Being able to make the best products in the world only starts with the best designs. Once they reach the prototype and production phases of the project, having the right equipment and processes are keys to ensure a successful launch and day to day efficiency. At SEA-LECT Plastics, we use Milacron equipment for plastic injection molding in all industries we support. Learn why we trust this brand of equipment and why you should too:
In our efforts to support aerospace and military customers, we use fluids that have been specially formulated for high precision applications and hard to machine alloys for molds and rapid prototypes. These specialized fluids and products are used across the aerospace industry for components ranging from commercial aircraft to NASA space programs. These fluids have been used for decades to increase efficiency and productivity where there is no room for error.
The automotive industry is a difficult industry to work within as it requires low costs, high quality, and high consumer safety. It doesn’t matter if the parts are large or small, the end results must meet quality and cost while keeping safety at the forefront. In order to meet those demands, Milacron technologies allow SEA-LECT Plastics to mold and manufacture high-strength, low-weight, and durable components and assemblies.
Many of our smaller applications that we design and develop revolve around a consumer market to make life easier. Components and packaging for personal hygiene, housewares, cosmetic goods, and convenience goods are common requests that we can bring to market quickly with attractive design and packaging. The market is starting to replace wood, glass, and metal with plastics with multi-component, co-injection and structural foam processes. Milacron technologies allow SEA-LECT Plastics to stay flexible with high-volume injection molding production.
Electronics & Telecom
The industries supporting consumer electronics and smart devices continues to grow year over year while the design and development cycles required to bring new products to market is shrinking at a rapid pace. Milacron’s latest technologies used for rapid product development cycles allow SEA-LECT Plastics to offer superior precision and part quality while reducing development cycle time and prototype cost. Milacron plastic injection molding machines, hot runners, and process control systems offer high capability and efficiency that SEA-LECT Plastics puts to use every day in production and product development. They also reduce energy costs, reduce cycle times, and offer un-paralled repeatability.
Food & Beverage
SEA-LECT Plastics offers various options for food and beverage options through tumblers and other lightweight products that require superior gas barriers for increased freshness and shelf life. These applications use less plastic and require less cycle time. Milacron technology is used in beer storage, pet food products, and liquids ranging from dairy to juice products. This allows SEA-LECT Plastics to develop attractive options with plastic injection molding and blow molding.
Klear Can Co-Injection
Milacron recently acquired Kortec (now Milacron Co-injection), which has made Klear Can co-injection technology available at a reduced cost and that elevates product-packaging possibilities. Through co-injection technology, Klear Can replicates the benefits of airtight metal cans in a plastic container. This allows shelf-stable foods to be stored in a BPA-free plastic container and extends shelf life by up to five years. The Klear Can is also fully retortable up to 130 degrees Celsius. The addition of Klear Can’s technology as an option allows SEA-LECT Plastics to utilize existing downstream equipment for filling, seaming and retorting, thus requiring decreased capital equipment expenditures. We can now support and develop products for the food industry with new product marketing and attractive design options.
The medical industry requires high-quality and clean room environments that don’t allow any margin for error. New medical technologies and advances in science require medical plastics with comprehensive manufacturing solutions as well as partners who understand, and are able to fulfill, the exacting requirements of medical technology. Milacron has the technologies and industry know-how that supports SEA-LECT Plastics to stay competitive in this industry. Medical products and applications require perfectly hygienic products with the highest quality and reliability. Milacron continually has solutions designed to meet these high demands in clean room and sterile environments.
Offering attractive and cost effective packaging is a specialty at SEA-LECT Plastics. Our customers require innovative and unique packaging for unique products that need to be noticeable from their competitors while being brought to the market quickly at an affordable cost. Milacron offers economical and reliable results and a combination of part design, material, mold design, machine, hot runner, process control systems, and auxiliary equipment to allow SEA-LECT Plastics to stay ahead of the pack. Our customers utilize thin-wall containers, fluid packaging, various lids, and food storage to compete in a market that requires continually reduced cost to stay profitable.
Based on the various industries and consumer market applications SEA-LECT supports, Milacron technologies are an advantage that we utilize to the best of our ability. If your new design product needs a specialized packaging, exceptional design and development, or a turn-key manufacturer that can reduce costs and stay competitive, SEA-LECT Plastics needs to be your first contact. We specialize in turn-key solutions, molding and assembly, and logistics to deliver your products to your customers.
