MMI Engineered Solutions invests $2 million in injection molding technology

MMI Engineered Solutions (MMI) announced an investment of $2 million to expand its capabilities and capacity in injection molding technology for their material handling and component applications business segments. MMI is adding molding equipment that includes tonnages of 85, 470, and 2250 to their current fleet in the Saline, MI facility that presently range from 85 to 1500 tons. Each new press will have fully integrated robots to optimize productivity, quality and throughput.
   
The company chose the largest machine, a VH2000-22500 two-platen machine by Negri Bossi, because it offered exactly what MMI was looking for in terms of performance, specification, and availability. Equipped with integrated hot runner controls, SPC and QC software, an eDart interface, and parameter-change tracking, the user has the tools necessary for precise process control and quality monitoring.
   
“The installation of the 2250-ton press helps us meet the many opportunities we have for projects with our heavy truck customers,” said Doug Callahan, president of MMI. “We are growing in two distinct business segments: material handling and component application development. These new equipment purchases will increase our capability and capacity for both market segments, therefore increasing our overall value to our customers.”
   
MMI is ISO9001/14001 and TS 16949 certified. The company specializes in custom injection molding solutions, including material handling products and metal-to-plastic component conversion projects, and operates 15 injection molding presses at its Saline, MI, headquarters facility. MMI also offers complete engineering and analysis services (FEA and Moldflow). Additionally, MMI designs and manufactures aluminum and steel injection molds at its full-service tool shop, specializing in low-volume, high-mix programs, as well as prototype development. The company employs 75 at its Saline facility, and also has a sales office located in Troy, MI.
