Midlands-based RMG Plascomp – a pioneer of material recycling and re-manufacturing – has ordered a Systec 160 hydraulic injection moulding machine from Sumitomo (SHI) Demag UK.
Described as ‘the all-round processer of plastics for every sector’ and ‘suitable for practically any production job’, the Systec 160 will boost the capabilities of this firm which already offers a 24/7 ‘one stop shop’ service for clients wanting their products manufactured, packed, stored and distributed globally by a single provider.
For businesses keen to boost their green credentials, RMG likens itself to a ‘closed loop recycling station’. It can organise and re-process discarded plastics into manufacture-ready plastic components and produce the finished item, all from one location.
Managing Director, Richard Grainger, comments: "Our clients like the idea of their plastic components being regenerated from another source, it ensures transparency re; product traceability and reduces their carbon footprint."
Regardless of clients’ needs; whether recycling and re-manufacturing, or simply manufacturing from new, Richard advises the versatility of the single-shot Systec 160, due for delivery in June, will enable his firm to instantly react to styling changes and market demands.
Sumitomo Demag Central Area Sales Manager, Kevin Heap, confirms: "It’s incredibly flexible; accommodating any number of injection moulding variations. The short cycle times and high degrees of precision ensures it delivers maximum efficiency with a superb price/performance ratio and our servo-pump option reduces energy consumption by up to 45%."
