New mould engineer at RIS Rubber

Mould engineer Demen Hartman left RIS Rubber at the end of last year, and we are pleased to announce that as of 1 January he was succeeded by Frank van Arnhem.

Highly experienced

Frank has a great deal of experience in mould design, especially in the production of plastic moulded products. His business – Design-Molding – is situated on the same Lelystad industrial park as RIS Rubber. Frank’s expertise and experience are sure to stand RIS Rubber in good stead in enhancing the effectiveness and quality of its moulds. In spite of the differences between rubber and plastic, there are similarities when it comes to moulds: ‘I will be delighted to share the expertise I have acquired in the past with my new colleagues’.

Mould design

When designing a mould, account must be taken of the production method, rubber compound, complexity of the mould structure and product dimensions. Sustainability and cost-effective production are also important factors: ‘Efficient collaboration with the operators on the work floor, technical manager and QESH manager is of paramount importance to achieve optimal designs’.

We are delighted that Frank has joined us, and we look forward to working together on the future of RIS Rubber.
