EBOR’s core business and capabilities lie in the consistent production of high-quality technical mouldings to global standards.

Primarily a Tier 1 supplier, EBOR is open to developing partnerships with other Tier 1 suppliers to produce moulded components that other companies may not have the capability or capacity to produce internally.

EBOR operating systems conform to the requirements of the International Organisation for Standardisation – ISO/TS 16949 IATF and ISO 14001/ISO18001.

By investing in premium equipment and a focused, capable team, EBOR continues to deliver the excellent product quality and production reliability that customers have come to expect.

EBOR strives to be competitive as a local industry player, capable of meeting international standards in quality, delivery and pricing.

MOTAN Material Feed Systems

This hardware component is also the first of its kind to be installed on the African continent supporting EBOR’s innovative strategy.

This technology offers the most advanced automated material selection and routing via a mechanical coupled indexing system. The Motan Metrolink therefore serves as an integral component, within the system architecture. This system services the autonomous material needs of all the Injection Moulding Machines, at both plants.

This deepening EBOR’s investment into enabling technical capabilities. EBOR has identified the need to acquire a central material feeding system, which would meet the increasing demands of material distribution of plastic granulate.

EBOR methodically planned the purchase and implementation of this state of the art system, engineered to meet the each plant’s specific needs.

Through the utilization of automated measurement and control, the MOTAN system has contributed vastly towards an increase in operational efficiencies and risk reduction, associated with the broad spectrum of different material types used.

HOT Plate Welding

Specific product and complex product designs have required a robust yet cost effective manufacturing solution, for EBOR’s Gqeberha production facility.

EBOR’s Projects and Technical Team, together with a local machine builder, strategized the product and process development to ensure a successful implemented of Hot Plate Welding Technology.

This incorporating product specific thermal tooling and specific control parameters ensuring a uniform and molecular bond of the product’s upper and lower surfaces, to customer specifications.

2K Moulding

Investment into the above technologies, across both plant’s, has placed EBOR is a well-suited position to affording it’s customers with following various automotive product applications:

  • Air Sealing Interface Systems
  • Water Management Systems
  • Body in White Structural Sealing Systems
  • Acoustic Dampening Systems

TPU / TPE and TPV being the most common material types utilized in these.

Branson M624H Vibration Welders

During quarter 4 of 2018 EBOR identified the need to upgrade the current Branson M622H Vibration Welders, with newer models, in its Gqeberha production facility.

Two of Branson M624H Vibration Welders were purchased at the beginning of Quarter 2 in 2019, out of Minneapolis in the USA.

This where 2004 models sourced out of a US R&D facility with limited in use hours. Both had also undergone complete control system retrofits, to Allen Bradley hardware.

This boosting EBOR’s vibration welding power capability from 22 to 40.2hp. The welders were shipped out of the US and implemented into EBOR’s Machine Hall 1 in April of 2019.

The implementation phase required careful planning and flawless execution, to avoid any disruptions to current production. The commission phase was support by the US system integrator’s software engineer, over a 5 day period.
