Anyone who thought that there was no new ground to be broken in injection moulding has clearly never heard of atka.

Precision in plastic – this is atka Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH’s mission statement. Our plastic products are proving their quality and versatility in a steady stream of new areas, while lean processes and a high degree of automation are enabling efficient, flexible and cost-effective production. Besides employing the full range of available materials, including ABS, PA (reinforced and unreinforced), PBT, PC, POM, PP, TPE, various regranulates and bioplastics, there are hardly any limitations on what technologies we can use either. We handle techniques such as thermoplastic injection moulding, multi-component injection moulding (2C), overmoulding inserts, in-mould labelling (IML), gas-assisted injection moulding (GAIM) and many more on a daily basis and thus offer solutions for any requirement, from small batches to series production. We also have production facilities with reduced particle levels at our disposal for sensitive and delicate products.


We offer innovative, cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and allow you to create pioneering, end-to-end solutions for your lasting success. Our production methods are as individual as the products themselves, meaning that we can supply virtually any industry anywhere in the world. We do not shy away from any kind of problem and are also happy to strike out in new directions together with our customers.

With energy efficiency and climate neutrality being the key challenges of our times, we focus resolutely on efficient technologies that promise value for money. Here is an overview of many of the technologies used at atka Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH.



Thermoplastic injection moulding is the most common form of injection moulding. A thermoplastic, or plastomer, is a plastic that, when heated, becomes soft and malleable and then turns liquid. The process is often used for highly precise technical plastic parts with complex geometries. Colouration or painting can be used to achieve virtually any shade, while graining, patterns or engravings can be incorporated directly into the injection moulds.


moulding (2C)

With 2C technology, atka Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH offers a way of injection moulding multi-component parts that promises high structural strength and premium quality and thus enables complex multi-functional parts to be created. All manner of different combinations are possible: for instance, you can combine hard plastics with soft and reinforced plastics with non-adhesive ones or those that have been optimised for low friction.



Overmoulding inserts is another special technique in atka Kunststoffverarbeitung GmbH’s repertoire for making complex components in a single manufacturing step. It involves reinforced and unreinforced plastics being moulded over metallic insert parts, for instance. This creates a particularly strong bond between the metal and plastic parts.


labelling (IML)

In the IML process, “labels” – plastic films that have been cut to size and printed on – are inserted precisely into the injection mould using handling equipment. Once injection moulding is complete, the label and moulded part form an inseparable whole with a consistent surface finish. This means that the moulding and decoration processes are handled in a single work step, eliminating the need to put products in interim storage. As well as saving time and money, therefore, our customers also benefit from a hassle-free recycling process by using exactly the same base material for both product and label.


injection moulding (GAIM)

The GAIM technique takes conventional thermoplastic injection moulding a step further, using an inert gas to create hollow moulded parts. First of all, the parts are either injection moulded in the conventional way or partially filled to a predefined level. We then inject a temporary filler (the inert gas) into the partially filled mould. This filler serves as an inner moulded part in the same way as a die, pushing the melt out from the centre to the outside and thus creating a cavity. Finally, the filler is drained after solidification.


Machining and

As well as the technologies explained above, we also offer a wide range of additional machining and finishing processes after the injection moulding itself. These include module assembly, ultrasound and mirror welding, printing (pad and screen printing), hot embossing, gluing, embossing, laser engraving, bespoke packaging solutions and tailored warehouse management systems such as MAPAL.
