Custom Shaped Handles
A Custom Handle made from Profiles, Shapes and sometimes Special
Shaped Tubing, can be used as Appliance Handles, Basket Handles, Machine
Handles, Stainless Steel Handles, Lifting Handles, Pull Handles, Tool Box
Handles and much more.
A Custom Shaped Handle, can also be made to telescope as 2 Profiles,
Special Shapes or Mouldings, sliding in or out of each other. Tooling
costs are typically required though you may find something to work for
you on this basis in the print section below.
Custom Handle Prefinishing
Prefinishing can be supplied as we provided on print #193 shown
below for Microwave Handles. This Microwave Handle that did not telescope,
had a Laminated Woodgrain Vinyl applied to the steel before our forming was
done. The inside of the handle was prepainted as well. Oven Handles are
another common use for Profiles, Channels and Special Shapes used to become
Handles. Another frequently used handle is a non-telescoping Oven Handle
which may have special end fabricating and polishing done to it. Lower
volume handles in these styles are usually post finished due to minimum
orders required for pre-finished metal.
In regards to prepainted coatings and other prefinishes and post fabricating,
let`s go to a Basket Handle component. This handle is a single length of a
profile or moulding. It is produced in decorative prepainted steel. This Decorative
Handle is then bent in a secondary operation into a short U-type frame, for a partial
radius segment at the top where a hand is placed with the ends of the profile staying
straight. All this is done to a prefinished part and the paint still holds up. The
ends of these Decorative Handles used for baskets have special inline end fabrication
with a radius cut end and holes for attaching to the basket. If the handle was not
straight at the ends but just a partial radius segment only, the bending into the segment
could have been done inline as well.
Handles we manufacture can be manufactured from Pre-Finishes such as: Prepainted, Preplated,
Gavlvanized, Aluminized, Preanodized, Prepolished, Prelaminated Vinyl and more. Base Raw materials
can be: Steel, Stainless, Aluminum, Brass, Bronze, Copper, Clad, Embossed, Perforated, Alloys,
and more. In some cases you may find a handle we can produce that will have a polished stainless
profile used as a cladding to slide firmly over an aluminum handle base such as print #226-Z
below. With low volumes, access to prefinished metals may be difficult to obtain. In those cases
Post Finishing may be provided or you may decide to use a prefinished metal that isn`t hard to
obtain with prefinishing such as Tin Plate, Galvanized, Aluminized, etc.
Inline Fabrication can be provided to the Roll Formed Handles, such as: Holes, Slots, End
Fabricating, Swaged Ends, Cut-to-length, Radiused Ends, Dimple Free Ends, Shear Forms, Ring Bending,
Notches and more. Secondary operations and special assemblies can also be provided such as plastic
connectors or snap locks as mentioned previously. For more information about Telescoping Tubing please
