On 26 May 2015, Marley Pipe Systems proudly received a brand new Sumitomo Demag Systec moulding machine which will replace the old 900 tonne Supermaster to produce plastic pipe fittings. At 1000 tonnes, this is the largest injection moulding machine that has ever set foot on our premises.
The riggers started to move the machine into the Moulders Department on 27 May 2015 and alterations were made to ensure that the conveyor system was able to accommodate the new machine in terms of moving moulded fittings from under the machine to a sorting bin for operator handling.
We are happy to report that the machine is now up and running and will produce the following fittings to support our range of products for PVC drainage systems.
- UYR41 (new 4 cavity mould)
- UBR41 (new 2 cavity mould)
- UBR42 (new 2 cavity mould)
