Negri Bossi Looks to Asia

September 22/2009
September, 22 ( -- The Italian injection molding machine manufacturer has invested EUR 2 million to update its plant in Cologno, Italy, awaiting market recovery. In the mean time, production has begun in India at one of the group plants.

The renovate plant was presented to its customers last week in packed open-house. The works performed involved the whole flooring, the implementation of seven automatic stores for small parts, a new parts stores, overhead cranes, paint booth, and equipment for internal handling.

Among the key points of the plan for recovery is greater attention to foreign markets. Thus, at the end of the summer, Negri Bossi has begun assembling machines in India, at the Sacmi plant in Ahmedabad. "This involves a series of hydraulic presses with clamping force from 550 to 1000 tons, developed for the local market with technology taken in part from Negri Bossi, and in part from BM Biraghi," explains Mr. Tavecchia. "Injection molding machines without any frills to reduce the costs, but with European technology and parts to guarantee performance and reliability. Our objective is not to compete on price with the local or Chinese manufactures, rather to take a share of the medium-high market segment.

In the meantime, Negri Bossi has closed a few major supplies abroad, starting with a BiPower press with 7000 ton clamping force, recently delivered to Japan. It was the largest machine every built by Negri Bossi and, perhaps, the largest single-frame machine ever built. With a two storey-clamping unit, it has two side-by-side injection units, Euromap 125.000, to guarantee filling of the die while limiting the dimensions, a solution already used in other 6000 ton BiPower lines. This gigantic injection-molding machine was built in the Sacmi plant in Imola, where the large Negri Bossi plants have been assembled for some time.
