The first of our two new Negri Bossi Plastic Injection Moulding machines has arrived on-site.
The new machines will significantly broaden our specialist engineering services for both new and existing customers.
The two Negri Bossi plastic injection moulding machines, one 180 tonne and the other 90 tonne, will be used to prove out tools which have been designed and made in-house by our highly skilled CAD design team at Axiom. The new, high-tech injection moulding machines will enable us to manufacture complex plastic components for its automotive and general industrial customers. One of the machines will be dedicated to the production of clear plastics.
The investment of around £160,000 in the new machines is part of the long-term strategy of Axiom Product Development to grow both its existing tooling and machining business as well expand the capabilities of the company into high-tech plastic injection moulding.
Commenting on the new investment, Alan Rendle-Eames, Managing Director noted, “The investment in these new plastic injection moulding machines marks an extremely exciting time for the Axiom business. Following some key new staff appointments and double digit growth over the past six months, the time is right to expand our specialist engineering skills and capabilities. These new plastic injection moulding machines enable us to offer a comprehensive, in-house design, tooling and moulding service. The combination of our highly experienced team and these new machines mean we can offer a very broad range of specialist engineering services for our high tech customers.“
