IN-HOUSE FACILITIES & SERVICES
Strength in the technological field allows Star Industrial to stay ahead of the competitors. Our in-house mold-making department uses CAD/CAE/CAM computer systems from initial mold design to 3-D visualization & analysis, to gating & cavity configuration, and to provide a database for production. In addition, EDM, milling, lathing, drilling and grinding are employed to produce exact-tolerance molds of the finest materials, which include hard chrome-plated high-carbon and high-grade stainless steel.
We have over 60 sets of injection molding machines on site, including Hydraulic and All-Electric series that range from 22 to 1,300 tons clamping force. These high performance and precision injection machines are designed with multi-stage speed and pressure controls. Larger units employ removal robotics for automatic production. The 13 sets of blow molding machines produce 30ml to 100 liters capacities with parison control for uniform wall thickness. We have also installed clean room facilities (class 10,000 air contamination control and class 10,000 control standards) for our medical products and other items that demand the highest quality.
Our Art Department is constantly striving in the area of design and packaging to accommodate the many cultures, lifestyles & tastes in our different markets. Printing methods include silkscreen imprint, hot stamp and heat transfer.
