Today's cars are built to last longer. Due to the challenges in today's economy, consumers are more likely to make repairs to their car. In response, car manufacturers are looking to make cars and parts more efficiently. High density and high performance thermoplastics are being used to replace metal because they are light-weight, can be produced quickly and consistently, and can be attained at a lower cost. API's expertise in using engineering grade resins and our ISO 9001:2008 rated facility make us a clear choice for many automotive part suppliers, both OEM and aftermarket solutions.
Examples of parts: connectors, bobbins, fuel pump components, pistons, sensors, cargo security, metal replacement applications, rubber replacement applications
Military / Defense / Aerospace
Autronic Plastics strives to be at the forefront of the industry in terms of material processing capability. API excels at working with difficult-to-process, engineering resins including PEEK, Ryton, Lexan, Valox, and Polyarylsulfone. These light-weight plastics are being used in military, defense, and aerospace applications due to their high performance and chemical resistant properties. Combining versatility with high precision and ISO 9001:2008 quality standards bring API to the top of the class with regard to plastic injection molders and make us the clear choice for engineering, metal replacement, or rubber replacement projects.
Examples of parts: bullet casings, cooling fixtures, adapters, bobbins, relays, helmet accessories, arc barriers, bullet testing equipment, flair components, FOD covers, industrial battery caps, metal replacement applications, rubber replacement applications
Autronic Plastics works with display manufacturers to improve point of purchase designs. API can help redesign plastic display components to incorporate additional features such as security packaging or modular and standardized parts to help reduce costs and improve efficiency.
Examples of products: fasteners, hooks, bezels, pegs, end-caps, cases, shopping cart signs
Consumer Products / Made in USA
With transportation and fuel costs near all time highs and overseas labor costs increasing, more and more companies are making a conscious effort to bring manufacturing back into the United States. Autronic Plastics, Inc. applauds the "Made in USA" initiative and in response, strives to be competitive with off-shore manufacturers. API helps to control transportation costs by housing all operations (design, engineering, tool building, manufacturing, quality control, shipping, etc.) in their Long Island, New York facility. This also helps reduce lead times and allows you to bring your product to market faster!
Whether you are an engineer designing a new plastic part, a sourcing agent looking to transfer an existing plastic injection tool or an entrepreneur with a great idea, you can be rest assured that your design will be handled safely and securely with our non-disclosure practices. Everyday products are designed and manufactured environmentally friendly with high precision and high quality.
