Kingswinford-based RP Technologies
is the UK's leading manufacturer of complex aluminium injection mould tooling along with prototype and production injection moulded components.
Through precision engineering combined with a wealth of experience, it offers a fast turnaround of mould tooling and low- to medium-volume plastic injection moulded components.
Since the company was founded in 2005, it has equipped its injection moulding facility with ‘state of the art’ Borche machinery. As RP Technologies has grown and developed over the years it has formed a close working relationship with Borche UK
, which has continued to evolve since Borche opened its UK Sales & Service Centre on the Pensnett Trading Estate in the West Midlands in 2018 which is located close to RP’s facility.
Borche is the preferred supplier to global organisations right through to small independent moulding companies.
Part of their relationship sees RP hosting customer visits on behalf of Borche which showcases its injection moulding machines and gives the opportunity to see the equipment and its capabilities in a working environment.
Although prospective customers want to purchase Borche machinery for their own facilities, it gives RP the opportunity to showcase its aluminium tooling which is perfect for prototype and product testing – which organisations use before manufacturing production tooling and moulding parts in-house.
The Borche range of Servo Drive Injection Moulding Machines are being very well received in the UK and Irish market, as they have proven to be very reliable, highly repeatable, and extremely energy efficient.
In RP’s experience Borche IMM’s are extremely precise in terms of shot to shot repeatability and accuracy which is imperative for offering high quality, repeatable moulded components with demanding tolerances and polymers.
RP Technologies have recently acquired several medical customers and see this as a potential area of growth over the coming months. During the recent Covid-19 lockdown, the company was able to support new medical customers by producing tools and mouldings for medical components not only related directly to Covid-19 but also for a wider spectrum of medical devices.
