Thormac to Launch Process Expertise at Interplas 2017
Thormac, one of Ireland’s leading injection moulders, will exhibit at the UK’s leading plastics event Interplas September 26th – 28th 2017. The company will present its capabilities in complex technical moulding, including insert and hybrid moulding and work with Organo sheet materials.
Director Sean Ryan says that ‘we are more than looking forward to Interplas 2017 and the opportunity to demonstrate our technical credentials to buyers and specifiers in the UK. In particular, Thormac has many solutions to offer the automotive and aerospace industries in the design and production of lightweight mouldings.’
Wittmann Battenfeld technology has been playing its part in producing the latest Thormac Organo-based products. A MacroPower 350 moulding machine is at the heart of the latest Organo-based production which, according to Ryan, offers many advantages over conventional thermoset or thermoplastic production. ‘Shorter cycle times, weight reduction and reduced wall thickness are some of the many benefits of fiber based moulding that Thormac will be showing at Interplas 2017,’ adds Ryan.
Thormac has been manufacturing in Shannon, Ireland since 1979. The management team of Maurice McLernon, Sean Ryan and David Foley completed an MBO of the company in February 2015.
The business has been steadily investing in Wittmann Battenfeld moulding technology, specialising in plastic design, prototyping, large part moulding and value added services, with particular expertise in the manufacture of low to medium volume precision components to a wide range of industries.
The company’s 40,000sq. ft. manufacturing facility is located near Shannon Airport and is easily accessible on the national motorway network. The facilities include a clean room and 19 machines ranging from 25 tonne to 1100 tonne locking force.
Thormac manufactures in a diverse range of engineering materials including silicone, PA66, PA6, PC, PVC, PMMA, TPU, PBT, Valox and LMP Compound. Technical support and capability has been key to Thormac’s growth, developing a portfolio in the manufacturing of large parts, compression mouldings and anti-static coatings. A workforce of over 40 operators, technicians, designers and project managers helps provide an ‘end to end’ service from design through to finishing.
