Europe’s largest high frequency welding machine to be showcased at MEDICA



Specialist high frequency welding company Speed Plastics will be at MEDICA 2023 to showcase its range of engineering and OEM services offered to healthcare companies, including its recent investment in Europe’s largest high frequency welding machine.

Over the last year, the company has invested nearly £1m in state-of-the-art machinery, including a bespoke 100 kilowatt Zemat Mega Welding Machine.

As well as manufacturing its own range of pioneering products, Speed Plastics also offer customers bespoke engineering solutions.

The company provide a complete design and development service from concept idea through to the finished commercial product.

The company is experienced in a wide range of manufacturing techniques. including ultrasonic welding, CNC machine cutting, tool making, sewing, silk-screen printers and a roller press to deliver a wide range of services to their customers.

Operations Director, Jane Collyer, said: “We have made huge investments over the last year to stay at the forefront of technology and are delighted to house Europe’s largest high frequency welding machine.

“We believe anyone can make a product, but what sets us aside from our competitors is that we truly understand our customers’ needs.

“Within the healthcare arena, many of our pioneering products have made a significant contribution to the quality of life for patients.

“We are very excited to be back at MEDICA to showcase our services and speak to existing and potential customers.”
