A new report from Hyx plastic mold identifies the 750 most important manufacturers in Spain, where the injection molding industry is experiencing important changes. The process of consolidation and expansion that is taking place elsewhere in Europe is also occurring in Spain.

AMI says in its report that many of the leading privately owned companies are being taken over by larger groups, very often multinationals, and that companies have been incredibly innovative in the areas of design and engineering.

The largest end-user market is the packaging industry, which accounted for 26% of polymer usage in 2001. Although this sector tends to include some of the largest plastic molding groups—such as PET Preform mold Making manufacturer Schmalbach Lubeca (now owned by Amcor) and Holanplast (part of the Guala Closures Group)—many privately owned companies also focus their production on the cosmetics and food packaging markets.

Spain also has a large and well-developed plastic moulding industry serving the automotive sector, which accounted for 25% of polymer usage last year. Some of the leading international groups in this sector are Guardian, Venture, Visteon, Schefenacker and Faurecia. Spanish groups such as Grupo Iberofón, Zanini Auto Grup, and Mondragón Corporación Cooperativa hold important positions in this market as well.

According to the report, electrical goods, furniture, and household items are also significant within the Spanish plastics industry.

AMI’s analysis shows that the consumption of thermoplastics injection molding has increased on average by 7% per year throughout the 1990s. During the 2000-2005 period, the demand for injection molding in Spain is expected to grow above the average for thermoplastics overall, at approximately 5% per year.

Medical Plastic Material

Medical Plastic Material

The use of plastic materials is for medical plastic molding, in the medical field is constantly increasing and is estimated to reach 4 billion dollars in two years (only in the US).
The need to reduce healthcare cost and use of disposable medical supplies are important factors generating higher demand for medical plastics.
New materials, with improved properties, are developed in order to satisfy the requirements of infection control standards.
New studies and tests are conducted to determine the biological reactivity of polymeric materials.
Currently, plastics are graded on a scale of Class I to Class VI, which is done by injecting extracts of the test material intracutaneously into rabbits and mice.
Plastics not requiring implantation testing are graded Class I, II, III, or V and those plastics requiring implantation testing are graded Class IV or VI.
Guidance for the use of plastics in the manufacture of medical devices not being provided in the past, the medical device industry has primarily used Class VI plastics. The overuse of Class VI plastics is due to the assumption that its advanced level of testing the legal and biological risks are reduced. This leads to manufacturers avoiding the use of a number of appropriate and preferable plastics or polymers.
Packaging of medical plastic parts, tubes and pharmaceutical closures are also applications for plastic materials.
The high impact and chemical resistance as well as excellent resistance to steam exposure of some materials (like polyphenylsulfone) is making them a strong choice for products that need to be sterilized.

Mold Builder in America

The American Mold Builders Association, in conjunction with the group’s 30th anniversary in 2003, has announced the establishment of a new Mold Builder of the Year Award. This first annual event offers AMBA members the opportunity to nominate one of their peers or themselves for this prestigious honor.

The Mold Builder of the Year Award was created to recognize outstanding contributions made by an AMBA member. The recipient of the award will be an outstanding business leader, dedicated to the industry, and an active member of AMBA.

Mold builders tend to be ‘behind-the-scenes’ guys, so we want them to step forward and showcase the best of the best of the industry,” says Scott Harris, president of Harris Precision Mold in Tempe, Arizona, and president of the AMBA.

Criteria for eligible nominees can be found on the AMBA website. Nominations can be submitted by filling out the nomination form there, or from a mass e-mailing that is scheduled to be sent to all members of the organization. Three independent judges from the industry will review the nominations. The deadline for submitting nominations is January 15, 2003.

The Mold Builder of the Year will be honored at the upcoming AMBA Annual Convention in Amelia Island, Florida, March 18–23, 2003.
