UK plastic products manufacturer Great Central Plastics has secured and delivered a contract to make feeding spoons for Yoplait’s Petit Filous yogurts.
Based in Northamptonshire, Great Central Plastics said it manufactured the spoons using a two-shot moulding process to create an “eye-catching” white inlay.
In the process, after moulding the initial part, the second shot is injected into the mould unit. The yogurt name is then featured in purple on the white inlay.
Twin-shot moulding manufacturing technique is employed to manufacture complex moulded parts from two different materials in a single machine cycle.
To reach this level of expertise, the company has invested heavily in state-of-the-art CAD and CAM facilities, as well as in its highly skilled workforce, explained Rowan Wilson, Sales Manager at Great Central Plastics.
“Offering tool-making and injection moulding all under one roof really puts Great Central Plastics at the forefront of our industry,” Wilson added.
The company said it developed and delivered the multipart order in less than five weeks.
