AD-PLAST AS A SUPPLIER
The advantages of choosing AD-Plast as a supplier are that we can offer all or selected services throughout the process flow – consultation through our designers, tool development, injection moulding of thermoplastics, and additional services such as laser printing, pad printing, etc.
At AD-Plast, we have our own construction department that can help with product design consultation and also help with brainstorming ideas during the project phase. Our design department also performs form filling analyses to prevent potential problems during the production phase. During a project, we commonly help with suggestions on how the product can be improved to optimise the form filling and thus ensure efficient production of the product.
In our own tool department at AD-Plast, we can cost-effectively offer the development of moulding tools. Using the ability to produce tools in-house, we can control the entire process flow to optimise the injection moulding process from start to finish. Today, we buy about 50% of our customers' tools in Sweden and abroad, while the remaining 50% are manufactured in our own tool department.
In our highly efficient production, we produce small and large quantities of thermoplastics. We see ourselves as not just a production company but also as a technical company. Our production solutions are technically thought through to maintain our competitiveness in a long-term perspective. For example, all our pallet handling is controlled through our automatic forklift system so that our team can focus on quality assurance.
We believe it is important to offer services that, throughout the process flow, make sure the quality is up to the standard we want to achieve. Therefore, we offer additional services during the production process in the form of:
- In-mould labelling (IML) – a label is cast into the plastic directly during injection moulding
- Pad printing – a silicone pad transfers a print onto a substrate
- Laser printing – a print is laser-printed directly on the substrate
- Assembly - assembly of components to deliver a finished product
