Maplan Rapid+460

Earlier this year, VIP-Polymers decided to invest in increasing production capacity, whilst reducing energy costs.

An order was placed with MAPLAN for 3 state-of-the-art RAPID+460 Automated Injection Moulding Machines.

As with most things these past 12 months, there were delays due to delays in components/materials needed to manufacture these machines, but VIP is pleased to announce that they have taken delivery of the new machines.

Not the most ideal days to take delivery, after a heavy snowfall Sunday evening and below-freezing temperatures for unloading 3 trucks first thing on a Monday morning.  With the snow cleared to allow access for the Crane and trucks the job of unloading was underway.

The machines are now in situ, in a brand new production cell in the factory, installed and ready for setting up and calibration in the new year, ready to run full production by the end of January.

This is a great way to start VIP’s 100th Year.
