ONE of the UK’s leading manufacturers of injection moulded components has installed the latest in a series of machines which sees its combined investment in equipment total almost half a million pounds in 18 months.
Wakefield based PolyGlobal, who export to more than 15 different countries, has taken delivery of three new injection moulding machines plus a suite of other equipment as part of its drive to broaden its capabilities, boost capacity, increase efficiency and reduce energy costs.
The majority of the investment, more than £200K has been spent on three new injection moulding machines, one Boy 90E and two Tedric machines (450T & 80T) which has increased the Thornes Lane firm’s capacity in injection moulding, The introduction of a Hurco VMX30T Vertical Machining Centre has given PolyGlobal increased capacity and technical capability in their toolmaking department.
The latest machines follow the installation of a Covestro Baule Dispensing Machine in 2018 and a 3D printer earlier this year, which enables PolyGlobal to provide a faster, more cost-effective prototyping service for smaller projects.
Andy Young Marketing Manager, says “PolyGlobal is recognised for providing high quality bespoke injection moulded parts for critical industries. Our ambition is to expand our global reach and the range of sectors we operate in, to do that we continually need to broaden our capabilities and improve efficiencies.
“The investment in new machinery boosts our efficiencies and improves our environmental credentials which is important for our customers.”
“We are already experiencing the benefits of our investments in terms of capacity and quality of finished goods. Moving forwards this machinery will allow us to manufacture moulds and finished components that previously were out of reach for our business, further extending the breadth of our offering to our customers.”
The total investment into new machinery by PolyGlobal is £461K, some of which has replaced existing equipment.
