Elmia Subcontractor 2018 is now behind us and we thank everyone who had the opportunity to visit us in our stand. The Weland Group had created a wonderful environment with a good vibe that showed what we are all about. Here we also offered an AR experience, an augmented reality where a constructed model integrated with an iPad displayed how products from the Weland Group are used in the world around you.
If you did not have the opportunity to come to Jönköping this year, you can still experience our exhibition stand. Weland has, together with BIMobject AB, created an interactive VR-model of Weland's booth at Elmia Subcontractor. Clicking the link enables you to walk around our booth and experience the wide range of products and services offered by the Weland Group.
Weland Plastic is an expansive full-service company within thermoplastics with its own resources from idea to finished product. Today, we have two production units in Smålandsstenar, Sweden, with some 60 injection moulding machines in the range 20 to 1000 tonnes clamping force, our own dedicated tool department, vibration welder and measurement department. To provide the best possible quality, the company is quality certified according to IATF 16949 and environmentally certified according to ISO 14001.
The change of name is one step towards increasing the awareness of the fact that we are a part of the Weland Group, which is a family owned Group with its head office in Smålandsstenar. Today, the Group includes some 30 production units in the steel, aluminium and plastics industries with an annual turnover of approx. SEK 2 billion.
In June two new injection moulding machines arrive for Weland Plastic's already powerful fleet of equipment: one machine with a clamping force of 300 metric tonnes and one with a clamping force of 500 metric tonnes. With the newly purchased machines, Weland Plastic can increase the production capacity, while ensuring it can meet an increased demand.
For Weland Plastic it is always important to satisfy the customer's needs and to maintain its short delivery times. With even more machines and greater production capacity, Weland Plastic is equipped for the future and ready for even more projects.
Weland Plastic is now supplementing its fleet of equipment with yet another giant – an Engel, with a clamping force of 1000 metric tonnes. The new injection moulding machine is perfect for manufacturing large and complex items, which are often to be found in the automotive industry.
It can also produce items unmanned, guaranteeing a cost-efficient production for the customer. The machine has a clamping force of 1000 metric tonnes, with associated full servo robot, and a seven-metre-long Z-axis for handling an advanced packaging cell.
