The global injection moulding manufacturing group, Fibrax, is continuing to invest substantially in its production capabilities to support its strategic growth strategy.
Part of the Fibrax Group of Companies, which operates in the UK, Poland and Morocco, Fibrax Limited has invested in two Engel Victory machines with tie-bar-less technology, to increase the company’s plastic moulding capacity at its facility in Wrexham, North Wales.
The modular Engel Victory is ideal for a wide range of technical plastic mouldings. With its tie-bar-less technology, the Victory provides more flexibility and greater efficiency than traditional injection moulding machines.
Fibrax operates a range of injection moulding machine sizes, including 30 to 560 tonnes for rubber and 50 to 450 tonnes for plastic, enabling the manufacturer to meet an extensive variety of needs. The company also specialises in precision over-moulding of multi-part components and offers a multi-component assembly services for sub-assemblies and completed products.
Commenting on the decision to invest in two Engel Victory machines, Rob Winterbottom, Fibrax’s Technical Sales Director, said:
“Engel is well known for creating machinery of the highest quality, developed using the latest technologies. Their integrated systems have been designed to drive efficiencies without restricting mould functions or performance. By investing in the 50 and 120 tonne Engel Victory machines, we can extend our UK manufacturing capabilities, whilst harnessing greater control of smaller shot weight tools. The tie-bar-less technology complements our continual improvement strategy, as we are able to drive greater efficiencies in the future. “
This investment is part of the company’s sustainable growth strategy. 2018 will see the installation of a range of advanced technical equipment aimed at streamlining manufacturing processes, implementing efficiencies and optimising performance.
Fibrax recently announced the opening of its new manufacturing facility in Morocco, which will trade as Morocco Precision Mouldings and serve the global automotive supply chain.
