MANAGING THE PROCESS OF INDUSTRIALIZATION HOME / PRODUCTION

Adapt your techniques to an idea, not an idea to your techniques. Bill Bernbach

SPA is a highly-automated company, designed to handle all production levels, using the most modern means of production. The company boasts a full range of moulding machines equipped with all the technologies currently available on the market.

With a production capacity of over 100 million pieces per year, SPA is able to ensure quality and consistency throughout the production stages.

The machinery is equipped with automatic feed systems, and the moulders are equipped with robots for unloading, post-processing, and packaging activities. From small sets created using prototypical equipment to large-scale production created with definitive equipment, SPA turns its versatility into a winning tool.

PLANT CAPABILITIES

SPA integrates a high level of automation into all stages of its injection moulding activities. Upstream this includes the automated management of material sent to machines in the mould shop.

Automated machines equipped with Cartesian robot technologies melt the plastic, inject it into a mould where, after cooling and hardening into the desired shape, it is separated from any waste material and placed on a conveyor belt for automatic packing. The packing process is also controlled by robot technology.

The company’s high level of automation guarantees highest product quality, efficient and effective production control and, consequently, competitive prices and rapid response times.

All temperatures used in the moulding process are subject to rigorous control in order to eliminate the risk of noxious fumes.

Machinery is equipped with dedicated granulators for in situ waste recycling where foreseen by project specifications to limit environmental impact. All waste wherever possible is immediately re-cycled in-house; in rare cases where this is not possible, non usable plastic waste is sent to legally recognised industrial waste processing firms.
