Colorplas International, headquartered in Rochdale, UK, has invested in two ColorPoint IP colorant dispensing units from Rexson Systems, a member of Inkmaker Group, to increase its production speed.
Colorplas is one of the leading independent British manufacturing family businesses supplying a wide range of polyester gel coats and color dispersions to a broadening marketplace.
The units, purchased to automate and streamline Colorplas’ production, are designed to shorten lead-time demands by supplying products on a just-in-time basis. Using industry 4.0 technology, the ColorPoint IPs dispenses a shared range of 23 colorant and additive components to manufacture colored gel coats. One dispensing station is dedicated solely to small 10L-20L batches, while the other is focused on the production of intermediate to large-sized batches.
‘The formula dosing accuracy combined with production speed and the traceability of the orders of the new ColorPoint IP dispensers has given us the edge we were after. We have been working with Rexson Systems for a while now and have always been impressed with their quality and service,’ explained Nick Parkinson, owner of Colorplas. ‘The Inkmaker Group has an accomplished pool of expertise, and we are looking forward to working with them on the next project.’
‘The teamwork of shared knowledge and planning with our colleagues at Inkmaker in Italy ensured that, regardless of the challenges of constant lockdowns, we were able to fulfill the installation ahead of schedule,’ commented Martin Black, area sales manager for Rexson Systems.
