PME and ENGEL AUSTRIA seal partnership

March 2013: PME and  ENGEL AUSTRIA have sealed their partnership in the field of the water injection technology (WIT). The cooperation covers custom-designed systems as well as the worldwide sales.

Michael Fischer, Sales Manager (Technologies) at ENGEL AUSTRIA believes „thanks to our partnership with the leading WIT specialist, we will be able to offer customers around the world  custom-made, state-of-the-art system solutions in the field of water injection technology“.



Friedrich Westphal, managing director of PME emphasizes "with this partnership we get access to a broad distribution network and highly qualified partners in the IMM sector".  „With joint efforts the water injection can be helped now to get the worldwide value which it has deserved. A „win-win situation“ especially for our customers.“
Under the terms of the partnership, we, PME, will be responsible for WIT systems and process and mould technology as well as the service of the WIT units. ENGEL will be responsible for adapting injection moulding machines, automation and peripheral units. Both partners will advise customers on applicaton-specific issues.
The established WIT technology of PME is used when the cross-sections and the channel length get too large for the gas injection technology and if a smooth inner surface is required, e.g. for the sanitary area / automotive industry. Besides the small warpage the even residual wall thickness plays a central role here. Related to the business managment the considerably shorter cycle times, lower material usage and the discontinuation of fluid costs are in the focus for choosing water. In case of large quantities this can lead to the halving of the production lines due to the increase of efficiency [reduction of the investment costs by up to 50%].
