Ottensteiner Kunststoff was founded in 1977.
Beginning in 1977, Ottensteiner Kunststoff has processed ultra high- and high molecular weight polyethylene in both pressed and machined form. At first only skisoles were produced and a little later finished parts for the food and machining industry.
Our production- and storage facility is now over 18.000 m2 in total situated at two locations with up to 200 employees. Our computer controlled presses have the following press sizes: 2 x 1m (6,56' x 3,28' ft.), 2 x 2 m (6,56' x 6,56' ft.), 4 x 2 m (13,12' x 6,56' ft.), 6 x 2 m (19,69' x 6,56 ft.), 8 x 1 m (26,24' x 3,28' ft.), and a roundpress with 1 m Ø ( dia. 3,28' ft.) and 1,20 m Ø (dia. 3,94' ft.).
We are capable of pressing sheets from thickness 6 - 350 mm (0,24" - 13,78" in.). Our monthly pressproduction capacity is approx. 680 tons (53.500 qt.). In addition to our press facility, we also have a large finishing plant with modern computer aided CNC-turning lathes, and CNC-router machines with a table size up to 2.900 x 1.700 mm (9,51' x 5,58' ft.), as well as profile router machines, table routers, etc.
This enables us to produce even the most complicated finished part acc. to customer specifications. Our polyethylene materials can be used for various applications in many industries where good gliding properties and abrasion resistance is required.
As of midd. 1995, we have started to machine moulded parts made of PVDF and PTFE. Meanwhile these products have developed into our second most important market.
We also process other plastics such as PP, POM, PA etc. About the different fields of application as well as characteristics (mechanical, thermal values, etc..) please request our special brochures.
Our sales split is 60% export and 40% in Germany.
Since March 1996 we are certified with the Quality System: DIN ISO 9001.
