Custom injection molder Bright Plastics Inc. has added a two-shot injection molding machine at its corporate manufacturing center in Greensboro, N.C. The company invested about $250,000 in the all-electric, 140-ton Nissei NEX press, plus auxiliary equipment, including a Mold-Masters E-Multi injection unit.
