plastics injection moulding machines in a cleanroom
Boddingtons Plastics was seeking to collect fast and accurate production data so they could understand what processes were not performing to the levels they wanted to achieve. Since implementing an Intouch system back in 2019, they have made incredible improvements to their site’s OEE and utilisation.

EFEN GMbH decided to take on the challenge of replacing the ceramic in its NH fuse holders and switches, with LATI’s self-extinguishing thermoplastic compound LATAMID 66 H2 G/50-V0HF1. This project presented many unknowns, but all were brilliantly addressed and overcome thanks to the performance of the LATI compound.

Physical foaming of thermoplastics (MuCell) saves money, energy and resources—and is a multifaceted technology of the future. After intensive development work, KraussMaffei is presenting the new HPS-Physical Foaming universal screw for MuCell applications with 30% higher plasticising performance.
Clamp force is one of the most overlooked portions of the Injection Moulding process.
Available clamp force is the clamp tonnage the machine is capable of. The machine needs to have enough clamp force to hold the mould closed to withstand the plastic pressure that is being developed inside the mould cavities and the cold runner.
When it comes to cooking, having a well-stocked spice rack is essential. However, many people don’t realise that spice racks and jars can be a breeding ground for bacteria.
In this article, we’ll explore how antimicrobial technology can help solve the issues surrounding longevity and cleanliness.
