Malvern-based Talisman Plastics (www.talismanplastics.co.uk
) has invested in an advanced injection moulding cell to support its product development programme for biodegradable and recycled plastic security seals.
The company has opted for a next-generation Haitian Mars 16-tonne injection moulding machine, supplied by Buckinghamshire-based Premier Moulding Machinery Ltd (www.haitian.co.uk
), which will provide major improvements in production flexibility with class-leading energy efficiency and repeatability. The machine uses servo hydraulic technology and is designed to deliver shorter cycle times and very precise tolerances on security seal products.
To create an injection moulding cell capable of the 24/7 production of high quality, precision security seals in a variety of materials and with custom finishes, Talisman Plastics has added a three-axis Sepro robot and a Keyence laser printer.
Talisman Plastics managing director Shaun Champion said: “We have seen a prolonged increase in demand for Talisman specialist security seals in industry sectors including healthcare, retail, and logistics. This investment ensures we have the capacity needed to continue supporting the recent increase in NHS requirements, particularly for products such as our clinical waste seals.
“Flexibility in manufacturing and above-average savings in costs are in demand today more than ever. This investment delivers on these key criteria and provides us with the advanced injection moulding capability necessary to deliver new, high-performance and cost-effective security seal products made from recycled or biodegradable plastics.”
Fi Nanhong, Haitian International chief engineer, said: “The sophisticated design of the injection unit in combination with a powerful servo drive system benefits from independent algorithm modules.
“Thanks to their fast, accurate calculations and highly efficient mathematical models, the stability of the injection process is now much higher, whether for extremely fast or slow injection — the improvement is significant.”
