Moulding & Insert Moulding

We are experts in different types of moulding including plastic injection moulding and insert moulding. We are also specialists in low pressure moulding.

Injection moulding

Our injection moulding plant comprises of Arburg, Engel and Babyplast horizontal machines from 6 – 220 tonnes with 2 shot, vertical and rotary table machines up to 100 tonnes for insert moulding. Within the group we have machines up to 1100 tonnes.

Using robot load and unload systems combined with part-specific jigs and fixtures we can manufacture high-volume moulded components in the most cost-effective manner.

Low pressure moulding

This is a process that uses thermoplastic polyamides injected at low temperature and low pressure. This process is used to encapsulate and environmentally protect electronic components and connectors, it is also used for sealing connectors and to create strain relief on cables and wires.
