Plastic injection molding is a process in which large numbers of high-quality product parts are produced with great speed and accuracy.
Thermoplastic granules are melted until they are soft enough to be injected into a mold of hardened steel under high pressure.
After having cooled down in the mold, the plastic parts are ejected. After that, the process will be repeated.

After receiving a Purchase Order, we start with a kick-off meeting organized by the dedicated Project engineer. During the kick-off meeting, the project engineer shares valuable project information with the defined project team, including plant members.
On finalizing a project, a final closure meeting will be organized before starting production. All project data are constantly managed in a tracking and tracing system.
ASPEL uses thermoplastic polymers, mainly general and engineering polymers. These materials are sometimes combined with thermoplastic elastomers for 2K molding.
