The cell is structured in a rational way to produce unmanned for many hours to provide customers with as cost-effective production as possible.

  • The Wheels Are Spinning at Full Speed

    2016-09-01

    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 has invested in a vibration welding machine from Green & Co

    2015-01-22

    The M-624 Hi model is a powerful machine that can weld an area up to 450 cm² and it has the most up-to-date control system including data management and Teleservice.

    Vibration welding is a bonding technology where the parts are vibrated to create friction between them. Roughly, in the same way as when you rub your hands after being out getting ready for Christmas on a wonderful December day. The vibrations are produced by pulling a spring from its zero position with the help of magnets. The advantage with welding is that there is no need for adhesives and screws.

    Moreover, the technique is clean, fast, energy efficient and it is characterised by high productivity with lower costs than alternative methods. Examples of components include different types of tanks and covers that have to be bonded, e.g. fuel tanks.

    Branson was founded in 1946, the same year as Green & Co. However, the vibration welding technology is hardly 30-years-old and Branson is the pioneer in the field.
