Growing Thai Facility celebrates 20 years of building Xaloy® Screws and Barrels for the Global Plastics Industry

04 Oct 2018

Operation at Chonburi has expanded production capacity and now also supports Nordson's BKG® Brand with Technical Service and a new Pelletizing Lab Line.

Teong HKCHONBURI, THAILAND, October 4, 2018: As it celebrates twenty years of manufacturing Xaloy® products for the world plastics industry, the Nordson Corporation facility at Chonburi continues to add capabilities as it evolves into a center of excellence in support of Nordson’s global brands.

 

Xaloy products for extrusion and injection molding include screws, barrels, and front end components like valves and nozzles. Since acquiring the Xaloy business in 2012, Nordson has invested in advanced systems for manufacturing these products at Chonburi and other Xaloy facilities in the United States and Germany.  The investment at Chonburi has involved replacing older machines with state of art systems, and the result has been a significant expansion of manufacturing capacity and capability

 

“As the Asian hub for our Xaloy business, our Chonburi facility provides rapid response and dedicated technical support for our customers in the region,” said Teong HK, vice president in charge of the Nordson Polymer Processing Systems (PPS) product line in Asia. “In addition, customers that operate globally can obtain screws and barrels for their Asian operations that exhibit the same high level of precision and quality that Nordson offers worldwide.”

 

At the same time, Mr. Teong notes, the Chonburi facility continues to export significant volumes of product to EU countries and is a well-established supplier to Japanese OEMs. “Thailand has free trade agreements with many nations,” he says, “and it is strategically located, with superb logistics for serving international markets.”

 

In addition to expanding Xaloy production, the Chonburi operation has added capabilities for supporting another PPS brand: BKG®. The facility now provides technical service for BKG pelletizers, gear pumps, and screen changers, and recently Nordson has installed at Chonburi a pelletizing laboratory line to demonstrate the use of these products, enable customers to carry out trial runs, and provide customer training.

 

Established in 1998, the Chonburi operation provides engineering, manufacturing, sales, and process laboratory services. The 16,311 sq.m facility includes multiple casting furnaces and boring, honing, and multi-axis machining systems for barrel and screw production.. Sixty percent of the employees at Chonburi have worked there for more than twelve years.

 

The Chonburi facility is ISO-9001-certified. It has been recognized as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) by the European Union.
