Bespoke health & safety features for Strata's workshop
Colchester supplied several machines fitted with bespoke & standard safety features to meet Strata's high level of safety precautions throughout their busy workshop.
Nottingham-based Strata Products Ltd is a leading UK manufacturer of home, office & garden plastic products. Their state-of-the-art factory operates 24/7 with over 35 machines injection moulding, blow moulding or rotationally moulding high quality and innovative products for their global customer base.
With such great demand and stress on their tooling, significant maintenance and machining of spare parts is required to keep it all in "tip-top condition". Colchester Machine Tool Solutions therefore took the opportunity to provide several machines fit to Strata's exact requirements.
Health & safety is paramount throughout Strata's workshop, therefore Colchester provided multiple machines with bespoke safety features, such as additional guarding, emergency stops and a paper filtration system to capture harmful materials. This was done to maintain a high level of safety precautions, as well as keep Strata's workshop running smoothly 24/7.
Ben Hyder, engineering manager at Strata, said Colchester machines are very user friendly and easy to program, as well as being very useful to correct any issues with their tooling.
