Talisman Plastics, a full-service injection moulder based in the UK, has invested in an advanced injection moulding cell to support its product development programme for biodegradable and recycled plastic security seals.
The company produces a broad range of tamper-evident, high-security and bolt barrier seals, as well as tapes and bags. As demand for these products continues to rise, especially in sectors such as healthcare, retail, and logistics, the company made the decision to invest in a new production cell able to operate 24-hours a day.
This led to the purchase of a new generation servo-hydraulic Haitian Mars injection moulding machine, together with a new three-axis Sepro robot and Keyence laser printer.
“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,” explained Shaun Champion, who is the managing director at Talisman Plastics.
The new machine is said to offer a ‘significant’ improvement in the stability of the injection process thanks to intelligent algorithms, optimising the injection process through closed-loop control, without sacrificing speed and pressure.
Designed to deliver shorter cycle times and very precise tolerances, the machine offers efficiency and repeatability “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,” said Champion.
