Selection of Injection Molding Machine
I am part of new business unit based out of India (Karnataka) getting into manufacturing PET preforms and we need to decide on a good Injection molding machine for producing PET preforms. 1. Quality, 2. Post sale support service and 3. Price are the parameters I am considering. Please advise which make is worth considering. If you have experienced machines from L&T , Chennai OR Ferromatik Milacron India Ltd. please share your experience.
It depends what you want a cost efective, low downtime, tolerance stable, quality control,...
Sipa (ZOPPAS INDUSTRIES) is to be considered as a option. Because is a solution provider and makes a key in hand solution for a proper price. I was selling IMM for 10 years so I intend my self a little bit.
If shorter cycle times, zero maintenance issues and no budget constraints are in mind go for any Japanese or Taiwanese brands. I am not recommending European or American brands since they are price wise quite high and performance wise slightly better than Taiwan. You can also consider Chinese machines if you are strong at maintenance and technical side.
In India you have very tough competition and just for few paisas the buyer shifts ... so keep in mind that in the final analysis the buyer of preform and even if you are the converter.... it doesn't matters on what machine they were made.
