The RGC Group of Companies, the mother company of the industry leader and foam brand Uratex, recently acquired and started operating the first in the country, biggest, most efficient, and top of its class foaming machine from the German company Hennecke GmbhH.
Hennecke GmbhH is known as a global market leader in the field of slabstock machinery and equipment with seven decades of experience in designing and manufacturing polyurethane processing machinery, innovative systems, and improved technology. With their unmatched expertise in the field, the biggest foam manufacturer in the Philippines led by the RGC Group of Companies President and CEO Mrs. Natividad Y. Cheng purchased the Quadrofoamat (QFM) trusting the machine’s optimized technologies with modular design to comply with the customer’s production requirement.
With 50 years of expertise in the industry, the RGC Group of Companies’ Executive Vice President for Furniture and Bedding Mr. William C. Lee said, “It took us 6 months to fully install the whole QFM system and facility. The past year is very challenging to all of us but we are more inspired to complete this facility and begin its operation as we welcome a new year. This is a milestone for the RGC Group of Companies celebrating its 53rd year. This is our achievement, the whole company with the help of our employees, business partners, and customers.”
High industrial output capacity
According to Hennecke, the QFM can continuously operate flawlessly even during change of formulation or adjustment in production by using “hydraulically and pneumatically controlled multifunctional injectors.” Also, this machinery’s strength reduces production downtime showcasing its efficiency and competence.
“With the recent acquisition of the top in the industry machinery QFM, Uratex has now limitless opportunity to innovate and provide the best quality products even in larger quantities,” Lee said.
Lee emphasized, “The QFM can produce approximately 30 long blocks with 60 meter length equivalent to 12, 930 queen sized foam mattresses in 6.5 hours of operation.” This large-scale production is made possible with the QFM’s 2,500 mm width and maximum height to 1,500 mm heavy-duty capacity.
