Our Australian subsidiary has 18 injection moulding machines and a shot weight capacity of nearly 4 kgs. We cater for small and large production runs. Our in-house toolroom can design and manufacture new moulds whilst maintaining existing moulds.
Rella Plastics policy to invest and re-invest in the best of both equipment and people.
Rella cater for a variety of mouldings ranging from small through to large.
Injection Mould Process
Injection Moulding is the process of forcing melted plastic in to a mould cavity. Once the plastic has cooled, the part can be ejected. Injection moulding is often used in mass-production and prototyping. Injection moulding is a relatively new way to manufacture parts. The first injection moulding machines were built in the 1930’s.
Advantages of Injection Moulding:
- High production rates
- High tolerances are repeatable
- Wide range of materials can be used
- Low labour costs
Range of machines:
- 120 Tonne to 650 Tonne
- Robotic technology to speed up cycle times and cut labour cost.
- Range of shot capacity – up to 3500 grams.
Within the range of machines listed, Rella currently run 15 machines with provision to add another 3 machines if and when required.
Rella operates 24 hours per day, minimum 5 day per week (7 days per week if required).
Rella also has 2 x 4 Tonne capacity overhead cranes for ease and flexibility of die changes.
