Ian Taylor, Technical Director at TEP talks about his latest investment in big kit from Negri Bossi.
“I am delighted to announce that TEP have completed the acquisition of three large tonnage injection moulding machine from Negri Bossi . These new machines are in the 800T to 2000T range, the 2000T Bi-Power has been installed and commissioned. The 800T and 1300T are scheduled to be delivered to our Rochdale plant by year end.
We approached Negri Bossi back in March to discuss our plans when we saw overall product demand increasing. Over the following few months our teams have been working jointly on developing the right machine specifications to meet our needs for our current and new market sectors. The Two Platen Bi-Power 2000T has a shot capacity of 11.2kg and platens sizes of 2660 x 2260. The 800T and 1300T we opted for are from Negri Bossi’s eVector machine range. They are proven machines and come with Negri’s energy efficient electric screw drive and hydraulic clamping as standard.
Not only do we have one of the best plasticising units available on the market today but we will also reduce our energy costs by around 30%”.
