Tex Biosciences goes on developing into still more varied trading and manufacturing fields….

The exciting developing Tex Biosciences – another new IMD online member and a family owned organisation founded a while back by Mr. R.P. Krishnamachari,  – is now engaged in numerous planned company development exercises and is actively seeking new venture opportunities. 

diversifying 

The company began its operations a while ago in just the Leather and Textile markets, but has very recently, impressively grown the business to great effect, extending its activities in Textiles and Leather and also, most significantly diversifying into Animal Feed, Pulp & Paper, Detergents and Waste Water Treatment.

water for re-use

It was in 2018, that Tex Biosciences further entered into  Waste Water Treatment  operations indigenously developing Biotech products that biologically treats both Industrial and Domestic Waste Water making the water fit for re-use. The Tex Biosciences Waste Water Treatment Business has grown rapidly with an ever-increasing list of satisfied and repeat customers.

speciality chemicals 

A year later in 2019,  Tex Biosciences then acquired Rajam Chemicals, which was a Proprietary concern manufacturing and marketing Speciality chemicals and Auxiliaries.

This further valuable acquisition has allowed Tex Biosciences to further enhance its comprehensive range of products to both the Leather and Textile Industry. It has also resulted in the company accessing vital land resource of some 7 acres for future business expansion.

contract manufacturing 

Another highly effective aspect of the business is its Contract Manufacturing activities for many European and North American clients.

The business uses either the Clients’ Patented Strain/Technology or uses Tex Biosciences’ proprietary strains and manufactures to the specifications required by the customer. 

client trust 

The Company has established valued knowledge and experience in Intellectual Property Protection issues. It’s highly organised business expansion activities has earned key trust from its clients in all sectors,  which is in turn encouraging the business to further progress growth into new ventures and technologies in varied manufacturing and commercialisation environments.

Keeping the ‘balls in the air’ for a ‘steel’ and ‘plastic’ world-wide trading bonanza!

The Shaoxing Shangyu Peijie Import Export Co Ltd, as it is today, certainly – and indeed literally-  has a lot of ‘balls in the air’ when it comes to business expansion, development and flourishing world wide manufacturing success.

two factories 

This thriving Chinese business is only one of three such companies in the world! It is a recent member of IMD online. It operates two busy factories, producing both plastic and stainless steel ‘ball’ products, and, as if all that were not enough, it also runs  a thriving, professional, foreign trading company, carrying out domestic and foreign trade activities, including joint ventures, co-operative production liaisons, re-export trade opportunities.. and more.

ball’ works 

The Shaoxing City Shangyu Aoke ball factory handles the highly expert, professional production of various kinds of quality intricately developed ‘ ball’ products made of plastic.

This business was first established in 1998. The highly successful ball works ‘a la stainless steel’, also run by the company, is derived from two previous locations, Shangyu Sanlian, set up in 2000, and Shangyu Keke, founded in 2004. The company’s steel ball products are now successfully and widely used in the likes of cosmetics packaging, in operating bearings, industrial equipment, rolling and medical equipment and other major fields.

sphere production 

The business as a whole has an impressive, fast growing, 20 years of history and a wealth of experienced accuracy in ‘sphere’ production, both in stainless steel and plastic. Both the current steel and plastic ‘ball’ works are led by a quality, scientifically-aware, management team, who have together led the development and expansion over the years, of an expert casting manufacturing process, delivering products of exceptional excellence and quality.  Here below the Company experts review in more detail the manufacturing process of the  highly successful polypropylene (PP) plastic ball products and also the moulds, which, of course are at the heart of the ball product manufacturing success story.

protection and safety 

The PP plastic material used for the Peijie ‘ball’ product is light weight, environmentally safe, and low priced. These plastic ‘balls’ can float and are widely used in food and pharmaceutical machinery, mainly for environmental protection and safety.

The plastic spheres also have a use in some water supply pipeline valves, and certain additional machinery.

moulds 

The actual production of  the plastic PP balls initially requires, of course, the production of PP plastic ball moulds. The size of the PP plastic ball-mould depends on the  precise required specifications of the plastic PP ball, itself,  in terms of  its diameter size. This sizing is reached by taking account of the actual shrinkage of the plastic ball as will occur during the production process.

injection moulding 

Generally, the size of the ‘rough ball’  produced by injection moulding, is at least 0.20mm larger than the diameter of the finished plastic PP ball product. The processed PP plastic balls are carefully selected as to quality and accuracy. Any defective products suffering shrinkage or mottling are ‘found’ using air lines, and then discarded. 

grinding 

After this, the many crafted ‘sphere’ products then go through to the next process – grinding. The machine used for grinding is a special plastic ball ‘mill’. A ‘rough mill’ is used first to grind the product and then a special plastic ball ‘refiner’ is used to grind the product still further. The sized precision of the plastic ball can be achieved to a tolerance of plus or minus 0.01mm. Then it’s on the polishing.. and once polished, the plastic ball ‘sphere’ becomes the highly efficient, correctly finished plastic PP ball product as specified and required.

‘Taking the temperature’ of the Huaxi Mould Company’s fast developing success story…..

The Taizhou Huaxi Mould Co Ltd,  located in the Huangyan District of Taizhou City –  and  a recent new member of IMD online – has been established for more than 10 years, mainly in the production of daily-use plastic moulds.  The business is based on sound considered technology and exceptional production development skills. The company has invested in quality advanced equipment, which allows Huaxi Mould to always deliver to its customers high quality mould products every time. 

exports

Every year Huaxi produces around 200-300 mould sets, mainly  chairs, tables, stools,  storage crates, dustbins,  baskets, flowerpots and more.

Huaxi moulds are mainly exported to Europe, North America, The Middle East, Asia and Africa. Here the company experts review a key aspect of the effective mould product process … the effect,control and management of mould temperature…. 

melt-flow

Appropriate mould temperature can ensure the melt flow and cool the product. Mould temperature represents the temperature of the mould cavity, not the temperature indicated on the mold temperature machine. Generally, the cavity temperature reaches a stable dynamic equilibrium during stable production and is higher than the indicated temperature of about 100 degrees C. For large plastic moulds , the mould must be fully heated (especially thin-walled and long-flow) before injection. Product moulds should be more similar.

cooling rate 

Mould temperature affects fluidity, which affects melt fluidity and cooling rate. It affects the flow rate, thus the cooling rate, and thus the appearance (surface quality, burrs) and injection pressure of the product, which in turn affects the crystallinity of the product. Product shrinkage and mechanical strength characteristics.

crystallinity

Due to the high mould temperature, good melt fluidity, high crystallinity of the plastic, large shrinkage of the product, small size, easy deformation of the product, long cooling time, low mould fluidity, poor melt fluidity, leading to assembly lines. Due to trace amounts, low crystallinity, and small shrinkage, their sizes increase.

properties 

For plastic injection moulding, the mould temperature depends on the physical and chemical properties of the plastic, the fluidity and surface quality of the product. Generally, the mould temperature is set as high as possible to reduce the flow resistance of the melt and quickly fill the mold. The melt is cooled and solidified at a uniform rate. 

higher

However, the higher the mould temperature, the smoother the surface, the more pronounced the depressions, and the longer the moulding cycle. Therefore, the moulding cycle and product pre-requisites must be fully considered to determine the temperature.

‘Concrete’ reasons why a Zhejiang Chuangmei motor get thing’s effectively done…

Zhejiang Chuangmei Electromechanical Co Ltd is located in Wenling City on the central coast of Zhejiang in China. The company is a provincial, high-tech enterprise, producing various types of permanent magnet synchronous motors and has joined IMD online recently. 

product ‘spec’ The business has a strong R&D team that can, as needed, develop and specify products based on specific drawings or samples provided by customers.  Zhejiang Chuangmei Electromechanical operates its own testing laboratory fitted with the most advanced testing equipment in the industry.  This enables an impressive, constant product range and quality and ensures that all its pump motor products achieve maximum efficiency completely in step with industry standards.

key products  The Zhejiang Chuangmei business’ key products are two types of variable frequency drive permanent magnet synchronous motor which have been awarded the Chinese energy-saving product certification and also the 2014 International pump and valve industry technology innovation Rongge Industrial Media prize. Also, the Company has obtained 13 utility model patents in the application of permanent magnet synchronous motors and are now very much a significant leading player in the pump manufacturing industry.

High-Frequency One of the company’s impressive products in its extensive range is a High-Frequency vibrator motor.

Among original uses for these vibratory motors are as a ‘concrete vibrator’ to achieve best compaction of that material when used in key construction scenarios. Members of the Zhejiang Chuangmei Electromechanical team point out that there are hand compaction techniques of concrete available, but they are comparatively less effective and are really only suitable for more unimportant works. 

workability  For hand compaction, slightly more water usually has to be added. As a result of adding more water, the strength of the concrete decreases. But compaction by vibration, means a concrete of sufficient workability and low water cement ratio can be achieved – a concrete that remains both more manageable and stronger and most effective, however stiff ‘the mix’ may be.

good compaction Using a vibration motor allows good concrete compaction all the time, even using the stiffest concrete mix. If a concrete vibrator is used properly, this will help consolidate the material by reducing the amount of air pockets inside the concrete mass. Either internal vibrators or external vibrations can be used depending on the application and where the concrete is being placed. In the civil engineering field, use of a quality effective concrete vibrator will avoid any build up of any damaging air voids in the concrete, which helps ensure the vital final quality and strength of the concrete in use.

The core of Baodi culture is total customer satisfaction and it is continuing to develop and innovate in order to maintain its position as one of the top plastic valve and pipe manufacturing service suppliers worldwide. Below the Baodi experts discuss in summary the rudiments of their key PVC pipe and diaphragm products:-

cost effective  PVC pipe products are now the go-to choice for various requirements such as plumbing, sewage, and agriculture. Unlike conventional pipes, PVC pipes cost low and last for a longer period of time. In other words, PVC pipes are a cost-effective alternative to conventional pipes. Getting your hands on the right types of PVC pipes that perfectly suit your requirements is now easy as there are several PVC pipes companies that manufacture as well as supply high-quality PVC pipes.

significantly popular  PVC pipes are now one of the go-to material choice for different types of projects such as sewage, agricultural watering systems, and plumbing. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes have become significantly popular over the years. So much so, they have now become ubiquitous. PVC pipes are undoubtedly a better alternative to conventional metal pipes as they outrival the latter in a number of areas, including service life, durability, and maintenance. PVC pipes are an cost-friendly alternative to conventional metal pipes as they have a cheap rate and superior durability and longevity.

shut off service  Diaphragm valves are used for throttling service and shut-off service for liquids, vacuum/gas, and slurries. These valves are available in a wide variety of solid plastics, metals, rubber, plastic, and glass linings; they are suitable for the handling of multiple chemical processing applications both slurries as well as clear fluids. The diaphragm valves have an extended utilisation for applications at a low pressure and slurry fluid where most of the other valves become obstructed or corrode. Initially, the diaphragm valves were developed for industrial applications and pipe-organs. 

compliant materials  Gradually the design was adapted in the bio-pharmaceutical industry for sterilising and sanitising methods by using compliant materials and now it is being used in almost every industry for safe production and adequate infrastructure, such as power generation, food & beverage, semiconductors, pulp & paper, chemical processing, and water/ wastewater treatment among other verticals.

Key requirements to look out for when purchasing plastic mould products ….

Taizhou Booling Mould Co. Ltd. is a Chinese manufacturing company that produces and markets varied injection moulds, blow moulds and plastic machinery. It has done so for more than 20 years. It is a recent new signed up member of IMD online.

energetic The Booling Mould business has a thriving long-term co-operative relationship with numerous leading manufacturing companies in China and now also operates an energetic International,  price-competitive, export operation to market its products to East Europe, Middle Asia, South America, The Middle East and Africa.

price comparison Taizhou Booling offers all customers an attentive after sales service on all products, which includes free price comparison, 24-hour email response and lifelong free product repair for moulds with any technical production ‘performance’ flaws. Scheduled online at and also presented here below, is some excellent valuable guidance and advice on the key requirements to look out for when purchasing Taizhou Booling plastic moulds.

Consideration 1 – High corrosion resistance Many resins and additives have a corrosive effect on the cavity surface. This corrosion causes the metal on the cavity surface to dissolve and fall off, the surface condition is deteriorated, and the quality of the plastic parts is deteriorated. Therefore, it is best to use corrosion-resistant steel or chrome-plated and samarium-nickel treatment on the cavity surface.

Consideration 2 – Good abrasion resistance The gloss and accuracy of the surface of plastic and plastic parts are directly related to the abrasion resistance of the surface of the cavity of the plastic mold, especially when some plastics are added with glass fiber, inorganic fillers and certain pigments. It moves rapidly in the flow channel and mold cavity together with the plastic melt, and the friction on the surface of the cavity is very large. If the material is not abrasion-resistant, it will wear quickly, which will endanger the quality of the plastic part.

Consideration 3 – Excellent dimensional stability During plastic molding, the temperature of the cavity of the plastic mold must reach above 300 ° C. For this reason, it is best to use a tool steel (heat-treated steel) that has been appropriately tempered. Otherwise, the microstructure of the material will be changed, which will cause changes in the dimensions of the plastic mould.

Consideration 4 – Easy to process mould parts are mostly made of metal materials, and some structural shapes are still very complicated. In order to shorten the production cycle and improve power, mold materials are required to be easily processed into the shape and accuracy required by drawings.

Consideration 5 – Good polishing performance Plastic and plastic parts generally require excellent gloss and surface conditions, so the roughness of the cavity surface is very small. In this way, it is necessary to perform surface processing on the cavity surface, such as polishing and grinding. Therefore, the selected steel should not contain rough impurities and pores.

Consideration 6 – Little influence by heat treatment In order to improve the hardness and wear resistance, plastic molds are generally heat treated, but this treatment should make the size change small. Therefore, it is best to use pre-hardened steel that can be machined.

innovation There are many types of pneumatic quick connector products, and each is widely used in many industries. Today, with the continuous innovation of science and technology, how does the manufacturer of pneumatic quick connector select the various type of products? Nowadays, with the continuous innovation of science and technology, the updated products are constantly improving and more and more satisfying for people’s needs. The following is an introduction to product related knowledge.

Open close type at both ends: When not connected – when the ferrule of the parent body moves to the other end, the stainless steel bead automatically rolls outward, the sub body is disconnected due to the operation of the valve spring force of the parent body and the sub body, and the valves of the sub body and the parent body are closed respectively, blocking the flow of fluid instantly.

When connecting – when the sub body is inserted into the parent body, the ferrule returns to the original position under the action of the spring, the steel ball rolling locks the sub body tightly, at the same time, the valves of the parent body and the sub body push each other to open, the fluid flows, and the O-ring can completely block the fluid leakage.

Open end No connection – when the ferrule of the parent is pushed to the other end, the ball automatically rolls outward, so the daughter is moved out; because there is no valve between the daughter and the parent, the fluid flows out. Link – when the sub body is inserted into the parent body, the ferrule is pushed to the previous position by the force of its spring, which causes the ball to lock, and the fluid flows. The O-ring in the ferrule prevents fluid leakage

Single way open close type When not connected – when the ferrule of the parent body moves to the other end, the stainless steel bead automatically rolls outward, the sub body is opened by the reaction force of the valve spring, and the valve can automatically close to block the flow of fluid. When connecting – when the sub body is inserted into the side of the parent body with a ferrule, the valve is opened to cause fluid flow, the gasket is pushed back to its original position by the force of the spring, and the stainless steel bead is locked to ensure the sub / parent connection, and the gasket inside can completely block fluid leakage.

Calling all feed machinery manufacturers

February 16, 2020: A soaring world population and growing demand for animal-derived food has spurred an enormous development in feed machinery manufacturing worldwide. But with policies and technologies differing widely across countries, there is a substantial imbalance in the field. To help harmonise market practices, a new ISO technical committee (ISO/TC 293) has been created to supply the industry with standards for feed machinery used to produce formulated feed in feedmills. The feed industry is working with ISO Technical Committee to develop a standard for feed machinery. There are two components to ISO/TC 293 comprising one standard for ‘terminology’ and one for ‘safety’.

A standard for single feed machine, processing systems and complete production lines will cover safety, hygienic requirements, environmental protection and a number of specific technical requirements of feed machinery used in feedmills (but excludes non-commercial, domestically-used, agricultural machinery).


The ISO 293 standard will contribute to six of the United Nation’s ‘Sustainability Development Goals’ including: No Poverty (1); Zero Hunger (2); Decent Work and Economic Growth (8); Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (9); Responsible Consumption and Production (12) and Life on Land (15). The next meeting of the working group is April 20-22, 2020 in Winterthur, Switzerland.
