Plastic Manufacturing: Plastic Injection Molding

Autronic Plastics, Inc. has nineteen in-house plastic injection molding machines, 24/5 manufacturing on the molding floor, and additional capacity when running multiple weekend shifts to bring your product to the market quickly and efficiently.

API's core manufacturing competencies include thermoplastic molding, insert molding, two-shot molding, transfer tooling, and assembly.

  • Insert molding is often used to reduce the costs associated with adding inserts as a secondary operation. API works with customers to source a high quality insert and offers both manual and automated insert molding options depending on customer requirements for timing and cost.
  • Two-shot molding is another way API can reduce costs associated with multiple handling. API can shoot two different resins in the same process to add additional features such as grip, color variation, added protection, sealing, and even chemical bonding.

Combining our various molding methods with fully automated, semi-automated, or manual assembly allows API to be a turn-key plastic manufacturer and a one-stop shop.
