New business awards from the automotive and Flat Panel TV customers has meant Sanko Gosei UK Ltd, must revise their previous plans for machine capacity loading and investment plans for the Skelmersdale based site . High demand for large tonnage work over previous years and forecasts for future growth has influenced the decision to invest further in its large tonnage machines . Sanko UK currently has machines ranging from 220 to 3150 ton and has now installed a further 2700 ton injection moulding machine to compliment the current total range of 15 machines . The commissioning of this latest machine will be complete by the end of this week and first production runs are expected to start early next week.
The Husky Quadloc machine is also fitted with :-
Linear Integrated Husky Robot
Modified screw design to allow processing of engineering grade resins
Magnetic plattens ( supplied by Summit Systems )
Upgraded material handling systems ( supplied by Summit Systems )
Twin ICS chillers
Touch Screen Prodution Monitoring System ( supplied by Rhombus Systems Ltd )
The machine , in conjunction with other investments , ammounts to a further £1.5 Million planned investment for the site during its 20th year within the UK.
