- About us
Plastic is frequently used for the manufacture of machine parts. If the material is required to be; wear-resistant, chemical-resistant, temperature-resistant, suitable for foodstuffs, impact-resistant, flexible or, for example, lightweight, plastic is in many cases a better alternative and often a more sustainable alternative than traditional materials.
Lakwijk can meet the entire need for plastic products for mechanical engineering. In this way Lakwijk forms intensive collaborations. Parts do not have to be purchased shredded because the entire plastic issue is managed by one specialist. The total package with one reliable partner; technical advice, material selection advice, semi-finished product, wear-resistant moving parts, guides, but also constructions, transparent hoods, windows and, for example, walkways. Unburdening is the motto.
Strict requirements are imposed on parts of machines for the food industry. If materials (can) come into contact with foodstuffs, public health must of course not be endangered in any way. Laws and regulations have recently been changed. Lakwijk follows these developments closely and supplies the correct materials with the official European food approval in accordance with EU regulation 10/2011 .; It concerns the so-called “Foodgrade” materials. The necessary documents (COC and DOC), with which the material can be traced in the entire chain and in which it is stated that the material meets all requirements and that the material has been processed correctly, are included. Lakwijk ensures that the customer uses the correct, suitable and traceable material.
Being able to supply everything in the field of plastic is one thing. Delivering a piece of plastic to size is two. An operation according to drawing is three. Always on time delivery is four. In addition, Lakwijk wants to distinguish itself in the field of technical support. Being involved in the challenges at the beginning of a machine development process often yields a lot. Lakwijk likes to think along and the knowledge of plastics is used as added value. Customers can go to the technical back office with questions and the customer can also count on unsolicited advice. In addition, Lakwijk also has people on the road who can provide the correct technical advice on the spot, for the challenge itself.
