Injection moulding automation specialist, DB-Automation, has announced the acquisition of feeding systems and automation equipment manufacturer, Premier Bowl Feeders.
This development sees Leicestershire-based DB-Automation acquire the rights to manufacture bowl feeders and associated feeding elements previously made by Premier. Key team members from Premier Bowl Feeders will join the DB-Automation team.
“When DB-Automation approached Premier Bowl feeders it was evident that the quality and workmanship displayed in the equipment manufactured at Premier was exceptional, this aligned perfectly with the beliefs of DB-Automation, that all equipment should be manufactured to the highest possible standards in order for it satisfy completely,” commented Nick Parker, Operations Director at DB-Automation.
DB-Automation says this new division provides the company with a product range that immediately extends the expertise on offer. Now, along with the high speed de-mould and take-out robots it says it can fully integrate equipment for bowl feeding components both for pre- or post- moulding operations, as well as stand-alone feeding systems for all industries including end users and OEMs alike.
The company says plans over the next 12 months for the re-development of the bowl feeding products will see the addition of far more units into the currently strong range.
