A UK-based material recycler has ordered a new hydraulic injection moulding machine to its portfolio.
RMG Plascomp has purchased the Systec 160 machine from Sumitomo (SHI) Demag UK.
The machine reportedly offers a good price/performance ratio and a reduction in energy consumption by up to 45 percent.
The Systec 160 is said to boost the capabilities of the company which already says it offers a 24/7 ‘one stop shop’ service for clients who want their products manufactured, packed, stored and distributed by a single provider.
RMG organises and reprocesses discarded plastics into manufacture-ready plastic components and produces a finished item for its customers, all from one location.
Richard Grainger, Managing Director, said: “Our clients like the idea of their plastic components being regenerated from another source, it ensures transparency with regards to product traceability and reduces their carbon footprint.”
Sumitomo Demag’s Central Area Sales Manager, Kevin Heap, added: “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.”
The machine is expected to be delivered in June.
