Crea s.r.l. specialises in mould design, production, and technical polymer injection moulding. We are a medium-sized enterprise that follows every step required to create an item, from the design and prototyping phase up to the finished product.
What makes us special is the fact that we take care of our clients from the idea of the project, offering possible alternative solutions (in particular, when it comes to the most technical plastic polymers on the market) and we advise them on the best technical and cost saving choices to meet their requirements. Our team follows every idea from the design phase to the construction of the mould, up to the sampling and creation at the moulding department. If necessary, we assemble and pack the various components to deliver a product ready to be launched on the market.
Your mould guaranteed for life
We guarantee our moulds for life without any additional costs. We repair any fault that requires routine maintenance at our mould construction workshop free of charge to ensure a constantly functional mould.
Well begun is half done: the co-design service
This philosophy helps us guarantee our products for life. Based on your idea, we provide a co-design service, helping you design both the item and mould. Together we will meet your requirements, providing the technical guidance to help you choose the best solution possible. A careful design that takes all the pros and cons into account allows us to create an excellent mould in close collaboration with our technical department. We don’t like quick fixes. Goals can be reached in different ways but we aim at following the best one possible.
Put your idea in our hands, and we will put the finished product in yours
We are your one-stop shop at no additional costs. From design to the construction of the mould, and injection moulding using the plastics you choose. We follow every step of the product and, upon request, even the surface finish (tumbling, shot peening, etc.), assembly, and packaging.
Nylon and much more
The world keeps evolving and we evolve with it Plastic is not just nylon. Our production ranges from nylon to new plastic materials or technical polymers, whose features allow us to meet industry and product requirements. We have gained extensive experience in reinforced engineering plastics from glass fibre to carbon fibre, etc.
Visit our materials section to learn more about the plastic we use.
We get involved in first person
We are always available to solve any problem and clarify any doubt you may have, bypassing everlasting phone calls. In case of complaints, we will immediately follow up to assess the cause, find a solution, and document all the corrective actions and relative implementations taken in the production process.
Back in 1986, two industrial technicians decided to collaborate and join their expertise in plastic material moulding and mould production. Crea started off in a basement with a lathe and a small injection press.
A few years later, ′the larger amount of work pushed the owners to move to an industrial building and purchase a machining centre for the construction of moulds, and other two presses for injection moulding.
But this was not meant to be the final stop, as the application of technological innovations, and clients’ growing trust led them to double the working surface, as well as the number of machines, and human resources. Believing in the importance of having an in-house technical department, in 1998 they hired specialised technicians to design moulds for injection moulding.
In 2000, Crea purchased their own plant and they has about thirty employees between the injection moulding department, with seventeen injection moulding machines, and the mechanical workshop, with four CNC Machining centers, electrical discharge machines, and whatever required for the construction of injection moulds.
In 2005, they started working on their quality system, obtaining the ISO 9001:2008 certification in 2012. In 2006, they started collecting the production data to integrate them in the management system.
Another milestone was reached in 2012 when they started using the software they developed internally. This software is still used to trace moulds, collect maintenance data, and record mould use history.
The latest step to improve the quality of the moulds manufactured in their workshop was taken in 2015 when they purchased the 5-axis CNC Machining center.
In 2017, in order to better meet the demands of our customers, an injection machine with a missing tonnage is introduced in the molding department: a press with 400 tons is purchased.
in 2018, the quality management system has been certified by DNV according to the ISO 9001:2015.
The last step, in addition to the insertion of new staff, is the extension of the shed: in fact during the 2018 become operational other 1000 square meters and a new office area will be created.
