Leading Healthcare and Cosmetics Products Contract Packer Broadens Activities With the Help of Ridat

Springdew Ltd - the leading contract packer of consumer healthcare, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and toiletries products, located near Swansea, Wales - is to broaden its activities with a £50,000 investment in forming, cutting and stacking machinery manufactured by the Ridat Company, based in Resolven, Neath, South Wales.

"The availability of this fully automated thermoforming machine at a competitive and very affordable price", says Paul Evans, Joint Managing Director of Springdew, "enables us to bring in-house the production of thermoformed trays, lids and clams.

"We are particularly pleased", he comments, "that the Ridat machine includes, as standard, most of the features associated with equipment from much more expensive West European manufacturers. Most importantly, it adds to our customer service by providing us with production flexibility and fast-turnaround, while also making significant savings in cost and inventory."

The Ridat model 2420AFCS-V Form, Cut and Stack machine - which will enable multiple industry approved supplier Springdew to extend its services in the area of thermoformed components for specialist packaging - has a forming area of 600mm x 500mm (24" x 20") with a forming depth of 4" (100mm).

The machine has a two-pitch pre-heat station incorporating moving top and bottom plattens for forming and trimming. Material index is via spiky chain driven by servomotor to ensure indexing accuracy.

Full details of this machine and other thermoforming, blister and skin packaging equipment are available from: Ridat Company, Unit E1 Neath Vale Supplier Park , Resolven, Neath, SA11 4SR. U.K.

The Ridat Company manufactures a comprehensive range of thermoforming machines of high specification and performance, selling at competitive prices.
