Detectamet, manufacturer and distributor of detectable products, have recently invested in a series of injection moulding machines of various sizes & capacities, with further machines in the pipeline for installation in 2021. Based in Pocklington, East Yorkshire, the injection moulding machines allow Detectamet to manufacture a wide range of products on site, such as their dispensers, detectable scoops and even their detectable pen range.
Sean Smith, CEO of Detectamet is excited by the new investment, saying: “Along with the creation of 9 new jobs to manage & service the new machinery (some of Detectamet’s injection moulding team pictured), the investment is a significant step forward for Detectamet in order to keep more operations in-house, reducing product lead time and enhancing the quality of our products. Detectamet are continuously committed to reducing foreign body contamination risks for our customers, and this is another great step in the right direction. In addition, this investment enhances our ability to manufacture bespoke projects for our global customer base.”
Detectamet’s Injection Moulding Manager Darren Burke, is delighted with the new operation, adding: “The team here have quickly settled in, got to grips with the new machinery, and managed the workload really well. We’re running these machines 24 hours a day Monday to Friday, massively increasing our manufacturing capability for our core products, whilst also developing bespoke products for specific customer requests. We’ve also introduced systems to reuse ‘waste’ material from each injection moulding cycle, in order to keep things as efficient as possible.”
Detectamet manufacture their detectable products in 9 vibrant colours, making colour-coding and traceability more achievable in a busy manufacturing environment. The polymer for their plastic products is food-contact safe, heat-resistant, metal detectable and X-ray visible, making it perfect for use in food manufacturing environments.
Earlier in the year, Detectamet opened their latest branch in Australia, and can now provide 24-hour customer support for their growing global customer base. For more information regarding Detectamet and their detectable product range, please visit: https://metal-detectable-products.com
