RP Technologies invests to enhance tool room & injection moulding capacity

Wednesday, Jun 14, 2017

As part of RP Technologies’ ongoing investment and expansion plans they have invested £120,000 and purchased two new machines. The company have purchased an impressive Hurco VMX30i CNC machining centre and a Borche 120 tonne injection moulding machine to add to their already impressive suite of machinery in their West Midlands based facility. They have also employed 4 additional members of staff which will improve their current capabilities and lead times.

The Hurco VMX30i is one of Hurco’s signature milling centres that takes machining to the next level. This machine delivers high performance capabilities to any machining application and has the added benefit of a dual-screen control which streamlines programming.

The Borche 120 tonne machine will add to their suite of injection moulding machines which are all energy efficient giving up to 80% power savings compared to conventional machinery.

The investment in new machinery will increase the capacity and productivity in the tool room and injection moulding facility. Over the last five years RP Technologies have continued to grow and invest in new machinery to keep up with the increasing demand from both new and existing customers.

The company have also taken on 4 new employees; a Tool Design Engineer, 2 Injection Moulding Operators and a trainee CAD/CAM Engineer.

RP Technologies are forecasting further investment later this year and plan to purchase additional injection moulding machines, a mould flow analysis package and software to streamline their order processing systems. They also have plans to employee additional sales, engineering and manufacturing staff within the company.
