April 2020 sees the arrival of a new Boy 90E injection thermoplastic press into the Rochester site. The press is for immediate use to support current order demand, and the sun shone too, thank fully.
Bought to improve our production capability and efficiency, the new machine compliments the existing range of presses.
The Boy press was selected, as they have a long and proven history of providing presses, which have maximum economy, great energy efficiency, reliable quality, and offer good technical support.
In addition, at the time of our order placement, Boy were able to arrange a delivery time which suited our needs. We have some customers, that were classified as essential, who led the fight against Covid 19. These customers are supporting the National Defence, Fire Safety and Security Control.
The Boy E50 press, has improved precision and power consumption. This is required to produce technically demanding mouldings, in highly specified engineering polymers. The press will be running fully automatically 24 hours each day.
The training our technicians received was first class, and enabled the machine to be in full production within 48 hours for being sighted and connected to services.
This press has a quieter operating sound level than previous presses, which has helped us to improve the environment for both employees and visitors, when viewing the facility.
