Fernplas name change, invests in injection moulding capabilities
Fernplas Plastic Engineering is the new name given to the company formerly called Scottlamp Ltd that is based in Alton, Hampshire, UK. The name change is part of the many exciting changes at the Alton site following the takeover of the business by the Fern-Howard group on the 1st July 2010.
At the heart of Fernplas is a state of the art injection moulding shop which can produce mouldings from a range of presses 35 tonne right up to 700 tonne.
Unique to Fernplas is the UK sub-contract services of this Formed-In-Place-Foam-Gasket using the Sonderhoff process. Where we are able to robotically place a Polyurethane seal that attaches to the base unit hence making it a fixed gasket.
This process can be complementary to plastic parts that we have moulded or as a pure sub-contract service on your parts be this plastic, metal, etc. This growing area of business has required us to invest in a second machine which has just been installed and commissioned at Alton. This will allow us offer a wider range of services due to the table size and the flow rates this machine can offer. This shows a further major investment by Fern Howard Ltd in the newly-acquired Alton moulding division.
On site we have a fully equipped in-house tooling facility using the latest CAD/CAM technologies. Being in house gives us the full control of your project hence ensuring that it remains fully controlled. Our engineering team take into consideration all the processing requirements of the material specified to produce tooling of the very highest standards.
We can help you win with UK manufacturing.
