Plastech provides a complete solution for medical, technical & packaging sectors,identifying machinery, moulds & services best suited to each application, to full aftersales support. All our quality products are designed to maximise output, reduce waste & minimise labour requirements.


Key industries supported include food packaging, medical, healthcare, as well as automotive and multimedia.


Plastech Solutions offer both ultra-high performance, side-entry robots and equipment from Ilsemann Automation, and 3-axis, platen mounted (Cartesian) IML solutions from Star Automation Europe.

ILSEMANN offer various standard solutions for the production of IML products, plastic cutlery, disposable dinnerware, Petri dishes, spray caps, multimedia boxes, etc. Their equipment has a small footprint and can cater for both injection moulding and thermoforming applications. (T-IML) Lateral insertion and takeout systems are consistently designed for top acceleration and traversing speeds. Takeout times shorter than 0.25 sec are achievable, even in the case of multi-cavity stack moulds.

Low-weight carbon fibre end-of-arm tools are custom-designed by specialists and produced in Ilsemann’s in-house carbon fibre design and production unit.

Naturally, these highly dynamic processes are further enhanced with the integration of downstream optical quality inspection, stacking, packaging and palletising where required. STAR AUTOMATION EUROPE has been operating in Europe since 1989. It is a manufacturing and commercial structure taking advantage from the know-how of its Japanese head-office Star Seiki Co. Ltd, the world's largest manufacturer of cartesian robots and automation systems for the injection moulding process.

Our many years' experience in designing and realising specialist automation solutions enables us to offer turn-key projects on customer's specifications. This includes IML applications that don’t require the ultra-high take-out speeds associated with the Ilsemann product range, or where floor space is restricted.


We can provide a complete solution for companies that are in the Packaging, Medical, Caps & Closures, Technical, Automotive and PET market sectors. We supply cost-effective equipment and services which are designed to help you make and save money.

  • Specialist production tooling
  • Process monitoring & total data capture systems

Plastech Solutions provide the UK market with sales, service and spare parts for Ilsemman and STAR products.
