Aluminum extruders keep an inventory of the already produced supporting tools with the hope of reusing it. Usually they manufacture a new tool for each new die, although very often the right one is already in storage. Finding a suitable backer or bolster without an automated system is difficult and time consuming.
ALEX allows you to create a database of your existing tools and quickly and efficiently to search it.
ALEX applies a smart pattern matching algorithms and searches through stored backers and bolsters for the ones that match the shape of a newly produced die.
