Hi Jessica, welcome to the latest plastics news from PlastikMedia.
This week's edition features...
recycled white goods
BEC Group are pleased to announce the expansion of their Green Plastics Range to include a variety of up to 100% recycled plastics for the exclusive use of their plastic injection moulding clients. Increasingly customers are looking for viable recycled options for their projects with reliable supply chains and good pricing.
ENGEL machines
Optimising product changeover times is right at the top of the agenda, but this is a complex topic.  A survey conducted by ENGEL shows 73% of all injection moulding processors say that they take more than an hour to change products, and more than half of the respondents need to set up moulds at least once a day.

CNC Robotics was called in to help Plastics 4 Performance free up their highly skilled workforce for more bespoke projects, by automating the existing, all-manual processes in their workshop.
Plastics 4 Performance is the world leading manufacturer in performance motorsport window kits. They produce lexan window kits that weigh 50% less than standard glass windows, which shave off crucial seconds in competitive timed laps.

uddeholm UK team planting trees
Uddeholm UK recently made a commitment to protect the environment, and they have followed through on that promise. On the 25th of March, the team planted 449 trees in Malmesbury’s Cotswolds area as part of the Ecologi programme.
The aim for PlastikConnect is exactly as it sounds, to connect the UK & Irish plastics industries, for our PlastikCity Partners to gain knowledge and work with each other.
Despite the plastics industry being one of the UK’s largest manufacturing sectors, with an annual turnover of £27 billion, we only really gather together one or two times a year at events such as the PIA’s.
A question often asked is whether employee training is a smart investment.
Creating a better working experience through training encourages employees to develop and can also help a business save on expenses/strategy budgets by reducing staff turnover and, subsequently, recruitment costs by onboarding a new employee.
