STV Machinery and Adept precision collaboration

Adept Precision take refurbished route to lower start-up machinery investment

Installation of a refurbished mix of injection moulding machinery and ancillaries has given Plunkett Associates, which sourced tooling and moulding from the UK and the Far East for many years, a lower initial investment when it needed to shorten lead times on competitively priced development, short run tooling and the capability of making parts in production materials. Unable to find exactly the solution they wanted, they made the decision to expand their already established business.

Finance available for all machinery sold by STV Machinery

STV Machinery have worked with several finance houses in recent years and customers have been successfully able to get finance on both refurbished and new equipment.  Whether it is a refurbished 22T machine or a brand new 2700T Yizumi, it is possible that it could be financed.  We’re by no means experts in finance so we work with several finance companies and brokers to help our customers finance their purchase, just let us know that you’re considering finance.  We’d be happy to recommend a broker with experience in the equipment we sell.

We’re not affiliated with any particular lending house or broker, nor do we receive any commission for arranging a finance deal – we just try to offer some guidance if asked.

Top 5 most wanted machines

STV Machinery have been very successfully refurbishing and selling injection moulding machinery all over the world since 1999.

In that time we have gained valuable insight into the makes and models of injection moulding machines which have the most second hand appeal to processors.

Arburg 25 – 100T with Selogica controller. 

Arburg are of course one of the top machinery manufacturers and their Selogica controller is well known and very popular. These particular machines are compact, reliable and very much in demand.

BOY Injection Moulding Machines with Procan micro-processor controller. 

BOY machines have always sold in high numbers in the UK and are renowned for having class leading footprints. The BOY 22 is one of the smallest footprint machines available for its tonne lock. View available BOY machines

Engel Injection Moulding Machines 25t – 120T.

With their tie-bar-less design, these renowned injection moulding machines are very versatile and can often accommodate jobs that would require larger machines from other manufacturers. View available Engel Machines

Krauss Maffei 100 – 250T.

Very high quality injection moulding machines and not as common on the used market as some other German manufacturers. Machines in this size range are sought after as Krauss typically offers great tie bar spacing and platen areas. The direct lock technology of Krauss Maffei machines means they have a desirable footprint for a larger tonnage machine.

Demag Ergotech Injection Moulding Machines with the NC4 controller.

The NC4 controller is easy to use and rated highly by many customers. Demag offer a very large range of machinery and a lot of customers standardise to have Demag only mould shops.

If you have any of these machines or any other makes or tonnages that no longer meet your production needs and would like to sell them, please contact us to discuss how we can help you.

Alternatively, if you are looking to purchase a refurbished injection moulding machine, no matter the manufacturer or tonnage we can help.

Injection Moulding Machines Don’t Bounce

When one of our clients suffered a most unfortunate roll over during the off-loading of a newly refurbished injection moulding machine at their premises, we were able to save the day.

If you’ve ever had the misfortune to suffer a similar calamity you’ll know that when an injection moulding machine drops it doesn’t bounce.
