With a fleet of over 60 Injection Mould Machines ranging from 50ton to 900 ton housed in a purpose constructed 130,000sq ft facility on a 6 acre site we can offer our customers a completely flexible Injection Moulding Solution.
Operating a shift system of 5.5 days per week our production floor work tirelessly for our customers backed up and supported by our own in-house maintenance team. Preventative maintenance is the order here as we strive for Lean Manufacturing and maximum efficiency.
The department has an impressive record of successful audits and assessments and we believe is now World Class. Such operations require high levels of investment and our production department is no exception benefiting from some of the most advanced Injection Moulding machines in the world today.
Supplying many blue chip clients we welcome any enquiry with vigour and enthusiasm as a chance to demonstrate our capabilities to customers’ both existing and new.
In this short video, our Production Manager, Danny Cashin, explains the benefits of a modern injection moulding facility.
Plastic Moulding Materials
P & R uses in excess of 25 polymer raw materials in its production. We have at least 60 mould presses in operation at any one time which means material supply is key to the efficiency of our processes.
To optimise this, a sophisticated material handling system feeds each machine with the correct formulation blown direct from silos. The silos are connected to monitoring systems which allow the team to assess stock levels and arrange deliveries accordingly.
These handling systems mean raw materials are not found on the factory floor. This reduces the hazard of split bags, increases production floor space and improves safety and efficiencies all round.
P&R processes a multitude of raw materials but the most common fall into the following groups:
PBT- Polybutylene Terephthalate
PET – Polyethylene Terephthalate
HIPS – Hi Impact Polystyrene
PP – Polypropylene
PC – Polycarbonate
PA – Nylon
ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene
