Plastics industry show a keen interest in new TH Plastics product

TH Plastics has exhibited its new Box Filling Station – designed and built in response to the needs of the plastics industry.

Visitors to PDM in Telford were able to see the new product in action. The Box Filling Station loads boxes into one side where they are filled with a precise number of parts before being moved along the production line. This eradicates the need for manual weighing or manual counting.

The key benefits to the customer include a reduction in labour, reduction in wasted goods, and simple implementation. If any issues arise, such as more boxes being required, an alarm will sound to alert the operator.

Representatives from the Glossop-based ancillary solutions provider welcomed visitors from across the country to their stand, informing them about energy saving products they supply.

The TH Plastics team, the sole UK supplier of Moretto products, also exhibited the Italian manufacturer’s new unique Inline Moisture Meter systems, loss-in-weight GRAMIXO dosing system and the new DPK gravimetric doser.


The DPK is the newcomer of the Moretto’s dosers. It is a compact loss-in-weight additive dosing unit, suitable for intermittent or continuous dosing of small quantities of color or additives into a flow base material. This new dosing unit solves the problem of overdosing with an extremely precise control – achieving dosing accuracy up to 0.3%, allowing processors to avoid unnecessary wastes of expensive additives.

Technical director Dave Middleton, who attended the exhibition on behalf of TH Plastics, said: “The exhibition stand was like a trove of new machinery. We had lots on interest in all the new products and over the coming days and weeks, we will be following up on all of the leads we have received.

“Our team is unlike many of our competitors in that we have an experienced engineering background. It is that knowledge and experience that helps us to solve issues and make further efficiencies rather than just sell machinery. We provide a best-fit solution and make a real difference to our client’s production and bottom line due to our value-added approach.”
