INSERPLASA has been dedicated to recycling plastic and manufacturing boxes with this recovered material for more than 30 years. Now, the Sevillian company incorporates a new technology to its plastic injection plant to produce a new highly demanded box mould. It also acquires a new injection machine that will allow it to increase its productive capacity. With this initiative, he hopes to give a faster response to the high demand of the harvest seasons, the main recipients of his product.

For this, the company has invested 741,922 euros in this project. The new Agency for Innovation and Development of Andalusia IDEA, a body attached to the Ministry of Economic Transformation, Industry, Knowledge and Universities, has approved a grant of 185,480.5 euros for this project. It is a subsidy, co-financed with FEDER, framed in the program for Industrial Development, Improvement of Competitiveness, Digital Transformation and Job Creation 2017-2020

Plastic injection consists of injecting a molten polymer into a cold, closed mold, where it solidifies to manufacture different types of parts. The new box model that INSERPLASA is going to manufacture measures 500x300x190mm. To do this, it incorporates a new mold of this size capable of manufacturing 2 units in each injection sequence.

Automatic container recognition

This new technology will also make it possible to recognize the boxes as they fall onto the conveyor belts. In this way, they will be able to give them the appropriate treatment depending on their type and the requirements of each client in terms of the final stacking format.

In addition, they are going to incorporate a new plastic injection machine that will lead to an increase in production of up to 464,000 containers/year.

Industria Sevillana Recycling of Plastics, INSERPLASA, was established in 1986 and is certified as an Urban Waste Manager by ECOEMBES and the Junta de Andalucía. It began with recycling works and in 1997 it incorporated an injection machine to start manufacturing plastic boxes from the recovered waste.
