MGS Technical Plastics has invested £530,000 in its biggest machine to date.
The KraussMaffei KM900 is a dual platen machine with a 900 tonne capacity, allowing the Blackburn-based plastic injection moulding specialist to work with bigger parts than ever before.
The new purchase is scheduled for delivery in August. It replaces MGS's 800 tonne model, bringing increased capacity, efficiency and quality levels. The KM900 is more efficient than previous equipment, with a short dry cycle time of just 2.3 seconds.
