Our Process in Plastics

Material feed
Plastic granules are stored in silos before feeding drying machines when needed

A vacuum system transports the granules to machine hoppers
Injection moulding machines
Plastic is passed through a heated barrel where it becomes molten

It is then injected into a die mould

Formed bumpers are removed using a robot
Part transfer to next process
The moulded bumper is fed to a loading station and into a stillage

Stillage is transported to a loading lane and onto Paint Shop
