GTP employs scientific injection molding which is a disciplined approach to determine and control the optimum injection molding parameters, to produce consistent quality molded parts at a lower overall cost. Using scientific molding techniques, GTP establishes consistent, repeatable plastic injection molding process parameters based on predictable facts and data. Focusing on part design, mold design, material selection, and measurement of plastic injection molding parameters, GTP systematically eliminates variables that would result in defective or out-of-spec parts.
GTP applies the latest in scientific injection molding technology, coupled with the experience of our highly trained team and innovative engineering, to ensure the optimal plastic injection molding process controls, repeatability and part quality.
Since its inception in 1981, GTP has utilized literally hundreds of different materials to effectively meet our customers price and performance specification. This includes high performance polymers which are critical for our metal-to-plastic part conversions, engineered polymers filled and un-filled commodity and custom formulations known for their UL flame retardancy/heat resistance and enhanced/commodity resins filled, high impact, anti-static, scratch resistant PP and TPO’s along with injection mold grade HDPE, LDPE, PVS & PPS.
GTP has a deep-rooted material supply base and has been working with a core set of specialty suppliers for over 20 years. This has allowed GTP to develop trusting relationships with these suppliers. As a result, GTP collaboratively works with these suppliers and customers in developing, testing and analyzing material formulations that meet or exceed customer requirements for new and metal-to-plastic applications.
With this broad resin exposure and experience, GTP has been able to hone its manufacturing capabilities to produce plastic injection molded components and assemblies across a full range of materials from high performance polymers to commodity resins.
RJG Technology (eDART System™) is a comprehensive process monitoring system resulting in improvement of molding quality, productivity, and profitability.
GTP’s lights out, high precision, tight-tolerance injection molding capabilities allows us to meet tolerances of up to +/- 0.025mm. Manufacturing tight tolerance parts does not “just happen”. It takes collaborative efforts with our customers during the design phase along with a number of factors that influence tolerances. GTP is able to achieve tight tolerances by attention to numerous factors including:
GTP is capable of meeting tight tolerances on injection molded components and assemblies because we understand all of the elements needed to produce a good part capable of meeting tight tolerances. Along with our expertise and experience, we invest in new, world-class technology and have machinery and equipment that is well maintained and calibrated. We also work with tool suppliers capable of building high-quality molds and we add secondary automated operations (for post-mold assembly) if needed.
