At Littlestar, we work with a vast array of plastics, but we specialize in molding and machining performance plastics. These are not your typical lunch boxes, plastic bottles and toys. Performance polymers such as polyamide-imide and polyetheretherketone are used in specialized situations for instance when performing in extreme temperatures, resistance to wear, or tolerance to chemicals is critical.
Our investment in the Markforged X7 3D printer is just one of the ways we deliver the best possible quality at the best possible price.

Companies choose Littlestar Plastics for many reasons. Some choose Littlestar because we can produce functional prototypes used to develop revolutionary new aircraft components. Others choose Littlestar because we can machine components out of high performance polymers like Torlon and Glass Filled Peek (GF PEEK) that were only previously possible with heavier and more costly metals. But, companies return to Littlestar because of our relentless focus on helping them exceed their goals.
