Injection moulding receives a healthy boost

Exhibiting for the third time, this time led by a management buy-out team, White Horse Plastics off ers product design and tooling, through to manufacturing, assembly, packing and shipping. Technical injection moulding has

seen the business prosper in the quality-conscious markets of medical, healthcare and automotive as well as helping inventors realise products for consumer markets. This year the team has exported

Award-winning complex sheet metal fabricator, Universal Wolf, works with brand-leading companies across a variety of sectors, from transport and robotics to security and defence. A team of skilled engineers,

fabricators and welders are experts in design for manufacture, working in partnership with customers to ensure products are made to the very highest quality, in the most eff icient way. Sometimes, that can mean challenging an existing design or way of working to ensure a product is the very best it can be. Once the design has been optimised, it is passed to the production department for serial manufacture. A collaborative approach to

working relationships and a focus on the customer experience includes project managers who will guide a project through to execution and account management will provide a trusted and consistent point of contact throughout the product life cycle. Investment in progressive systems

and real-time data analytics allow the company to provide accurate information and share learning with customers, so everyone can benefit from new ways of thinking.

Gearbox options for design freedom

for positioning accuracy, the gearboxes of the alpha basic line, with less than 12 arc minutes are recommended. The CP,

Among the precision gearboxes, couplings, rack and pinion systems, cyber motors and linear/rotary actuators exhibited by Wittenstein, will be the alpha Value Line. This is distinguished with economical and flexible solutions with backlash of less than or equal to eight arc minutes. For example, the planetary and bevel gearboxes of the NP and NPK series as well as the NVS and NVH worm gearboxes are suitable for a wide range of applications thanks to numerous ratios and output versions, says the company. For machines with

medium to low requirements

CPS, CPK, and CPSK planetary and bevel gearboxes as well as the CVS and CVH worm gearboxes combine flexibility on the drive side, with economy, the company adds. The servo gearboxes are

manufactured in Germany and many units off er standard lead times of three weeks or less.
