Your project handled from start to finish by us thanks to our network of sub-contractors

Even if we manage most of the manufacturing processes in-house: the design, choice of materials (in terms of convenience or technics), machining, the gilding, the electronics, etc.
APA also knows how to use its network and the skills of other businesses to supplement its expertise.
Being the sole point of contact for our clients means that we monitor the project from start to finish. With the help of its sub-contractors, APA has control over every step (the cutting, machining, metal processing, etc) as well as the US break insertion and US welding. However, the overall assembly is always done on-site.

“We also know how to partner-up with other plastics specialists for important and or big projects. We have taken advantage of that and developed additional products like display cabinets, mass consumption products) and have started tackling the American market” adds Xavier Cotte, CEO of APA.

Paramedical, a new market to explore

With the purpose of continuing to grow and diversify, APA plans to develop its own range of products in the healthcare world. We are going to install laminar flow hoods above the clamps says Xavier Cotte, the CEO at APA Plastics. “This compact equipment prevents dust and will act as mini clean-room”.

In addition to the health sector, the system also meets the requirements necessary for the electronics market. The company therefore, is still continuing to renew itself and is not being complacent, today the paramedical sector and tomorrow who knows..?

Constantly investing in our Machinery

Always on the look-out for any kind of innovation, staying in tune with the market’s needs, Xavier Cotte, CEO of APA Plastics, regularly invests in his machinery and “guarantees real flexibility in the production process in order to meet customer deadlines”. APA also designs and builds tools in-house, focusing on managing deadlines and above all the quality of the products.
Currently equipped with 7 machines (30 to 350ton), which include 4 FANUC and Billon electric clamps, 2 robotic clamps and a fleet of machines make tools in-house, APA Plastics has just acquired a new machining centre the UGV Makino (20,000 rpm) which increases our manufacturing capability even more.

One unique contact person for your project

Do you have a specific kind of project? Don’t want to waste time on a multitude of suppliers and contractors? You can rely on APA to manage you entire project. We will handle every stage of the industrialisation output, from the analysis of the tools needed, the plastic injection mould and the finishes (UV print-outs) one unique contact person for every unique project! “We take care of every stage of product development, from the designs in our engineering department to the finishes, says Xavier Cotte, CEO of APA Plastics Processing. “We work with a network of qualified sub-contractors to meet all our customers’ needs.”

Our idea of plastic injection

The production of your plastic parts will go through a process called: Plastic injection. Discover how it works and the contact us for a personalized assessment of your project.

Plastic injection, also known as injection moulding is a process that delivers simple or complex (shaped) parts on a small or large scale.

Once we have studied your project, we will design the tool /mould needed, carry out the injection process and then present you with an actual prototype so you will be able to see the finished product at the end of our assessment.
The injection mould or injection tool has several roles:

1. Thermoplastic injection (plastic material)
2. The shaping of thermoplastic materials through the injection moulding
3. The cooling of the plastic material
4. The ejection of the plastic part

The injection mould or tooling is therefore the key element of the whole process. The mould is then mounted on a machine called an injection moulding clamp. With adjustments, this machine will then provide a set series of production (of your plastic objects).

APA Injection is equipped with 7 robotic clamps (ranging from 35 to 350ton), which include 3 electric FANUC clamps and 2 robotic clamps. APA also has a mechanics workshop at your disposal for the design and production of your tools (or your injection mould).

Our plastics processing company manages the design of your article from the beginning to the end. This ranges from the 3D digitalisation of your object, defining both the 2D and 3D drawings of the part, the design of the tools and the mass production of your plastic parts. In order to validate the piece before the actual tool is made, we will offer you a prototype in 3D Stereolithography – additional manufacturing which will supply you with a 3D print-out. In addition APA Injection can integrate threading, welding or the installation of inserts by US signals amongst other processes into its manufacturing system. APA Injection also offers finishes such as paint, soft touch, classic printing and high quality UV LED printing, and packaging according your requirements.

The digital 3 axis 120 Ton Fanuc clamp robot

In our plastic injection workshop we have 7 machines (ranging from 35kg to 350 ton forces), which include 4 electric Fanuc and Billon clamps, plus 2 robotic clamps.

Our CNC high precision completely electric injection moulding clamp

The FANUC Roboshot S-2000i is the only machine of its kind in the world (S-2000i 50B, S-2000i 100B et S2000i 300B) and is fitted with CNC technology which provides an extremely precise result. In fact, this technology which was originally used in wood and metal turning and milling is now being applied to moulding. The FANUC clamp has a control panel that interacts 16,000 times per second directly to the motor, so it is in constant communication and without the use of oil. The extremely reliable and precise movement provided by CNC technology which comes with its own high speed processor ensures fast cycles, which is ideal for mass production and additionally maintains a consistent level of quality. Not only is the FANUC clamp high quality, accurate and rapid, it is also environmentally-friendly.
