ALTEK Plastic Injection Molding


ALTEK Adds Benefits to Mold Design

Every plastic injection molding project at our injection molding and manufacturing facility in Spokane includes a rigorous review process, including part and injection mold design reviews, mold testing, and first article inspection.

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

Robotics and Automated Production

ALTEK’s provides custom manufacturing services to manufacture precision, close-tolerance parts, making us a supplier of choice for high-tech industries. This achievement requires the most modern plastic injection molding equipment available, including a variety of injection molding presses ranging from 28 to 1500 tons; assisted by robotics, automated delivery systems, and gravimetric color incorporation feeders. ALTEK produces a wide range of small, medium and large parts, and is capable of handling both low and fully automated high volume product lines. Our team is highly experienced in working with a wide range of thermoplastic, elastomeric, and filled resins and is committed to meeting your quality requirements while ensuring on-time deliveries.

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

Film Insert Molding

Quality Insert Design

Film insert molding is the fusion of thin film appliqué to a hard plastic substrate for a long lasting seamless appearance. Film insert molding also allows for unique design elements such as backlighting, scratch resistance, and multi-color aesthetics.

Gas Assist Injection Molding

Beneficial and Durable

Gas assist injection molding eliminates the need for structural foam molding. It allows for thick –wall structural molding without sink; eliminating the heavy expense of structural foam prep, paint and finishing. One-piece hollow handles are another great application. Gas pressurizes the cavity from the inside, allowing for a lighter, better looking end product without sacrificing strength. -Other benefits of gas assist injection molding include:
  • Eliminating potato chip effect on thin parts
  • Smoother outer wall at intersections and the elimination of ridges
  • Greater freedom of mechanical design
  • Lower clamping tonnage and injection mold pressure
  • Cycle time reduction
  • Reduced secondary operations
