Engel: Extension in India
Engel Austria, Schwertberg, Austria, is extending its sales base in Mumbai, India, to include a technical centre and a seminar centre. In making the investment, the manufacturer of injection molding machines and automation specialist is addressing the rising demands on plastics processing companies in India.
“The Indian market for injection molding is transforming beyond recognition”, says Jitendra Devlia, Managing Director of Engel Machinery India Pvt. Ltd. “Issues like maximum product quality, long-term reproducibility, proper mold protection and set-up time optimization are becoming ever more important to our clients.” In order to carry on providing full, application-specific advice as well as the best possible service as demands increase, Engel India has taken up residence in new and significantly larger business premises close to Mumbai International Airport in the Andheri East district of the city.
The technical centre will be used for machine demonstrations, customer trials, pre-production and running mold trials. Tie-bar-less victory machines with energy-saving servohydraulic ecodrive, fully electric machines from the e-motion range (for extremely precise, high-speed applications) and viper robots from Engel’s latest linear generation will be used for these purposes.
