John Fiocchi, who runs the wholly foreign-owned enterprise (WFOE) Feng Ping Tooling and Plastics (Dong Guan) Mfg. Co. Ltd. along with his brother James, told PlasticsToday that its newest machine, a two-shot 600-ton press, is fully installed and running 24/7. The company is supplying molds and parts to General Motors, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, and Volkswagen, among others, in addition to Tier One supplier ITW. [IMM spent several days with Feng Ping in Feng Gang, generating a three-part series on the company].

When Fiocchi spoke with PlasticsToday, he noted that the company would soon be installing a high-speed robot on the 2-shot press, with preparations also under way to order a second 2-shot injection molding machine.

Fiocchi noted that Feng Ping is currently making three styles of molds for the 2-shot molding process, including rotational, single-mold-base transfer, and dual-mold-base transfer tools. In addition, the company is also building these molds with single and dual hot runner manifold systems for single- and double-gate capabilities, which allows the 2-shot molds to run in standard single-injection-unit molding machines with press-to-press transfer robot capabilities.
