Ezemova features pinch-welded areas for honeycomb internal configuration
Littlehampton-based Inpress Plastics has succeeded with two projects which make interesting demands on blow moulding expertise.
The company specialises in technical blow moulding, high-volume bottle production and industrial injection moulding. The company designs and manufactures custom-made components requiring technically refined moulding methods.
Plant pot trolley
The twin-skinned Ezemova moulding was designed for longevity, durability and aesthetics. It features pinch-welded areas to give the structure a honeycomb internal effect. Four zinc-coated steel castor studs are rigidly moulded into the finished body, and the special castors are snapped into place by the end user. The Ezemova, which takes plant pots up to 375mm in diameter and 100kg in weight, is guaranteed for three years, and is “almost certainly the strongest trolley made,” says Inpress. The pot sits inside the walls of the saucer configuration. The castors, which are partially hidden from view, are only 3mm from the pot with a view to maximum stability. The Ezemova is available direct from Inpress.

The tank, blow moulded in polypropylene homopolymer, features side flanges flush with the back surface to facilitate wall fixing. The twin outlets enable water to flow to and from the installed water circuitry. The injection moulded neck form is inserted at the blowmoulding station and fuses to the blown vessel to avoid leakage. A detailed neck allows the use of a standard cap with a 62kPa pressure relief valve. The tank was designed by the customer with input from Inpress.
