ERJ staff report (RPN)
Schwertgerg, Austria – Engel Corp. recently marked the production of its 5,000th injection moulding machine, reported Rubber & Plastics News.
The unit was made by Engel Machinery Korea Ltd.'s plant, one of two Engel production facilities in Asia. It was delivered in late January to the Flextronics facility in Malaysia, where it will be producing technical parts.
Engel said it has delivered nearly 400 injection moulding machines to Flextronics.
The Engel plant in Pyungtaek, Korea manufactures machines in the small and medium clamping force segment, while the plant in Shanghai builds large-scale machines for the Asian market. Engel said the assembly capacity at the two locations has been substantially increased in the past two years.
The milestone was recognised first with the staff in Korea, then at Engel headquarters in Austria.
