Engel is Expanding its Worldwide Mold Technology

Mold Experts in Sales Regions

At Engel’s headquarters in Austria, an entire department has been involved with injection mold technology for more than a decade. Now, to consolidate its systems business, Engel Austria GmbH, Schwertberg, Austria is establishing a decentralised network of mold experts in its sales regions.

It all starts with China. Davy Kong, head of the new department, and Ian Wang are the mold managers advising Engel customers in China on mold projects while developing mold solutions precisely tailored to products and manufacturing processes in partnership with a mold producing partner. “Injection mold technology calls for a great deal of coordination and close cooperation between ourselves, as the system solutions provider, and the plastics processors. That’s why it is so important to establish mold technology expertise close to our clients and have contact persons who speak their language,” says Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group. “These two factors simplify project management and speed up the start-up of a new manufacturing solution.”

The two mold managers at Engel Machinery Shanghai underwent intensive training at the headquarters in Austria. They now work closely with other mold technology staff in Austria as well as the business units and application technology departments in Austria and Asia. “If we precisely coordinate all the components in a manufacturing cell from the outset – by which I mean the injection molding machine, the mold and the automation – the result is higher productivity and component quality as well as more stable processes,” explains Udo Stahlschmidt, who heads the Engel mold technology department.

Engel will continue to strengthen its mold technology division in Shanghai in order to be able to offer its services from Shanghai to customers in other Asian countries in the future. Within the next year, mold managers will also be deployed to the production plant in York, USA serving the North American markets.
