Business Blooms at Aeroplas With the Help of ENGEL UK

West Bromwich-based injection moulder Aeroplas is benefitting from the nation’s recent uptake in gardening and increased need for horticultural products such as flower pots and containers, with reports that the market for its core range is soaring, and ENGEL machines are helping Aeroplas meet the demand.

Aeroplas has recently invested in an e-speed injection moulding machine, one of ENGEL’s fastest models, which is providing the company with short cycle times, improved efficiency and perfect cleanliness. All the system components withstand the most exacting demands and are thus ideally suited for intensive use in the packaging industry, which has made it an ideal choice for Aeroplas.

Discussing the recent purchase, Jas Gakhal at Aeroplas said:

We already had several ENGEL machines supporting other product lines, but this is our first thin-wall, fast cycling machine.

“The increase in demand for our horticultural products made it necessary to purchase a new injection moulding machine of this calibre to ensure that we were able to fulfil all of our orders within the timescales required. ENGEL UK was able to propose a reliable machine capable of achieving a fast cycle time, backed up with the ability to support us in both sales and service.”

ENGEL UK will be assisting Aeroplas with the implementation of IQ weight control, an optional feature on the machine that will ensure shot to shot process stability, reduced scrap rate, faster ramp-up after machine standstill and reliable high part quality. It also boosts energy efficiency. This technology will make the process independent of environmental conditions that cannot otherwise be controlled – an important factor as viscosity fluctuations in raw materials and changes in ambient conditions can substantially impair the quality of moulded parts.

Jas concluded: “With support from ENGEL, we are looking forward to exploring the IQ weight control and the potential benefits this technology can bring to our moulding process.

ENGEL UK has a great core team in place to back us up in both sales and service – you rarely get this particular level of support.”
