Paul Edwards, Managing Director at Pentagon Plastics, with the new dryers.
Injection moulder, Pentagon Plastics, is one step nearer to completing a major reinvestment programme with the installation of two new materials dryers supplied by Summit Systems.
The Horsham-based manufactuere placed the order for the new rotor wheel dryers following a year’s successful operation of two similar dryers acquired in January 2015.
“The newly acquired dryers form the tail end of a major reinvestment programme which to date has seen investment in excess of £300k over the last two and a half years,” explained Paul Edwards, Managing Director at Pentagon.
“We brought our original two Low Energy Rotor Wheel Dryers because of their energy profile and have been delighted by their performance, and the savings that they have provided. We had no hesitation in purchasing the latest two machines.”
Pentagon Plastics is a family run injection moulding business with over 40 years of trading, serving a wide range of industries from medical and aerospace to construction and security. It currently hosts nine injection moulding machines ranging from 22 tonne to 280 tonne clamp force.
“We are really pleased to support Pentagon with their expansion plans,” commented Simon Woods, Technical Sales Engineer at Summit Systems.
“The Low Energy Rotor Wheel Dryers help them save energy as, when moulding stops, they do too. This, and some other energy saving features, save between 35 and 65 percent energy when compared to twin bed desiccant dryers, typically £10,000 per year.”
