Ge-Shen Plastic (M) Sdn Bhd showcased in K-Fair 2022

Ge-Shen Plastic (M) Sdn Bhd was one of the 14 companies that exhibited with MATRADE to showcase our capabilities in precision engineering, injection molding and assembly services.

Also during the Fair, Malaysia showcased its capabilities in recycled ocean-bound plastic products – this was spoken of by our very own Trade Commissioner in Europe – Ms. Zuhaila Sedek.

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 26 (Bernama) — Malaysia is showcasing its strength in supplying recycled ocean-bound plastics at KFair 2022, through its Malaysia Pavilion led by the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE). 

KFair 2022, acknowledged as the world’s leading plastics and rubber trade fair, runs from Oct 19 to Oct 26, 2022 in Dusseldorf, Germany. 

The Malaysia Pavilion comprises 14 participating companies offering recycled ocean-bound plastic products offered by Malaysian companies, including Heng Hiap Industries Sdn Bhd, Respack Sdn Bhd and Poly Edge Sdn Bhd.

MATRADE’s Trade Commissioner based in Frankfurt, Zuhaila Sedek said the Malaysia Pavilion has been gaining strong traction due to the availability of recycled ocean-bound plastic product producers.

“As one of Southeast Asia’s economic powerhouses, Malaysia is a strong proponent of plastic circularity and we continue to encourage our Malaysian companies to venture into the ocean-bound plastics certification programme as there is a growing demand in this segment,” she said in a statement today.

Zuhaila said growing the number of producers of recycled ocean-bound plastic products would also influence positive changes in Malaysia’s industrial ecosystem.

UV Spray Painting

UV coating, UV Spray painting, or ultraviolet coating, is a very glossy, shiny liquid coating applied to a printed paper or plastic surface and cured on a printing press or special machine using ultraviolet light. The coating hardens, or cures when it is exposed to the ultra-violet radiation.

Plastic is used in almost every industry, from aerospace innovation and 3D printing to electronics, medical equipment’s and product packaging. Many applications benefit from the advantages that coatings provide such as wear resistance, insulation, chemical resistance and improved performance – but plastic presents unique challenges such as,

  • Heat Sensitive Plastics
  • Adhesion
  • Low Energy Substrate
  • Sensitivity to Solvents

Advantages of UV Coating for Plastics:

There are several reasons opting for custom UV coating service is the best decision for manufacturing:

  • Scratch Resistance
  • Dependable Chemical resistance
  • Less Curing Time, which eventually results in better production efficiency
  • Versatility in Colour and Finish Options
  • Better Product performance in Harsh Environments
  • Environment Friendly Solution

Electronics manufacturers use UV coatings to ensure durability and functionality of smaller plastic parts, while the automobile industry relies on UV Coatings on plastic components to have ideal appearance, scratch resistance and better functionality over the years.

All these major performance benefits of UV Coating typically also result in lower production costs compared to other coating options, making UV coating for plastic a cost-effective solution. When it comes to packaging, the excellent adhesion to plastics, visibility of product information on thermoplastic bags and other storage containers is vital for tracking purposes, quality assurance and customer satisfaction makes UV coating an ideal solution for it.

In addition to plastic polymers, UV coatings can be done on wooden surfaces and an endless amount of other industrial surfaces as stated below:

  • Paper
  • Glass
  • Fabric
  • Concrete
  • Metal

Plastics are of different types and each have their own unique characteristics and the proposed application plays a huge role in deciding the plastic material and coating requirement for to suit the application.

Turret Punch Press in Sheet Metal Fabrication

In this article we will review another important machine frequently used in sheet metal fabrication, that is the Turret punch. Turret punch (also known as a turret press) is a high-speed press machine equipped with a variety of standard punch tools. These tools cater for a wide range of hole shapes and sizes.  

CNC Turret punch machines are equipped with two turrets and each housing a set of punches and dies. In most machines, each turret is able to hold at least 40 different toolsets.  

The term “turret” refers to the holders which can be precisely programmed to rotate and load the required punch and die. Through its advanced control system, both turrets can be configured to move and rotate in sync to any specific position. 

The turret punch machine simulates the typical blanking or piercing process of a standard press machine for the relatively small and standard shapes. Whereas for much bigger and complex shapes, it is done by incrementally “punching” the shape of the material. In other words, instead of “punching” all the holes and shapes in a single shot, the turret punch machine utilises its advanced control system to precisely fabricate the metal parts in a series of high-speed strokes.  

So why not just stick to conventional press machine? 

As opposed to the standard press machine, turret punch eliminates the need for a high cost investment in product-specific tooling. Capitalising on its wide range of tool shapes and features, turret punch addresses these cost-related constraints that are commonly faced by manufacturers particularly for low-volume products.  

What about laser cut? Isn’t it more flexible than turret? 

When determining the best process for a low-volume product, manufacturers often consider between laser cut and turret punch as each have their own strengths and weaknesses.  

What about laser cut? Isn’t it more flexible than turret? 

When determining the best process for a low-volume product, manufacturers often consider between laser cut and turret punch as each have their own strengths and weaknesses.  

But when it comes to profiles with repeating straight-forward shapes and holes, turret punch is the obvious winner. Without the need to deal with additional costs in laser gases, ventilation and maintenance, turret punch supersedes the laser cut process through its high-speed punching mechanism and low setup cost. Not to mention that turret punch eliminates the risk of thermal distortion in thin material sheet due to laser heat exposure. 

As an experience manufacturer in high-precision sheet metal fabrication, we strive to the deliver the best services and solutions to our customers. Our in-house turret punch is capable of: 

  • Punching capacity: 30 ton 
  • Max sheet size: 1525x3050mm 
  • Max thickness: 6.35mm 
  • Nibbling speed: 600 hits/min 
  • Number of tool stations: 40 
  • Max ram stroke distance: 31mm 
  • Punching accuracy: +/- 0.1mm 

Sourcing Injection Moulding & Metal Fabrication service outside of China

If your company is in need of plastic injection molding or metal fabrication services, it’s hard to avoid the Chinese market. China is currently the largest producer and exporter of injection molds and plastics in the world. With more than 15,000 plastic factories, it accounts for nearly a third of the global plastics production. China also leads the world as a producer of steel and other metals. These resources power it’s massive iron and steel fabrication industries.

But with the US placing hefty tariffs on China’s steel and aluminum, and the growing uncertainty surrounding the on-going trade war between these two economic power-houses, many companies are sourcing their injection molding and metal fabrication services outside of China.

The truth is, while China may dominate the headlines, there are other regions in Asia that companies can turn to for their plastics and metal production. Developing economies such as Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines have been investing heavily in cutting edge technologies and infrastructure to become serious alternatives to China in the world market.

But like China, it’s neither quick nor easy to set up a profitable partnership in these regions. You need to know what to look for in a manufacturer and have a plan in place to take care of issues such as quality control and compliance with local regulations. This added bit of due diligence can make all the difference between successfully developing and manufacturing your plastic or metal products versus wasting countless time, money, and other resources working with the wrong manufacturer.

That said, if you are looking for injection molding and metal fabrication services in Vietnam, Malaysia or other regions in Asia outside of China, then here are several steps you can take to have the best chance of finding the most suitable and reliable companies:

The first step in the sourcing process is to develop a list of manufacturers in the region that could potentially be a good fit for your product. This means you need to be clear about your needs, and answer questions like:

Step 1: Build a List of Manufacturers

• Will you need help with product development?
• How big will your production runs be on average?
• How quick does the turn around time need to be?
• How specialized are the parts or items that need to be produced?
• How important is it that people at the factory know how to speak English?

Once you know what you are looking for you can begin your search. To do this, use trustworthy B2B directories, look through trade catalogs or conduct a search online. You can also tap your network for referrals and attend trade shows.

As an aside, when searching online, pay close attention to the manufacturer’s website. Look at details, such as whether the site is professionally designed and easily to follow, the quality of the English, and finally, what qualifications or references are listed. All of these details can provide important clues about the kind of company you are looking at.

Step 2: Contact the Manufacturers on Your List

In this step, the goal is to narrow down the list of potential manufacturers by reaching out to them and making some basic inquiries. The first thing to note is if the company has English-speaking contacts, such as sales representatives and product managers.

If your company is in need of specialized, non-commodity product, then an initial discussion about product specs and technical needs can reveal whether or not the manufacturer can handle certain specifications and adjustments. You should also ask about their manufacturing process, equipment, and request product samples.

Step 3: Further Investigate Qualified Manufacturers

After narrowing down your list of serious candidates, it is absolutely essential that you take the process a step further. At this stage you will be doing your due diligence by conducting a full background check. This includes gathering and evaluating several critical sources of information such as:

• References from non-Asian clients
• Asking local contacts about the company’s reputation or sending someone to the factory to check out the work conditions and equipment
• Requesting copies of standard industry certifications like ISO or Good Manufacturing Practices

All of this added screening will help to ensure that you are only considering legitimate companies that are in the best position to fulfill your needs.

Step 4: Visit the Factory


At this point, you should have no more than two-to-four qualified and reputable candidates that have demonstrated the ability to produce your product to your specifications at the cost you are looking for. Now it is time for a face-to-face meeting. Treat this part of the process as an opportunity see for yourself the factory’s conditions and potentially begin to develop a business relationship. You should be looking for chemistry between your team and theirs as well as professionalism.

Travel restrictions limiting factory visits? Try asking for a conference call or online audit! You can also engage third party audit companies to perform system audits as well.

After completing the four steps above, you should have all of the information you need to make an informed decision about where to source your plastic injection molding or metal fabrication services. In the end, you may be pleasantly surprised by the options available to you outside of China.
