Wittmann Assembles First EcoPower Machine in Hungary
On December 4, an official ceremony was held at Wittmann Robottechnikai in Mosonmagyaróvár, Hungary, to celebrate the handover of an EcoPower 180/130 to Nolato Hungary. This was the first machine from the EcoPower series assembled at the Hungarian facility of the Wittmann group.
Wittmann Hungary has been an important production site of the Wittmann group for robots and temperature controllers since 1997. The plant is also equipped with extensive sheet metal processing facilities and delivers machine frames and control cabinets for the Wittmann Battenfeld machine series. In 2013, the production capacity was extended by adding manufacturing equipment for low-cost series production of injection molding machines. The initial capacity is laid out for an annual production of 200 machines from the servo-electric EcoPower series.
The machine officially handed over to Nolato – a long-standing Wittmann Battenfeld customer – is an EcoPower with 180 tons clamping force and a special automation package. This machine series with clamping forces ranging from 55 to 300 t was successfully launched in September 2009 and has achieved excellent sales figures ever since.
This first machine produced in Hungary is the sixth EcoPower delivered to Nolato in Hungary. With this machine, Nolato is extending its production capacity for medical parts at its plant in Mosonmagyaróvár. In addition, Wittmann Battenfeld is supplying several fully automatic production cells to manufacture parts under cleanroom conditions.
Nolato Hungary Ltd, based in Mosonmagyaróvár, has an ultra-modern production plant equipped with injection molding machines ranging from 25 to 700 tons in clamping force and manufactures primarily high-quality, single- and multi-component plastic products for packaging, medical technology and many other branches of industry.
