We help our customers from an early stage in the production process up to the finished product. If you would like to learn more about injection moulded thermoplastic components, you are warmly welcome to meet us in Hall 004, stand E40!
Makeni 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.
Take the opportunity to meet Makeni at Elmia Subcontractor in Jönköping on 14 – 17 November.
You can find us during the entire fair at stand: A06:14. At the stand, you can benefit from our knowledge and experience, gain an insight into the production and experience high/quality, injection/moulded parts.
Makeni has exhibited at Elmia Subcontractor for many years in a row. First and foremost, because the fair is an excellent place for meeting both customers and suppliers. Elmia Subcontractor is Northern Europe's leading trade fair for subcontractors and gathers 1200 exhibitors and up to 15,000 visitors from 30 countries.
Makeni 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 Makeni wish you an amazing summer!
Makeni'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 Makeni.
Makeni has recently won a further nomination enabling plastic parts to be delivered to Scania's new platform. The new project concerns 2K injection moulded parts and has resulted in Makeni investing in a 230 ton 2K injection moulding machine.
In recent years, Makeni has had several projects and nominations regarding Scania. It is almost three years since Makeni initiated its collaboration with Scania and, according to Simon Ottosson, Project Manager at Makeni, the company is looking forward to a further collaboration.
"We are very happy that we have once again been entrusted to deliver injection moulded parts to Scania," Simon Ottosson says.
To manage the production of the double injection moulded parts for Scania, Makeni has invested in a 230 ton 2K injection moulding machine. The machine is fully equipped with a full servo robot of the latest type.
Makeni has invested in two new injection molding machines to increase production capacity. The machines are in the magnitude of 300 to 360 tons and has recently arrived.
According to Simon Ottosson, project manager at Makeni, the two machines complement the company's fleet well as they have previously had a step from 260 to 450 ton.
- With a tighter size range of our machinery, we are increasing our competitiveness and capacity. The machines are of course equipped with full servo robots according to the latest technology for fast and cost-effective production, says Simon Ottosson.
Makeni 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.
Makeni 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 Makeni'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, Makeni 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.
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.
