ACT is a specialist supplier of Automotive injection moulded parts. We have a range of injection moulding machines from 50 Tons up to 900 tons and are able to mould parts with dimensions up to 1,700mm in length, in a wide range of plastic materials.
As you would expect from an automotive supplier, we are TS16949 accredited, and have been for over 10 years. Realising that minimising scrap and waste leads to a lean, more cost-effective process, we use various world class tools and systems as part of our Quality Operating System, to ensure we run a clean, efficient production facility. This philosophy has secured our competitive position in one of the most cost sensitive market sectors.
Our site runs a 3 shift pattern to cope with the demands of just in time delivery and often high volume automotive requirements. We use robots on some of our equipment, but our workforce also has the flexibility to adjust processes to suit demand. This flexibility is key; it not only allows us to maximise peak production throughput when required, but also allows us to run lower volume work, for example to support niche vehicle programmes, accessories business or non-automotive moulding.
This production flexibility means we are well placed to serve the high volume Tier 1 global suppliers, but also act as a Tier One ourselves, servicing the vehicle manufacturers and their accessory businesses directly.
Our company’s background has very firm roots with the interior trim sector. Many of our high-quality injection mouldings are used in our own products, for example luggage covers, barrier nets and load floors. As such we are experienced in moulding ‘A surface’ interior trim parts. We also have a history of moulding exterior plastic parts, often chrome plated or printed, for example we supply some of the world’s most famous premium brands with exterior brightwear. We also have the technical ability to mould high temperature, under-bonnet parts as well as structural components.
No matter what the volumes, materials or application, whether it is tool re-sourcing, an entirely new project or perhaps re-shoring mouldings from overseas to save costs; whether you need make-to-print or a full design service, why not try ACT for your automotive injection moulded parts?
