Around the world, demand for integrated system solutions from a single source is rising. To consolidate its systems business, ENGEL is establishing a decentralised network of mould experts in its sales regions.

The project began with a focus on China. Two mould managers, Davy Kong and Ian Wang, at Engel Machinery Shanghai underwent intensive training at the headquarters in Austria. They now work closely with other mould technology staff in Austria, as well as the business units and application technology departments in Austria and Asia.

In China, they advise ENGEL customers on mould projects while developing mould solutions precisely tailored to products and manufacturing processes in partnership with a mould producing partner.

“Injection mould 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 mould technology expertise close to our clients and have contact persons who speak their language,” said 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, Steger continued.

“If we precisely coordinate all the components in a manufacturing cell from the outset – by which I mean the injection moulding machine, the mould and the automation – the result is higher productivity and component quality as well as more stable processes,” explained Udo Stahlschmidt, who heads the ENGEL mould technology department.

Local mould expertises for Asia and North America

ENGEL will continue to strengthen its mould 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 next year, mould managers will also be deployed to the production plant in York, PA in the USA serving the North American markets.

Developing customised injection moulding solutions presupposes a thorough understanding of available technologies and product specifications as well as sector-specific requirements and regional characteristics.

As production solutions become ever more complex in the face of advancing process integration, for example, these aspects will become all the more important. Over the past four years, ENGEL has been continually expanding a decentralised network of specialist experts in its sales regions in order to keep pace with this trend.

The first step was to establish its own automation centres in America and Asia while introducing a business unit structure. In establishing further teams for mould technology, the company has reorganised another strategically important area on a global scale.
