New Injection Molding Machines
Pyramid Plastics, a division of Pyramid Molding Group, has completed phase one of its three-year plan to expand its operations with the purchase of three new injection molding machines plus additional auxiliary equipment.
The bulk of the investment includes the purchase of three new LSMtron the ONE injection molding machines: two Series 1000-ton machines and one Series 500-ton machine. All three machines are equipped with smart factory features that will help usher Pyramid’s molding operations into the realm of Industry 4.0 for even more efficient, comprehensive project management.
“The smart features on these hybrid servo-hydraulic machines will allow us to monitor processes in real time and gather valuable data that we can use to improve part quality and consistency as well as reduce cycle times,” Chase McNitt, Plant Manager, says. “This is the future of our industry, and we want to make sure we are maintaining and improving on industry standards.
“We anticipate improving cycle times as well as reducing our energy costs,” he adds.
According to Tim Peterson, President, another objective is to offer new, larger molding capabilities to customers in the automotive, medical, aerospace, defense, consumer, and industrial products industries. “We have typically built and run mostly small to mid-sized molds, and very successfully through the years,” he says. “Based on new market opportunities and the needs of our current customers we’re evolving and expanding our resources with new, smart technologies and a larger manufacturing footprint.”
Pyramid Plastics has increased its production floor square footage by 12 percent to accommodate the new molding machines. In addition, a new Konecranes overhead crane—one 7.5, has been installed to aid in production. Peterson says the company is also looking to build its team this year and is recruiting from within and outside the manufacturing industry.
