PMT Adds Cutting-Edge Machinery to its Manufacturing Infrastructure March 18, 2013

EL PASO, TEXAS— Plastic Molding Technology, Inc. (PMT) has again introduced state-of-the-art equipment to its injection molding manufacturing infrastructure with the addition of several new pieces of machinery that can fulfill just-in-time demand.

“The three new Toshiba EC-100SX Electric molding equipment with V50 touch screen controllers will provide greater quality and reliability to operate in a just-in-time supplier environment,” said Charles A. Sholtis, chief executive officer of the company. “Our scheduling flexibility at PMT is part of our focus on using the latest technology to produce quality products, including the IQMS Real Time system.”

The presses, which produce components for automotive and other industrial markets, began production earlier this month.

PMT added auxiliary equipment including the Novatec NovaDrier™ Membrane Resin Dryer, which guarantees -40° dew point process air year round and uses one-third the compressed air of comparable models. Hyrobotics robotic sprue pickers were also installed to handle runner separation in-process.

The new equipment is expected to elevate the already high-quality manufacturing PMT’s client base has grown to expect from the family-owned company.
