How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy [X]

Cut-To-Size Items are Non-Returnable!

As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under "Comments" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade. Please review our full return and shipping policy here.

Measure Twice, Cut Once

Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.

How to Use a Measuring Tape

Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.

Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2" has a bigger mark than 1/4" which has a bigger mark than 1/8". The smallest mark follows at 1/16". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.

Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook

The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).

ACEUEXTRR - Overview

TECAFORM® AH UD Blue Rod is an ultra detectable food grade plastic made from an acetal copolymer. It has been specifically designed for use in food contact applications.

In the food industry, food safety is of the utmost importance. Companies must ensure that food only comes in contact with FDA compliant materials throughout the food production process. TECAFORM AH UD Blue will show up in any standard detection process, making it a suitable replacement material regardless of what detection system is currently being used.

Food production lines detect unwanted particulates in the product using one of the three standard detection processes: optical scanners that easily detect blue material, metal detection equipment, or X-ray equipment. TECAFORM® AH UD Blue is the first multi-detectable plastic that will show up on all three detection systems.

  • Metal detectable material
  • X-ray opaque
  • Food grade blue color for optical scanning
  • Good mechanical properties
  • Good machinability
