Injection Molding Machines Provide Limitless Capabilities

Over 27 years of manufacturing makes HTI Plastics the preferred plastic injection molding manufacturer in the world.  We offer innovative solutions in part, product and mold design, project management, mold sourcing and development, production molding, and secondary operations for a wide range of industries; execution to exact customer requirements is our obsession.

We will work with you using our proven
in-depth process that consists of these components:


Product development

HTI design engineers are experts at prototyping new concepts, improving manufacturability of existing designs, and designing for improved manufacturability and down-line savings.

We have the capability to take anything from a napkin sketch to solid models and detailed drawings, and turn around high quality plastic injection molded parts that are designed to optimize cost, weight, manufacturability, ergonomics, and performance.

At HTI, our goal is to create a design that is manufactureable and meets your expectations. Getting us involved in the early stages of the product design ensures you the success you should expect from your manufacturing partner.

Engineering

Plastic part design engineeringOur expertise and know-how is from years of creating products using a wide range of materials, design requirements and manufacturing challenges.Our engineers fully support the customer during every phase of every project.

Industrial designers typically focus on function, appearance, and ergonomics. HTI Plastics’ design engineers add a vital criteria; designing for manufacturability.

We pride ourselves on our extreme attention to your specifications and project details, and deliver a design that is moldable, which is what you should expect from us.

Whether designing parts or tooling, we utilize the most advanced software and tools, including:

  • CAD Platform is Solid Works 3D
  • Translation Software: IGES, STEP, DWG, DXF
  • Mold flow analysis
  • SLA / SLS Models
  • Process Development
  • Rapid Prototyping

Our engineers also are well versed in converting parts made in other materials. Converting wood or metal constructions into plastic provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Lower total cost
  • Light weight
  • Weather resistance
  • No rusting or denting
  • Ability to mold in Inserts

Process development

Our Manufacturing Engineers have knowledge and expertise in numerous product industries. Their capabilities cover all aspects of injection molding from material selection to process optimization techniques. You can expect the highest level of skill, developing the most cost efficient process available.

  • Mold construction
  • Prototyping

Plastic injection molding toolingTooling

HTI Plastics has a unique advantage that sets us apart from the standard injection molding manufacturer, our toolmakers. HTI’s on-site tool and die manufacturing department allows us to reduce turnaround time on new production. Our goal to obtain maximum production, minimum cycle time and prolonged mold life is accomplished in one simple process.

  • CNC Mills
  • EDMs
  • Lathes
  • Infinity Grade Option
  • Care & Maintenance of existing molds
  • Versatile mold bases to reduce costs
  • Interchangeable cavitites
  • Various Types of Prototyping

The result is a mold that effectively withstands the rigorous demands of high-pressure injection molding.

Injection molding

Here at HTI Plastics, we have a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with 23 Krauss Maffei injection molding machines that range from 50 to 950 ton. These German engineered presses offer outstanding precision, high quality, dynamic responses and the fastest dry cycle times in the industry. We also utilize a computerized material distribution system and have on-site silo storage of resin.  While Nebraska has some of the lowest energy costs in the nation, we knew we could reduce are costs even more by transitioning from hydraulic presses to all electric.

Materials

We can run all types of resins from commodity to engineered grades, high temperature to filled materials.

Automation

We are dedicated to improving productivity through automation. The presses are operated in an automatic mode to the greatest extent possible. Parts are removed from the injection mold by robotics or conveyor systems. The result is a reliable, efficient, and cost effective system to improve manufacturing process.

Assembly solutions

From prototyping and tooling, to finishing, assembly, and packaging, HTI does it all. Our secondary applications include:

  • Insert Molding
  • Over Molding
  • Clean Assembly Environment
  • Ultrasonic Welding
  • Automated Videoscope Measuring
  • Hot Stamping
  • Bar Coding
  • PAD Printing
  • Machining/Tapping/Drilling
  • Packaging
  • Shipping
  • And much more.

 


Extensive packaging relationships

In addition to offering injection molding, HTI works regularly with other major packaging manufacturers, contact fillers, bag companies, packaging decorators, and other packaging suppliers to offer our customers a single-point resource for a wide variety of packaging solutions. Our well-developed resource network lets us offer innovative, multi-component solutions, simplify customer purchasing, and solve packaging challenges.
