Sytrama Plans U.S. Robot Assembly At New Michigan Plant

Sytrama moves closer to automotive customers and plans U.S. robot assembly.

At last month’s Plast 2018 show in Milan, Italy, representatives of Sytrama told Plastics Technology that the maker of injection molding robots would move its U.S. headquarters from New Castle, Del. (sharing space with sister company Negri Bossi), to Canton, Mich., largely to be closer to automotive customers. What’s more, Sytrama plans to begin U.S. assembly of robots at the new 32,300-ft2 facility, which it plans to occupy by the end of this year or early in 2019.

    Demand for more robust plastics is creating new opportunities for radiation-crosslinked nylons, including nylon 6 and 66, which can serve as cost-effective alternatives to higher-cost, high-heat thermoplastics. Crosslinked nylons have higher heat resistance than their standard counterparts, along with better physical properties and abrasion resistance. Adapted from a paper presented at SPE ANTEC 2012.
