Amherst, N.Y.-based manufacturers representative firm RAM Polymer Systems, is branching out from its main focus on injection molding machines to other areas including extrusion, compounding, granulators, blenders and resin silos — and changing its name.
Plastics industry veteran Todd Banach founded RAM — Robotic Automation Manufacturing Systems — in 2012 to serve processors in the western New York area. Now Banach has rebranded RAM Polymer Systems as RAM Enterprise Systems to reflect the broader focus.
The firm represents auxiliary equipment via partnerships with Wittmann Battenfeld Inc., Dynamic Conveyor Corp. and Process Cooling Systems Inc.
“We can provide the entire material handling system,” Banach said.
Before founding RAM Polymer Systems, Banach had a long history in the plastics industry. He has a master of science degree in industrial technology from the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he focused on automated and computerized applications in manufacturing.
He began his career as a process foreman at Hallmark Plastics in Buffalo in 1980. Other positions included injection molding supervisor at Johnson & Johnson, plastics project/process engineer at Nagle Nunc International, sales engineer at Ultra Tool and Plastics, sales and application engineer at Unique Mold Makers, production scheduler at Delphi Harrison Thermal Automotive, account manager at Pressmasters Inc., president of Polymer Transitions Inc. and application/sales engineer at Empire Precision Plastics.
