Moulding Machine Investment at Omega Plastics

The Demag Intelect2 50T moulding machine, our 4th new moulding machine this year, has been delivered today. This machine gives micro moulding capability and comes with two interchangeable barrels (14mm and 22mm), giving flexibility to produce components for high precision applications from less than 1g up to 22g.

The moulding machine follows the investment in the Doosan Puma GT2100 CNC Lathe that was installed in the Toolroom last month, as well as previous moulding machine investments this year which were the Bole 140T, 230T & 520T. The purchases of these machines this year is part of the ongoing investment in the business. The new machine has been specified for complex mould-part designs and includes 2 internal servo driven core pulls, and 2 air cores to give maximum flexibility for moulding from complex designs for tooling.
