TECHNOLOGY

To offer our services, Betaplast has the next technologies:

Engineering: Through our technical office, working with advanced tools and specialist staff.

Injection Molding. In Betaplast, we base our production on injection molding. This system consists in the injection of melted polymer in a closed mold, which is pressurized and it has less temperature, through a hole called “gate”. In this mold, the material solidifies, and the plastic gets the desired shape. The final product is obtained by the mold opening and taking out from the cavity the molded piece.

We have modern machinery to offer the best quality and service. The principal materials we work are: PP, PS, PE.

Thermoforming: The process of thermoforming we carry out in Betaplast consist in heating a plastic foil until its softening and then, forcing it against the mold walls.

We use this process for the production of different trays with cavities with the shape of vials and ampoules where the product is housed. By this way, it is possible to show and protect it of hits during transport or manipulation operations. Also, we make trays for food market.

We have high throughput machines and maximum precision. We work both monolayer and multilayer materials, allowing us by this way to offer barrier properties products. We work principally with: PP, PS, PET, PET-PE, PP-EVOH-PP, etc.

-High Frequency Plastic Welding. In Betaplast, we offer products made by high frequency welding. The materials used are principally PVC and PET, because they are polar plastics, the most suitable for this process.

To carry out the welding of the plastic films, the joint zone is heated up to the melting point and pressure is applied at the same time. By this technology, the plastic portion between the electrode (die mould) and the table undergoes an uniform heating due to the dielectric losses developed on it by the high frequency current (27,12 MHz)

By this technology it is possible to produce blisters or another type of products which two or more plastic foils joined are required, for example the inoculator made by Betaplast.
