Denso becomes a Moretto fan
Excellent performance with reduced consumptionNews24.03.2015
Automotive components manufacturer Denso, which is part of the Japanese Denso Corporation, purchased two new Moretto dryers at the end of last year and another two scheduled for delivery in the next couple of months.
Steve Crowther, Denso UK’s technical engineering manager, stated that the Moretto brand was chosen as “it offered 35-40% energy savings compared to a normal dryer”. Denso, which was set up eight years ago, started out with 9 injection moulding machines and now boasts 55 units, 34 of which bought in the past 14-16 months.
The two models of dryers supplied to Denso to date are the XD26A dryer with 1,200 litre OTX drying hopper and XD27A dryer with 1,800 litre OTX drying hopper. Both were supplied with access platforms and central loading system that can convey fiberglass filled polymers from 200 metres away.
Lee Thomas, managing director of TH Plastics, believes Denso selected the Moretto dryers with drying hoppers because they dry polymer quicker than competitive models. “This means customers need only a small dryer, which offers customers significant energy savings. The other plus point is that since these machines are much more compact, they were ideal for Denso, which had floorspace already densely populated with machinery.”
Earlier this year Denso Corporation announced its global financial results for the first quarter ending June 30, 2014. “Due to the increase in production volume and the cost reduction effort, the operating income totalled $39.3 million, a 130.5% increase from the previous year”.
