The new EN 200 has been installed at Injection Mouldings in Cheltenham
A Cheltenham-based manufacturer has purchased two Romi EN 200 injection moulding machines in order to facilitate demand as a result of its growing business.
A 21-year old business with on-going growth ambitions, Injection Mouldings diversified about ten years ago from serving only the building supplies trades to a much wider customer base, including many well-known engineering and electronics companies.
It doubled its factory space to 15,000 sq.ft in 2014 to accommodate demand, where it now houses the two machines; the latest Romi EN 200 in the new area and the EN 70 in the established working space.
Steve Rawse, Managing Director of Injection Mouldings, said the 70 tonne Romi was a direct replacement for a similarly sized rival machine but the 200 tonne model bridged a gap between the company’s 150 and 270 tonne models.
He described the machines as very energy efficient and easy to use. “The touch screen user interface is very accessible and well liked by the operators,” he added.
Injection Mouldings has invested about £200,000 with Romi over the past six months and says it is looking to add an even larger 500 tonne machine. It currently operates with 16 injection moulding machines and offers a 24/5 service.
