When you choose Star Plastic as your supplier, you gain the additional benefits of these unique, high-value services.
Star Plastic specializes in custom thermoforming of blisters, clamshells, trays and tray lids to precise customer specifications. Complete design, tooling, expert problem solving and fast turnarounds are only part of the total services we offer to our customers.
We form flocked and metalized material, PET, PLA, PE, PVC, PS and ABS. From 7 mil to 70 mil in any color or texture. Special materials add an extra measure of elegance to your display packaging for a lasting impression.
The flexibility of our 12 thermoforming machines enables us to turn jobs in a matter of days or hours. It is not uncommon for a customer to call us in a bind and ask us for the job that same day or the next. We can often accommodate these requests.
LOW VOLUME ECONOMIES
Our equipment mix and lower set-up times, allows us to run small jobs much more economically than many traditional in-line thermoformers. Off line set-ups can often be performed in minutes allowing multiple jobs to be completed in a single shift.
USE OF YOUR TOOLING
Star Plastic is able to take your existing tooling and tailor it to run on our equipment. This capability is rare among thermoformers, it can mean a substantial savings to avoid the cost of new tooling design and fabrication.
DEEP DRAW THERMOFORMING
We're able to form 70 mil high-impact polystyrene, 6-1/2 inches deep and greater for larger, taller display trays and specialty applications. We can also form and inline cut large clamshells for products requiring a deep shell.
We stock various flocked materials used for imparting a high sheen or velvety surface texture. These add sophistication and elegance to your packaging or display.
AUTOMATED EDGE FOLD
Our automated (slide blister) edge fold and card insertion machine, offers an environmentally responsible process with easy source separation and segregation for efficient plastic and paperboard recycling.
LONG RUN CAPABILITIES
Our larger format machines routinely meet requests for hundreds of thousands and even millions of blisters or clamshells. Running fast equipment on two shifts with inline cutting, we're able to meet and surpass our customer's finished part usage requirements.
IN HOUSE TOOL DESIGN
In house tooling design, CNC prototyping, plus both small and large thermoforming machines coupled with tool size flexibility, mean better economics for our customers. This combination allows us to meet your changing needs and add value to your organization.
We can combine multiple customers on a single run several times a month. Reducing cost significantly compared to a dedicated tool. The sharing of the set up and operation on a combo run allows you to source your clamshells or blisters in the most economical manner.
