Engel, PME fluidtec seal partnership

March 07/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Engel Holding GmbH, the Austria-based injection molding machinery manufacturer, has announced a partnership with PME fluidtec GmbH of Germany in the field of water injection technology (WIT), said Plasticsnews.

The companies will work together on client-specific systems and worldwide sales. The technology, which is marketed as "Engel Watermelt," is used for the efficient and cost-effective production of long media lines and complex hollow parts, such as handles, beverage crates and engine components via injection molding. The injection of water into a cavity partially filled with plastic melt ensures even wall thickness distribution and smooth internal surfaces, even where geometries are complex.

Michael Fischer, sales manager for technologies at Engel said: "Water injection technology is a small but very interesting niche. Thanks to our partnership with the leading WIT specialist, we will also be able to offer customers around the world custom-made, state-of-the-art system solutions in the field of water injection technology."

Kappel-Grafenhausen-based PME fluidtec has developed and produced systems for fluid-based injection molding using internal pressure technology for 12 years. Under the terms of the partnership, PME fluidtec will be responsible for WIT systems and process and mold technology as well as service for WIT units. Engel will be responsible for adapting injection molding machines, automation and peripheral units. Both partners will advise customers on application-specific issues.

As MRC wrote earlier, Engel 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.

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.
