Companies of Lithuanian Plastics Cluster provide their clients with products of exclusive quality, offer competitive prices and serve them promptly. Products can be made of customer’s or companies’ materials in small, medium and big quantities. Most of the companies offer various injection moulding techniques, operate multiple injection moulding machines and are flexibility to produce different size and purpose plastic parts and products from a fraction of gram up to large masses. Cluster members produce for a variety of industries: from simple house hold equipment to complex technical parts which have strict tolerances and highest quality requirements. Cluster members – educational institutions – contribute to the joint activities in the fields of research and development.

PET INJECTION MOULDING

Injection molding is one of the most common processing techniques in the plastics industry. Product is manufactured by injecting molten plastic into a mold and cooling it down. The plastic injection moulding industry has evolved over the years from producing combs and buttons to producing a vast array of products for many industries including automotive, medical, aerospace, consumer products, toys, plumbing, packaging, and construction.

Products: PET preforms, PET bottles, etc.

PLASTIC INJECTION MOULDING

Plastic injection molding is one of the most common processing techniques in the plastics industry. Product is manufactured by injecting molten plastic into a mold and cooling it down. The plastic injection moulding industry has evolved over the years from producing combs and buttons to producing a vast array of products for many industries including automotive, medical, aerospace, consumer products, toys, plumbing, packaging, and construction.

Products: Plastic parts for automotive industry; Technical plastic parts; Household and furniture parts; Plastic parts for electronics industry; etc.

Materials: PA6.6/PA6 + GF/GB; PC; PMMA; POM; ABS; HIPS; TPE/TPU; PP; and others suitable for injection moulding technology.

THERMOSET INJECTION MOULDING

Thermoset molding is an irreversible molding process by which malleable forms of plastic are forced into a heated mold and formed into their final shape.

Thermoplastic molding is the reverse process where heated material is injected into a cool mold. The material is then cooled to maintain the final shape of the part.

MOLD FLOW ANALYSIS

Mold flow analysis is the process of simulating an injection moulding cycle with a particular plastic and analyzing the results.

Mold flow analysis should occur before the injection moulding process ever begins, through the use of specialized software that simulates the design of the part to be manufactured.

EXTRUSION

Hot forming method, in which molten polymer is continuously passed through a die having a predetermined shape in a flow state by heating and plasticizing and screw extruding, and then cooling forming.

BLOWING

Blow moulding is a manufacturing process for forming and joining together hollow plastic parts. In general, there are three main types of blow moulding:

  • extrusion blow moulding,
  • injection blow moulding,
  • and injection stretch blow moulding.

DESIGN

Plastic modelling and design services, aiming to meet high standards in manufacturing and custom made plastic parts / products.

TOOLING / INJECTION MOLDING TOOLS

An injection mold is one of the custom-machined tools used in plastic injection molding to mold molten plastic into plastic products. Precissious injection moulding tool is one of the most important criteria for high quality plastic parts production.

Tamping tool, forming equipment, moulding for plastic bottles, canisters, etc. Tooling for electrical appliances, consumer plastics, etc.

PROTOTYPING

Design teams implement ideas into tangible forms from paper to digital, build prototypes of varying degrees of fidelity to capture design concepts and test on users.

3D PRINTING

Information will be available soon.

THERMOFORMING

Heating plastic sheets to a pliable forming temperature, forming to a specific shape in a mould, and trimming to create a usable product.

SUBCONTRACTING

Lithuanian Plastics Cluster members provide subcontracting services.

EDUCATION

Cluster members – educational institutions – contribute to the joint activities in the fields of research and development.
