As we grew, it became clear that we had to look for a better way to produce our moulds and castings. Not just to meet with the rise in volumes and demand but also, to improve consistency in the final product, reduce the timescale of production and increasing the health and safety environment of our staff.
So, in early 2000, we set to work to design and manufacture our own automated shell moulding machine. At the time, the first machines we manufactured where done so for our own use to manufacture our own moulds. Word quickly grew and we started to supply these machines to companies and foundries around the world. Over the years with changes in technology and our increasing knowledge, we have constantly upgraded these machines, to be able to produce a higher quality product, with improvements on production time, whilst at the same time, reducing the amount of production operatives required.
Today, with a declining number of people within the available workforce, whom have such skills, knowledge and experience of the processes involved, the latest version of our FCSM-A, couldn’t be more relevant.
The FCSM-A injection mould machine, is just one example of the innovation and engineering experience we can offer. We also have experience of working in partnership with various types of industrial machinery manufacturers, to help modify or upgrade their existing machinery, or even to design a completely new variant, perhaps not readily available on the existing market and to meet with the exacting requirements of the customer and process. Be it a CNC, Injection Moulding or a Hydraulic Press, for example, we have proven ourselves time and time again, to be the first choice for many industrial product manufacturers, looking for a tailored, bespoke solution.
Whether the requirement is for hydraulically or pneumatically actuated machinery, be it fully automated or manually controlled, we have experience of working with the customer at all stages, from help with the design, manufacture, test, installation and commissioning, right through to ongoing maintenance and service contracts, to ensure longevity of your valued assets.
Back in the early 1980’s, there wasn’t many foundries within Thailand, that had the capability to produce the complex and complicated shell moulds needed, to manufacture the castings, required, for the pumps we manufacture today. Back then, in order to move forward with our plans for production of Vane pumps and motors, we had no alternative other than to manufacture these shell moulds ourselves, to then send onto to a foundry for the metal pouring and casting. The process involved was extremely labour intensive and inefficient. It required sand being manually poured into the mould and individually heated over a gas burner. This required skilled and experience operators, of which there was an industry shortage. The process was extremely time consuming and proved difficult to ensure the product consistency. It also placed the operator in an unhealthy and sometimes dangerous working environment.
