On 18 May 2015, Zhafir Plastics Machinery GmbH, Ebermannsdorf, Germany, a subsidiary of the Haitian International Holdings Ltd., opened the first section of its new Chinese plant in Chunxiao, a suburb of Ningbo. The Grand Opening was attended by more than 650 guests from China and overseas.

After a construction period of 15 months, the finished complex offers a production area of around 120,000 m2 . Here, about 400 employees and will in the future manufacture as many as 5,000 Zhafir electrical injection molding machines per year. Mr. Qin Mingbo, Deputy General Manager and in charge of sales at Zhafir Plastics Machinery, comments: ”With this new setup we see a great future for electric machines.” Total area for the plant’s buildings is planned for approx. 300,000 m2 , with a maximum production capacity amounting to 10,000 machines annually.

The plant includes departments for R&D (about 50 engineers), a technology and application center, machine testing, metal processing, and sheet-metal processing, and for a paint shop and machine assembly. Mr. Fu Nanhong, General Manager of Zhafir Plastics Machinery and responsible for the R&D mentioned: ”The production will focus first on the successful Venus Series and the new Zeres Series. Other models will gradually be added to the portfolio.”

With the new Chunxiao plant, the management of Zhafir Plastics Machinery sees the realization of a highly cost-efficient manufacturing concept that makes it possible to reduce production times drastically while continuing to guarantee high-quality production. Thus, for example, a decentralized paint shop is installed upstream of production/final assembly in order to handle castings, sheet-metal parts, and machine beds on demand, i.e. not until they are needed. Several decentralized warehouses located directly adjacent to the individual sub-assembly modules will reduce internal transportation routes and supply times, enabling a more transparent management of inventory.

For the European market, Zhafir machines are assembled and customized in Ebermannsdorf, Germany. Further expansions of capacity in Germany are also planned. Furthermore, Zhafir Plastics Machinery’s German R&D team works on new innovative electrical machine concepts in close cooperation with their colleagues in Chunxiao.
