Manufacturing Equipment

Injection moulding machines (20 units) ranging from 30-175 Ton, and from 3 Oz. (85 gram) to 8 Oz. (227 gram) shot size. Typical outputs range from 120 to 1200 pieces per hour. The equipment is supported by a maintenance department, which has "in-house" capabilities to repair moulds and rebuild machinery, including complete installation of PLC's (Programmable Logic Controllers). In our shop you will find the equipment common to most repair facilities; such as lathes, surface grinders, drill presses, and vertical milling machines. Further specialised equipment is available to repair hydraulic components.


Our operations consist of various injection molding machines capable of creating our numerous terminal insulation products. Our machines are able to create product in many material options, to satisfy industrial needs and standards. Most of our product can be created in (15) colors, including clear. Should the need arise, our engineering staff can custom engineer a solution to fit your needs, either by re-engineering an existing solution, or creating a whole new model from scratch.

Over the last few years, we've grown to include electro-mechanical items, such as power distribution posts, power bushings, lug and ring terminals, fuses and fuse holders. Our electro-mechanical products are engineered to work with our terminal insulators to ensure product protection, user protection and standards compliance. Look through our web site, request a catalog, or give us a call to see how our product line can create a solution to fit your needs.
