Plastics Injection Moulding Plastics Molding

For our clients, we are using the most cost-effective plastic injection mouldings manufacturing processes. Our wide selection of plastic injection moulding machines ensures that it is easy to satisfy any custom moulding specifications. We are capable of manufacturing plastic injection mouldings weighing between 1 g and 48 kg and with a surface area of up to 1.5m2.

We have over 25 years of experience in plastic injection moulding. With years of comprehensive moulding experience, we frequently produce complex and large plastic injection moulded parts requiring accuracy, functionality, and aesthetic qualities for custom manufacturing.

You will benefit from this by partnering with us by access to our highly qualified professional professionals who are here to provide solutions to your plastic moulding problems.

We offer as well gas-assisted plastic injection moulding – a new technology that offers great opportunities to reduce costs and improve the appearance of finished products.

Below you can find only some of the materials we can use for plastics injection moulding:
