ZAG Equipment Sales (Gibsonville, N.C.) has entered an agreement with Plasdan Automação e Sistemas (Marinha Grande, Portugal) giving ZAG exclusive sales rights for Plasdan’s multi component injection molding products in the U.S. Plasdan manufactures add-on injection units and fully electric rotary tables, in addition to turnkey in-mold assembly systems that can eliminate press-side automated assembly.

In a release, ZAG President Tim Gould said Plasdan’s multi-material molding technologies can be retrofitted to existing molding machines, as well as be integrated in new cells, partnering with injection molding machinery manufacturers and mold makers.

ZAG currently maintains a Plasdan multicomponent injection molding system at its technology center in Gibsonville for technology demonstrations and application development. ZAG notes that its sales engineering staff is available to advise injection molding companies and brand owners with new ways to implement multi-material molding. All of Plasdan’s products are domestically supported by ZAG’s service technicians, with spare parts also located at the Gibsonville facility.
