Engel appoints Michael Traxler to head Mould Technology division

June 14/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Following the retirement of Udo Stahlschmidt, Michael Traxler has now been appointed head of ENGELs Mould Technology division, an in-house department at Engels headquarters in Austria that has been involved in the project planning of injection moulds for more than ten years, said Plasticsnewseurope.

The department is also contracted as a consultant, for example, when it comes to particularly demanding new product developments or feasibility studies.

Traxler has more than 30 years of experience in precision tool making and injection moulding. He joined Engel in 2015 and previously headed the Packaging business unit in North America.

Engel is currently working towards a decentralised approach to the development of mould technology know-how.

The project planning of injection moulds requires a great deal of coordination and very close cooperation between us as a system solution provider and the plastics processors. That's why it's so important to be on site and speak the native language of our customers, said Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group.

Engel has established a strong worldwide network of system partners, each of whom is also one of the leading providers in their field. Often commissioned as a general contractor for the complete production cell, including the mould, Engel assumes the overall responsibility, even if other companies are involved in the project, acting as the central point of contact for the customer. This serves in many cases to accelerate the project while offering the customer a greater feeling of security.

As MRC informed earlier, in May 2019, Austria-based injection molding machine maker Engel has opened its second location in Mexico.
