NINKAPLAST
German processor extends injection moulding for kitchen and bathroom parts / Fewer carbon emissions
Plastics converter Ninkaplast (Bad Salzuflen / Germany; www.ninka.com) purchased four new injection-moulding machines during the course of 2020. The last of these went into operation a few days ago, namely – for the first time in the company’s history – an all-electric model from KraussMaffei (KM, Munich / Germany; www.kraussmaffei.com) with the designation “PX 320-2000” and a clamping force of 3,200 kN. Not least with the aim of reducing CO2 emissions by 44 t/y, it replaces a hydraulic machine with a clamping force of 2,800 kN. Apart from that, this latest model takes on new dimensions, in terms of precision and dynamism.

In addition, two other new hydraulic machines from KraussMaffei, both with a clamping force of 10,000 kN, have each lowered CO2 emissions by nearly 28 t/y. Not long ago, Ninkaplast acquired another hydraulic KM machine with 8,000 kN.

“The investment volume this year for the new injection moulding machines is more than EUR 2m, which supports the sustainability strategy for the company as a whole,” said MD Ralf Priefer. A total of around 40 machines are in operation at Ninkaplast, primarily for the production of moulded parts for kitchen and bathroom furniture industries.
