Supporting new product introduction and speed to market, PTA Plastics is a progressive custom plastic injection molder – specializing in engineering for low/medium volume and high mix solutions. An in-house tool room with deep moldmaking competencies led by a cohesive team of Employee-Owners, PTA Plastics serves the medical, defense, and safety & security industries.
PTA Plastics is well known for producing highly cosmetic and complicated molded parts and it all begins with mold design. Utilizing Cimatron and a staff of in-house mold designers, PTA performs all mold designs in 3-D format. Because Cimatron is a catalogue based software, all common components can be quickly accessed allowing for an efficient mold design from start to finish.
We have state-of-the-art CNC and EDM technologies with fully equipped mold shops in both Connecticut and Colorado. In addition, PTA builds approximately 200 molds per year and has the ability to tackle all projects both large and small.
Molds are constructed with a combination of pre-hard steel and hardened steel using common materials such as P-20, S-7, H-13, and 420SS. Single cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold options are available. We provide a unique tool build approach while offering solutions to fit all of our customers' needs. In addition, we also provide mold warranties to fit any project requirement(s).
We believe in a tool build approach that is specifically unique to each customer. We understand and work with our customers through DFM to offer a solution that fits our customer needs, rather than forcing our customers into a typical standard. PTA offers mold warranties to fit any project requirement, and a paperless environment with immediate Engineering Change Notice (ECN) control. In addition, PTA utilizes a variety of coating and plating options to increase mold longevity when using highly abrasive materials.
