Engel expands and modernise its production in Austria

November 05/2012

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Engel, injection moulding machine manufacturer and automation expert, has invested 2.3 m euros in its facility in Dietach, Austria in order to introduce synchronised line assembly and modernise the machine farm in its robot plant, according to plastech. The latest investment in Dietach sees the third Austrian production facility follow suit.

"Thanks to this new structure, we can now achieve short delivery times for the Engel viper linear robot and integrated system solutions, despite full order books", said Dr. Stefan Engleder, Head of Technology and Production at Engel.

One special feature of the line process at Engel is that all work steps occur in sync with the assembly line. Two assembly lines for the Engel viper robots started operations in September. "We can thus cover 90 percent of all orders with line assembly", says Engleder. "And many options are also manufactured in sync."

"Line assembly is Engel"s preferred manufacturing concept", Stefan Engleder emphasises. "We continually question the efficiency of our production, and invest in optimisation driven by market requirements. This has helped us to improve our competitiveness worldwide".

As MRC reported earlier, Engel Austria and Cantoni have recently developed together a new intergrated inject2blow method which combines the injection moulding and blow moulding processes in one mould on one injection moulding machine. By introducing this innovative method, the two companies have set a new standard for process integration.

Engel is, as a single brand, the largest producer of injection moulding machinery worldwide and a leader in the field of injection moulding technology. Engel"s integrated systems solutions include injection moulding machinery, automation, process technology, tool design, training and service. Engel supplies 50% of all large-scale machines and 35% of the small to medium-sized machines with automation included, and the figures are still rising.
