Commitment to produce innovative products fast, right and on time.
Our reputation has been built around taking an idea from concept to completion faster and more cost-effectively than any other plastic injection molder.
PTA Plastics is a plastic injection molding company started in 1953 with the vision to bridge the gap between product design and production. Today, we are a recognized leader in plastic injection mold-making and production molding.
Our quality systems are customer centric and our primary goal is to clearly understand the product and user needs. Detailed quality guidelines are established for each purchased and manufactured item forming the basis for all quality assurance activities.
FAST AND ON TIME
As production processes have evolved, so too has PTA Plastics. Our company's two facilities, in Oxford, CT and Longmont, CO, utilize state-of-the-art technology and skilled staff to run production around the clock. We produce innovative products fast, right and on-time.
Design and Engineering Assistance
Our talented staff has extensive knowledge about plastics and their applications. Providing direct support for design and quality, we can rapidly define a 3D mold concept that takes into consideration manufacturability, moldflow, mold cooling and efficient removal of the plastic part from the mold.
PTA has 30 molding presses that range from 30 to 610 ton capacity. Utilizing state-of-the-art CNC and EDM technologies and fully equipped mold shops in both CT and CO, PTA builds approx. 200 molds per year and has the ability to tackle all projects both large and small.
We have worked with almost every plastic resin in the industry. Applications using engineering resins such as polycarbonate, nylon, ABS, PC/ABS blends, polyester, acetal and reinforced grades are our specialty.
PTA Plastics can lower customer costs through additional assembly functions, including ultrasonic welding and insertion, heat staking, thermal insertion, pad printing, hot stamping, mechanical assemblies and machining.
For customers that require ISO 13485:2003, PTA offers full process validation following an IQ, OQ, PQ protocol - including a formal process characterization report and 3-piece FAIR to fit our customers needs and requirements.
Specialty Molding Processes
PTA offers a handful of specialty molding process including over-molding, insert-molding, and structural foam/gas assist. Some of the benefits include cycle time reduction, resin savings, improved part quality, less stress and the ability to use smaller tonnage presses for the molding process.
