ALTEK Manufacturing capabilities

 

The ALTEK Advantage Means Increased Profit and Reduced Time to Market.

When Al Marzetta founded ALTEK Manufacturing back in 1980, much of the plastic injection molding technology and processes we take for granted today didn't exist. What did exist was a vision of a company that could provide a single resource for product design, product development and manufacturing. Al's passion has made ALTEK a contract manufacturer that leads the industry in innovation, expertise and customer service.

Our customers see the benefits of that passion everyday with creative solutions that bring products to market quickly while maximizing profitability - without sacrificing quality.

PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDING

Empowerment and Innovative Ideas With Our Employees.

At ALTEK, many innovative ideas have originated with our employees. Everyone is encouraged to develop their own solutions, and our contributions are recognized and valued.

ALTEK engineers take the time to thoroughly discuss your objectives and explore all technology and materials options in order to ensure the most efficient solutions before we begin the task of designing and tooling your injection molds. Our engineers work closely with your engineering staff and, if necessary, third party experts to guarantee the most effective thermoplastic injection mold solutions.

You’ll also benefit from ALTEK’s complete injection molding tool maintenance and repair, in-house tool modifications, and off-shore partnerships.

Plastic Injection Abilities

ALTEK’s ability to manufacture precision, close tolerance plastic parts has made us a supplier of choice for high-tech medical device and aerospace injection molding. This achievement requires the most modern equipment available, including a variety of plastic injection molding presses ranging from 28 to 1500 tons, most of which are outfitted with robots and automated conveyor delivery systems. ALTEK produces small, intricately detailed parts, as well as larger, contoured parts using complex manufacturing processes.

We have fully automated high-volume production capabilities including generic and custom injection molding automation and fully automated bulk material handling systems.

Our team is highly experienced in working with a wide range of thermoplastics and committed to meeting your quality requirements while ensuring critical on-time deliveries.
