Using the latest state of the art machines and additional resources we are able to injection mould components from less than 1g to over 800g in weight via single cavity conventional fed tools through to multi-cavity hot runner systems. We also specialise in partial hot runner systems that give the benefits of sprueless moulding with the added advantage of quick and precise colour changing.
Our wide experience of materials and currently used polymers range from general purpose grades such as ABS, Polystyrene and Polyethylene etc. to more technically advanced engineering grades such as filled and unfilled Polyamide (PA), Polybutylene-therephthalat (PBT), Polyacetal (POM) and  Polycarbonate (PC).
Coupled with our in-house knowledge and technical assistance available via our supply network to existing and newly developed polymers you can rest assured that we will find the right material for your application.

Other Services We Provide - Insert Staking

What is Insert Staking?

Using thermal probes, brass or metal inserts are inserted into cavities moulded into the component.  Heat from the probe transfers through the insert and melts the plastic surrounding the insert so the insert becomes embedded in the component. This process can be used on a variety of products including fasteners, hinge plates, pivots and hubs to name but a few.

Contact Gilt Edge Plastics if you require this service.

Other Services We Provide - Pad Printing

Another form of printing we provide at Gilt Edge Plastics is Pad Printing.

Need more information on Pad Printing? ...........

Pad printing is a form of printing that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object.  Initially an image is etched into a flat printing plate and ink is then poured into the etch.  A flexible silicone rubber pad picks up a film of ink from the plate and transfers it to the three dimensional part surface.  Throughout this process the ink becomes tacky as solvent evaporates from the ink. The flexible silicone pad is able to pick up the image from the flat plate and transfer it to many surface shapes – e.g. concave, convex spherical and cylindrical. By applying pressure the pad conforms to the surface shape and leaves the desired image on the object. This form of printing can be used on products including electronic components, sports equipment, toys, automobile parts, medical equipment and many others.

Other Services We Provide - Hot Foil Printing

At Gilt Edge Plastics, we provide a range of other services to help finish your products.

One of them is Hot Foil Printing.  So... what is Hot Foil Printing?

Hot foil printing is a highly effective and appealing way of printing designs, text and graphics on to moulded parts using a heated die and coloured foil but without the use of ink thereby eliminating drying times.

This effect can be produced by using a wide variety of foil materials such as holographic, metallic and matt colours. The die comes into contact with the foil and places a thin layer of foil onto the moulding.  When heat is added the foil adheres to the object leaving the required design.
