door frame use to cover WPC door boards
2.6.2 WPC door frames & boards
Are there are advantages of producing WPC doors and frames? Wood plastic composite doors made from CaCo3, PVC resin, and wood flour have several advantages over conventional materials such as plywood:

2.7 PS photo frame extrusion machine
PS foam photo frame
2.7.1 What is a PS photo frame extrusion line?
It is a type of profile extrusion line used to produce PS photo frames. These frames have two main uses: as photo frames and in home decoration.
Recycled PS or polystyrene is the main raw material, and it’s mixed together with other additives.
Unlike the other profile extrusion lines, we have looked at, the PS photo frame extrusion machine has several unique features: Most importantly, it utilizes two single- screw extruders to co-extrude.

Why two extruders?
Well, the first extruder SJ90/28 makes the inside foam layer. And the second extruder, SJ45/25, extrudes the outer layer.
Its downstream machines include a 10 meter cooling tank, hot stamping machines, embossing machines, haul-off, cutter and stacker.

2.7.2 Benefits of PSfoam photo frames
PS photo frames are chiefly made to replace wood frames. In addition to their use in holding paintings or photos, they can also be used as skirting frames, door frames, optical frames, bulletin board frames, windowsill lines, waist lines, corner lines, and more decorative elements.
Customers like PS photo frames because of their numerous advantages. They adopt various shapes, flowers, and patterns on their surface. They also have a wide range of finishes, for instance, gold coated.
Unlike wood frames, they are waterproof, insect-proof, environmental friendly, recyclable.
Polystyrene frames also resemble wood so well that it is not easy to tell them apart. They can also look like metal, bamboo, and other materials.
PS frames are cheaper too!
