SPM's South African designed and built machinery has become world renowned since 1992 with the SPM 2100 rotary molder being widely regarded as a well-priced, robust and efficient industry workhorse.
Quality & Simplicity
SPM follows a rigid design philosophy which dictates that all equipment is manufactured using only the best materials, is easily serviceable and is capable of being repaired in an average engineering shop using parts which are locally available.
This approach reduces the operator’s dependence on the machinery supplier and allows shorter downtime periods for repairs and maintenance which are undertaken at a much-reduced cost.
All wetted parts are manufactured from 304 stainless steel, while all brand name components are acquired from reputable multi-national suppliers who have adequate representation in the client’s home country.
SPM equipment is sold on a Turnkey basis with each plant individually tailored to the client’s specific circumstances. All equipment is designed and manufactured in Cape Town, South Africa from where it is shipped to the client’s premises for installation and commissioning by SPM's technicians.
A typical installation would take six months from date of order to final commissioning. The entire plant can be installed on a conventional flat 150mm thick 25mpa concrete factory floor and no additional structural provisions are normally required.
Standard machine sizes offer hourly production rates of 2100 to 6000 70 gram egg trays, or the equivalent in other products. Molders can be installed in various combinations with common stock preparation facilities if required.
Product depths of up top 200mm are standard for all molders. All molding lines are P.L.C. controlled and are fully automatic with each function capable of adjustment from a central control panel.
All plant PLC’s are linked via internet to SPM’s computers in Cape Town for on-line trouble-shooting.
In addition to the standard one year warranty against defective workmanship or materials, the company also undertakes to make travel arrangements for a qualified technician within 24 hours of notification of any serious breakdown.
SPM will gladly assist clients on product and mold choice. High-quality tooling for a large variety of product types is available.
Prospective clients are welcome to visit us. Excursions to various pulp molding facilities will be arranged so that visitors may view equipment in operation and gain first-hand impressions of the equipment and hear operator’s opinions of SPM's level of service and its machinery.
