HTI Plastics' two new Injection Molding Machines arrived this week.
Mold flow simulation is a crucial part of engineering and producing molded plastics for a range of purposes. Molded products requiring custom injection should always have a simulation done before producing a prototype, as this increases the chances of a successful product.

Want to know what it's like to have a plastic product made by HTI Plastics? 

Plastic injection molding is a complicated process, so we provide our customers with detailed information from start to finish. Take a peek into our development and customer service process:

Injection molding is much, much more than just pouring liquid into a mold and letting it cool. It's a complex set of processes and temperatures that must be engineered with precision from start to finish. We like for our customers to know what we're up to, so we've put together a high-level overview of how the process works. 

In honor of the 30th anniversary, HTI will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, September 23rd from noon to 5 p.m. The open house will consist of tours of HTI’s state-of-the-art facilities, as well as drinks and snacks following the tours.
“Everything begins with engineering.” That’s HTI’s philosophy of product quality. Our focus on engineering has evolved through many years of experience analyzing exactly what leads to a quality product.

When HTI gets ready to create a new plastic product, we begin by determining injection molding machine press size. It's nowhere near as simple as "bigger is better" or any other easily memorable pattern - our products require very specific setups to be made to the highest standards.

November 5, 2014 - Lincoln, NE - Apex Plastics, HTI Plastics, and Lincoln Plastics-formerly Geist Plastics, are getting a new look. The three companies make up the Plastics Division of PCE, Inc. The decision to update the sites was made in an effort to better serve our customers.

It's one thing for us to say that we are ISO certified, but what does that mean?  And more importantly, what does that mean for you?

A mold-production benefit for HTI customers.

From a plastics manufacturer’s point of view, one of the most important aspects of injection molding production planning is price. If manufacturing process doesn’t monetize correctly, a product isn’t worth producing. At HTI, we use a number of different processes and principles to assure optimum possible price with best possible results. One element of production we carefully consider to achieve a satisfactory price is cavitation—the number of cavities producing a part with each press cycle.
