Manufacturing

Chess can manufacture plastic components for a wide range of industries using our 18 large moulding machines which range in size from 400 tonne up to 1300 tonne lock. Large injection moulding products can be manufactured using cost effective production methods making components from 300 mm square  up to 1400 mm square.

Chess have an extensive knowledge of  a wide variety of thermoplastic materials, prime or recycled, filled with glass, talc, or unfilled.  Using our gravimetric dosers we can also add additives such as flame retardants, anti-microbial and special colours.

Whilst we are predominantly injection moulders we do additional  services such as printing,  welding , plating , assembly and packaged to form complete units ready to despatch to the 'High Street' distributors.

Production planning and control are effectively achieved by use of our 'Mattec' Real Time Monitoring system which integrates with our plastic manufacturing software.

Below is a listing of our machines all of which use modern technology to ensure precise quality standards are met combined with 6 axis robots.
