About our Mould Shop

Active Plastics is proud to say that we have nine PLC computer-controlled injection moulding machines. These are suitable for any size project as they range from 50 – 500 ton. We also have an on-site hi-tech drying facility to complete the plastic moulding process. We have ultrasonic welding capabilities, should your project need this.

Our stock range is one of the best and exotic grades in New Zealand, and of superior engineering grade. We mould carbon fibre plastics that are used in the aerospace industry. These polymers are not only very lightweight but chemically resistant and strong enough to stand the rigours of flight.

After we have moulded your plastic components, they will be inspected in our post moulding assembly section. Here we will make sure that they meet with all your specifications. After inspection, your final products will be custom packaged for delivery to your clients.

Only after your products have been approved by you, will we go ahead and sign them off and completed.
