Weland Plastic wishes all of its customers and suppliers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are now going on a well-deserved holiday and we are looking forward to an exciting 2021, when you are once again warmly welcome with your injection moulding requests and projects.
At Weland Plastic, the construction of a new production hall and a new warehouse is underway. Altogether, the new extension will be 4,200 m².
The move to the new warehouse and production hall will take place during the autumn.
Weland Plastic has increased its machinery fleet by adding two more hybrid machines – a 220 tonne and a 500 tonne machine of the make Engel. The two new injection moulding machines are helping to increase the capacity in the production.
With more machines and greater production capacity, Weland Plastic can satisfy its customers' needs even better when it comes to injection moulded articles.
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.
Weland Plastic wishes all of its customers and suppliers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are now taking a well-earned rest while looking forward to an exciting 2018, when you are once again welcome back with your queries and projects regarding injection moulding.
Weland Plastic would like to take the opportunity to wish all of its customers and suppliers a wonderful summer. We will be closed from week 28 to week 31. We at Weland Plastic wish you an amazing summer!
Weland Plastic's largest injection moulding machine ever has arrived to the factory. The machine is of the Engel brand with a clamping force of 700 tonnes.
The injection moulding machine has a clamping force of 700 tons and has a full servo robot. The machine has a seven-meter long Z-axis to handle an advanced packaging cell. The cell is structured in a rational way to produce unmanned for many hours to provide customers with as cost-effective production as possible.
Produces larger articles
"By expanding our machinery with a larger injection moulding machine, we become a more complete supplier to meet our customers' requirements for larger injection moulded articles," says Simon Ottosson, project manager at Weland Plastic.
The wheels are spinning at full speed, and Weland Plastic's production is witnessing a strong increase. It is, above all, components for the new Volvo V90 and S90 that are behind this growth. Weland Plastic currently supplies the majority of the plastic components that are part of Volvo's SPA platform, i.e. the platform for Volvo's new 90 models.
Being a Volvo supplier places enormous demands on quality and security of supply.
At present, we are a proud supplier to several of the major players in the automotive industry such as, for example, Volvo, Scania, Mercedes, etc. We have plenty of experience, genuine know-how, a large production capacity, the best equipment imaginable as well as skilled and committed personnel.
This makes us a stable, reliable and future-proof cooperation partner.
Weland Plastic would like to take the opportunity to wish all of its customers and suppliers a wonderful summer.
We will be closed from week 29 to week 31.
Weland Plastic AB has been appointed as direct supplier of injection-moulded thermoplastic parts to Scania. We are very proud to receive this trust from a world leading company.
We are looking forward to many interesting projects involving injection-moulded thermoplastic parts. Different types of joining and some assembly work will also be part of Weland Plastic's undertaking.
We have been delivering to Scania for several years and we are very positive about the continuing good cooperation with Scania.
We have purchased a Zortrax M200, which now gives us the opportunity to print out prototypes in many different materials easily and flexibly, including ABS, Nylon and PET.
Apart from the opportunity to make prototypes with our 3D printer, we can also offer prototype tools in aluminium and silicone.
In addition, Weland Plastic has invested in 2 new injection moulding machines. One 160 metric tonne made by Engel and one 450 metric tonne made by Zhafir.
Both of the machines are equipped with full-servo robots and, with their very large capacity, they will produce large volumes of parts for Automotive. Both of the machines are in operation and are producing parts for Scania and Volvo Cars, among others.
To increase the capacity in the tool department, we have invested in a new HAAS VF2 milling machine.
The machine will be used to service, repair and adjust tools for our customers. All of this in order to increase the capacity and service level as well as to shorten delivery times.
