  5. Plastics Manufacturing Solutions

Innovations in the plastic packaging industry have enabled significant reductions in food waste over recent years, yet the pressure is still on to improve eco-efficiency and sustainability.

The introduction of engineered (layered) packaging materials and the drive towards lighter weight, often resulting in thinner walls, introduce significant complexity to the manufacturing process. With manufacturing demand increasing, unplanned (and even planned) downtime is more costly than ever.

PHD first recognised the challenges that plastic manufacturing companies were facing with downtime related to OEM component failure more than ten years ago and PSI quickly realised the benefit that we would be able offer the Plastics Industry within the UK.

When combined with the inherent speed and reliability benefits offered by MAC Valves product design, we have a broad suite of industry specific solutions designed to operate within the harsh operating conditions associated with the plastics industry. Enabling reduced unplanned and planned downtime, improving product quality and throughput, many are also direct drop in replacements for the OEM parts and are fully field repairable.
