We’re very pleased with the new injection mould tool racking system we’ve had installed by Rack-Storage(UK) this month.

It has reduced the floor space taken up by our ever increasing library of customer tooling and ensured that we have fast easy access for overhead lifting of all tools.

So you can be sure that your tools are securely stored and are accessible at all times.

Further investment in machinery to expand capacity

Published: December 2013

After receiving frequent enquiries to produce larger plastic parts we have made the decision to expand our capacity and have recently installed another Arburg moulding machine.

The new Arburg 570C Golden machine can produce parts weighing up to 350 grams depending on the material used. It also benefits from an Arburg 3 axis Robot to automate production.

Investment in three new machines

Published: March 2012

To complement the move to the new larger premises we have recently placed orders for the following three new machines.

ALLROUNDER 370S / 700 170 – Following the succesful operation of our existing 370S Arburg, purchased in 2010, this will effectively double our capacity on this size range of machine.
ALLROUNDER 470C / 1500 400 – This larger 150 ton lock machine will allow us release capacity from our existing larger 175 ton lock machine.
BOY 22VV – This vertical injection unit machine is ideal for projects requiring hand loaded overmoulding of parts.
