Plastic Molding Technology Inc. recently invested in new, state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to improve productivity and increase production flexibility. The new presses include three 55-ton all-electric Toshiba presses that replace eight machines that were over 15 years old.
The new energy-efficient presses represent a continued investment in PMT's sustainability initiatives put in place over the past three years. These new presses also offer PMT's staff the flexibility to move quickly from project to project, eliminating long changeover times for molds and increasing the ability to provide JIT service for customers, said PMT's information. PMT's manufacturing infrastructure now includes 27 all-electric presses.
