Romi EN 300 injection moulding machine
A UK trade moulder has purchased two new Romi injection moulding machines as it looks to achieve greater process control as well as reducing energy usage.
Suffolk-based Skar Precision Mouldings invested in a Romi EN 300 and an EN 70 model as direct replacements for two existing machines to produce a range of components components for sectors that include medical, engineering, point of sale and retail.
“Seven of our 40 plus machines are Romi models and we know the machines will do what they say they will do and that they are robust and will work across a wide range of thermoplastic materials,” commented Paul Denny, Operations Director at Skar.
“The two new machines replace a 1986 Sandretto and an ageing Arburg and will give us greater control and reduce our energy usage. The capital cost and running costs were very convincing.”
The Romi EN series comes in models ranging from 70 to 2000 tonnes and features Siemens servo pump system. Romi says the range is popular because of high uptime, good repeatability and low energy consumption.
