The company installed a new Borche 150 ton machine last year and added a further new 200 ton machine earlier this year and the new BU600 was selected on the strength of the performance and reliability of the existing Borche machines experienced to date.

The new Borche BU600 is of the Two Platen design and therefore is very compact in terms of footprint and is extremely energy efficient as a result of the Servo drive system.

Plastic Supplies – Dudley

PLASTIC SUPPLIES DUDLEY SAVE WITH BORCHE

 

Plastic Supplies Dudley the Brierley Hill based Moulder have invested in a new Borche BS260 ton machine to meet increasing demand

Whilst the companies order book continues to grow this investment decision was also very much influenced by the necessity to improve the production efficiency of the factory and reduce production costs where possible.

The company had one of their existing older machine broken down and were faced with another potential costly repair, instead of this the management decided to replace the machine and invest in a new Borche Servo driven machine.

Following the installation of the new Borche BS Servo controlled machine as a direct replacement of the existing machine of old fixed pump design the companies monthly electricity bill has reduced by a staggering £4,200 per month thus this investment has proved to be fully self-funded with a payback period of less than 14 months.

Plastic Supplies Dudley are a family run business established in 1969, the company have a range of injection moulding machines up to and including 480 ton and manufacture both in house product together with a range of components to various industrial sectors including construction, heating and ventilation, leisure and automotive amongst others.

 

“ we are delighted with our decision to install the new Borche and in particular with the savings in our monthly electricity costs that have been made as a result, we would not hesitate to make the same decision again in the future” Tim Loverock , Managing Director

Naylor Group

NAYLOR CHOOSE BORCHE

 

Naylor Drainage Ltd, a subsidiary of Naylor Industries plc, has made a further investment in the company’s in-house plastics moulding division by installing its first Borche 500t machine.

Naylor is a 4th generation family business founded in 1890, which manufactures a wide range of drainage products in both plastic and clay for supply to the building and civil engineering industries. The Naylor group has a current turnover of some £50m, employs 380 people and has six UK manufacturing sites- half in the Barnsley area, the others in Cheshire, Scotland and the West Midlands. The Naylor group is also an active exporter, with sales onto every continent and into 65 different markets.

Naylor’s in-house moulding facility already houses five existing moulders up to and including 440 tonnes; these use 100% recycled polypropylene to manufacture various products for Naylor’s clay and plastics divisions. The new Borche moulder will be used to produce connectors, access chambers and a new range of environmental components.

This further investment by the company was made to increase efficiency in the manufacturing process and create additional production capacity to support Naylor’s sales growth. Equally however, the Naylor group is very aware of its wider environmental responsibilities and investing in the new Borche 500t machine meets both objectives for the company. The machine’s energy efficiency is attributable to the servo controlled hydraulics which result in a dramatic reduction in electricity consumption and cooling requirement as compared to older existing machines.

Mark Grimes, Naylor’s injection moulding manager commented: “We evaluated a number of machines and suppliers before selecting Borche. The combination of a high spec machine together with excellent service and technical support and massive savings on energy reductions finalised the deal. The machine was delivered on time and we have been delighted with the performance to date”

Naylor are currently evaluating further investment in terms of plant and facilities in anticipation of further growth in 2016.

Injectaplas

INJECTAPLAS POWERS ON WITH BORCHE

 

Injectaplas have ordered a suite of seven new Borche machines to replace the company’s existing range of sandretto’s.

One of the key drivers in making this investment was to do with energy saving as the company have a very limited power supply to site.

Upon the installation of the first two Borche machines, Chris Whelan the managing director was astounded by the reduced level of power consumption and soon concluded that he would be able to run additional machines on the existing power supply and thus boost the company’s production capacity at a far reduced energy cost per component.

Injectaplas is a family run business based in rugeley in which has been established for 25 years, the company specialise in the manufacture of plastic wheels in high viscosity nylon, polypropylene and polyurethane and supply various industrial sectors including food, retail, furniture and transport with current customers including Eurostar, Silent Night, Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencer, Mains Gas amongst many others.

The package of Borche machines represent the main part of the company’s £500,000 investment in the business to boost production capacity and production efficiency.

Injectaplas fully evaluated and considered a number of potential machinery suppliers over many months before ultimately selecting Borche

“we selected Borche over and above a number of competitors on the basis of the energy efficiency of the machines together with the excellent service support from Borche UK in Droitwich and we are confident that we have made the correct decision”

Agema Engineering – Coventry

A new 2200 tonne injection moulding machine from Chinese manufacturer Borche has pride of place in a major expansion by Coventry-based Agema Engineering, intended to meet growing demand from the UK automotive sector.

The machine, the largest supplied into the UK from China, sits alongside five other new Borche machines, including 1200 and 800 tonners, in a newly fitted out facility, the company’s sixth in the Bedworth area. The larger machines, fitted with rotary platens and secondary injection units, will carry out multicomponent moulding on large auto components and are two platen models with auto tie bar removal for low level tool loading, while the three smaller models are toggle lock.

Agema Engineering, established by former toolmaker John Stringer in the 80s, has enjoyed dramatic five-fold growth in recent years with turnover now exceeding £16m and a workforce of more than 120. Confident of the firm’s ability to win new business, Stringer has overseen an investment programme totalling some £10m in the past three years, with Borche machines, supplied through agent Droitwich-based Plastic Machinery Sales, at its heart.

“Agema purchased the first Borche machine over three years ago and now have over 20; we have found the machines to be very reliable consistent and extremely energy efficient,” Stringer says. Analysis of the machines’ energy usage shows dramatic improvements over the firm’s older equipment, attributed to the servo driven pump system employed, which also offers lower noise and cooling requirements. Borche itself claims outstanding savings on energy consumption with machine prices up to 40% below comparable European-made equipment.

Combining toolmaking with a wide range of injection moulding, Agema is a Tier One supplier with capabilities spanning wood veneer back moulding, carpet back moulding and both over moulding and 2K moulding across a range of materials including highly glass filled nylons. The company supplies a range of interior and exterior parts as well as demanding under-bonnet components.

According to Terry O’Reilly of PMS,( Sales Director) Borche has capacity of some 800 machines a month from its two Chinese plants which have impressed Stringer, who is chairman of Agema with son Jonathon as managing director.

When PRW visited the company recently, commissioning of the equipment, which employs sophisticated Keba control systems and will be deployed with six axis robots, was underway. The new facility is expected to open this month.

Agema’s automotive customers are typically at the prestige level and the company also supplies mouldings for motor cycles.
