The history of plastic is older than many of us imagine. As far back as 1530, German alchemist B. Schobinger succeeded in making a type of plastic from cheese! The first plastic material that could be put to any practical use was made in England in the early 1860s, but it was not until a few years later that American J.W. Hyatt further developed the process with a material he called celluloid. Bakelite saw the light of day in the early 20th century and the plastics industry began to take shape during the 1920s. Plastic was here to stay.
Over the years plastic material has continued to fascinate us people and it never stops being developed. Liljas Plast AB usually say that plastic is a material that never stops making inroads. At time of writing Liljas Plast AB are moving in to a newly built production plant. A plant with twice the amount of production and storage facilities.
Emil Granstrand, sales and project management, Liljas Plast AB:
“For us it felt imperative to create safe production flows with the focus on both work environment and staff. The ceilings are equipped with sound absorbers to dampen the noise from the injection moulding and machinery. We strive to create as pleasant a workplace as possible. For the same reason, the material is sucked up into hoses from the material store and out to the production line. This has greatly reduced the dust levels.
To protect our staff and to comply with the regulations laid down by the Swedish Work Environment Authority, we have naturally also invested in machine guards.”
X-Guard with muscles of plastic
“We’ve used Axelent’s machine guards on several installations previously and we found no reason not to use them this time as well. The quality and delivery reliability are first rate and we chose X-Guard Plastic because it blends in nicely and is easy to work with.”
