Goals:

Powerplás, Produção de Plásticos, Lda, is a small company founded in 2005, dedicated to the injection and manufacture of plastic products, acting within the scope of CAE 22292 Manufacture of other plastic articles.

 

With this project, we aim to create a new manufacturing unit in front of the prevention of COVID-19, for the manufacture of visors and goggles, according to the standard 2001/95 / CE.

 

Based on this assumption, the project foresees the acquisition of 4 fully electric and clean injection machines (for the production of sensitive products) and 4 molds, which correspond to the capacity to produce 300 visors / hour and a daily capacity of 7200 visors and the capacity of 400 glasses / hour and daily capacity 9600 goggles.

In parallel, robots will be acquired for injection machines, dehumidifiers for raw materials, gravimetric mixers, refrigerators, dryers, additive dispensers, conveyor belts and retractable packaging machines.

It is also planned to carry out works to adapt the building where the new production lines will be installed, namely replacement of the roof and reconstruction of the concrete floor.

 

The company will produce protective articles in large quantities, which will reduce its cost, making it possible to equip 330,000 people monthly, filling existing needs.

The implementation of the project will thus allow an increase in productivity, in the order of 18%.

 

The project will contribute to the maintenance of 40 jobs, as well as to the creation of new jobs, also contributing to the reduction of the negative impact that this situation has caused to the company.

The present project complements the bet on increasing its skills, namely advanced information systems, with layout improvements, preparing a study to maximize its activity; bet on the creation of laboratory capacities, which allow the creation and development of raw materials for the creation of differentiated products with greater durability, better quality and differentiated colors.

 

This investment will also contribute to the reduction of waste, greater reuse of waste in the production system and a reduction in the extraction of raw materials for the production of polymers.

In terms of logistics, it relies on the intelligent connection of the machines, to the operating systems, in order to obtain total control of the machines from any part of the world, with access to the Internet, as well as to create relevant information for the management of its activity (number of parts produced, material used, hours of operation, temperatures, etc.).

Goals:

POWERPLÁS, Produção de Plásticos, Lda. Was founded in March 2005, and dedicates its activity to the production of plastic products.

Initially, the company did not have its own production, that is, it produced to order with molds from customers. However, this situation created a great dependence on its customers and provided weak negotiating power. For this reason, in 2012, the company acquired its first mold and started autonomous and independent production. The acquisition of its own mold - for the production of a plastic bank, provided the start of its export process to the Spanish market.

Since that date, the company has created a partnership with the client Soler Hispania, SL to introduce new articles, being the company responsible for the total development of the product, from the initial design of the piece to the final and marketable product. In 2013, the company acquired twenty-five more molds for the production of seven new products, which it sells in the domestic and foreign markets.

With this project, POWERPLÁS aims to strengthen its productive capacity and to create new products, processes and technologies, in order to expand its range of products for animal eaters and drinkers; baby utensils, and, for the production of vases in the agricultural sector, a sector in strong growth, and guarantee an effective and efficient response with its customers.
