Are you interested in precision extrusion? Feel free to contact us.

Designing without concessions

EN-755-9 and EN-12020-2 are the accepted standards for the extrusion of aluminium profiles. They permit deviations of ±0.15 mm or more. Mifa uses its precision extrusion technology to build components with tolerances of up to 0.02 mm. This gives you unprecedented freedom of design to optimize your equipment and instruments.

Mifa encourages its customers to free their minds in the design process. An extrusion profile is two-dimensional, but with the right knowhow and a generous helping of creativity the sky's the limit.Three-dimensional issues sometimes call for two-dimensional solutions. Our engineers help you to get the best results by contributing ideas at an early stage.

Lightweight profiles and applications for the medical market

Mifa has been designing Magnesium Wheels for some years now. They are the world's lightest wheelchair wheels. These are the wheels that won us the Materialica Design & Technology Award in 2013. This breakthrough in magnesium technology is being used to create a new generation of lightweight mobility products for those dependent on medical appliances. Depending on the product, up to 35%! But the combination of weight and strength is also very important to other applications.
