250 tonne press boosts elastomer production capacity

James Walker Keaflex : 14 July, 2013  (Company News)
The latest addition to the elastomer production equipment at James Walker Keaflex is a 250 tonne press. The brand new Maplan vertical injection moulding machine will enable the company to reduce cycle times and increase efficiency.
250 tonne press boosts elastomer production capacity

James Walker Keaflex provides a comprehensive service for the design and manufacture of elastomer components, including complex 3D mouldings.

With its state-of-the-art control system, the new machine has a touch screen display and memory settings for parts and operators. Its platen retracts horizontally to assist with loading and removal of moulds, making production quicker and safer. The large platen also allows more cavities in each mould to further increase efficiency.

"This represents a substantial investment for us," said James Walker Keaflex's managing director Andy Tuffield. "The new machine will be particularly useful for larger scale runs."

The £200,000 investment will help satisfy increasing demand and will allow the company to reduce costs and delivery times for its customers.
