ABSTRACT --- The packaging of extruded profiles has taken on new
importance, due to several considerations. The cost of packaging is often almost
as much as the cost of extrusion, primarily due to the labor requirements. In
addition, the ergonomic problems related to repetitive motions, bending, and
stooping are no longer acceptable in industrialized societies. And profiles are
often damaged during transit, due to inadequate packaging.
