ENGEL invests €11 million to upgrade and modernize robot production

Source:Adsale Plastics Network 2023-05-31

Capital outlay of some €11 million sees ENGEL strengthen its robot production at the Dietach location in Austria. Production, logistics, the apprentice workshop and the office building will be expanded and modernized in two construction phases. Building work starts in May 2023.


This capital expenditure shows how the company is responding to the growing global demand for robots and integrated system solutions for injection molding production.


"We supply well over half of all injection molding machines produced by ENGEL with integrated automation technology, and the trend is continuing to grow," Dr. Stefan Engleder, CEO of the ENGEL Group, emphasized.


ENGEL robots are manufactured at the location in Dietach, Austria. 

Founded in 1980, the Dietach plant today develops and produces three robot series: the viper linear robot, the e-pic pick-and-place robot and the pic A sprue picker. The building is now being extended towards the west direction on the existing plant location. In total, the extension will offer a usable floor space of more than 3000 m².


The flow assembly line will be modernized in the course of the construction work. “In future, ENGEL will be able to respond in a far more flexible way to customer requests and short-term order changes without prolonging lead times,” stated Engleder.


More space for production, logistics and the apprentice workshop


By spring 2024, the production, logistics and apprentice workshop areas will have been completed and the new photovoltaic system will have been put into operation.


The company focuses on the sustainability of all building work within the Group. With the capital expenditure in Dietach, all three ENGEL production plants in Austria will generate their own green electricity using photovoltaics.


Following the expansion of the production areas, ENGEL in Dietach will modernize and expand the existing office building from the ground up. This will help ENGEL establish the basis for further personnel growth in the future. The Dietach location is already looking for mechatronics engineers, commissioning engineers, software engineers, development engineers, and more.


Jörg Fuhrmann new Vice President ENGEL Automation


ENGEL believes that the high level of automation expertise and its own robot program are a key pillar of its ongoing success. "If we precisely coordinate the injection moulding machine, automation and processing technology, we can leverage the efficiency and quality potential to the maximum," Jörg Fuhrmann, Vice President Automation and Composite Systems, said.


Jörg Fuhrmann becomes Vice President Automation and Composite Systems at ENGEL.

ENGEL customers benefit from an integrated control solution with a shared data platform and standardized operating logic across the entire production cell. "For many customers, the high level of system solutions expertise is an important criterion for choosing ENGEL," Fuhrmann continued.


Jörg Fuhrmann took over as Vice President of the Automation and Composite Systems Division at ENGEL on 1 November 2022. He returned to ENGEL after having already been employed in the Group as Division Manager Automation Technology at ENGEL Austria and Managing Director of ENGEL Automatisierungstechnik Deutschland in Germany from 2007 to 2016.
