Our moulding service was first established in 1972 and is the core of the business. We operate in a 6,500 sq. ft. purpose built area in our facility in Horsham to meet the demands of our extensive customer base.
The facility is manned by our competent, experienced and fully trained staff. They deliver operator and fully automatic production solutions as well as limited over-moulding capabilities.
Our mould shop is ISO9001 accredited and offers a comprehensive range of 10 modern plastic injection moulding machines, maintained to a high standard from 22 tonne to 280 tonne clamp force. This allows us to mould shot weights from 0.5 gram up to approx. 550 grams subject to the thermoplastic being processed. The size of product can therefore range from a very small component up to an approximate size of 400mm². The range of machines has been purposely stepped closely in size to assist scheduling. This is so we can provide the best possible service on delivery. When building the tooling, we also ensure that the moulds can fit more than one of our machines wherever possible to further assist this process.
We mould virtually all types of prime grade thermoplastics, especially high engineering materials including filled and unfilled grades with or without additional additives. Manufacturing is controlled by our full Supply Chain system providing full visibility through the production process with fully detailed Bill of Materials and operational Routings for each individual component.
Our quality standards are maintained by following a dedicated quality plan for every job processed. The inspectors complete First Article Inspection Reports to gain approval and set ongoing quality requirements with the customer at the initial product approval stage. Quality is then maintained in production through first off control checks, in process monitoring and final release sign off.
Plastic injection moulding is the core of our business and we pride ourselves on being able to supply technical mouldings to a wide range of industry sectors.
