Engel to open new technical and seminar center in India

Engel Austria GmbH, a manufacturer of injection molding machines will open a technical center and a seminar center in Mumbai, India, the

company recently said.

“The Indian market for injection molding is transforming beyond recognition,” said Jitendra Devlia, Managing Director of Engel Machinery India Pvt. Ltd. “Issues like maximum product quality, long-term reproducibility, proper mold protection and set-uptime 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 larger business premises close to Mumbai International Airport in the Andheri East district of the city, said the company.

The technical center will be used for machine demonstrations, customer trials, pre-production and running mold trials. Tie-bar-less Engel victory machines with energy saving servo hydraulic Engel ecodrive, fully electric machines from the Engel e-motion range (for precise, high-speed applications) and Engel viper robots from Engel’s latest linear generation will be used for these purposes.

Courses offered at the new training center will lead to qualifications for machine operators and maintenance technicians; the basics of plastics processing will also be taught. Moreover, Engel India plans to invite customers and other interested parties in the plastics processing field to regular technology seminars. The Engel spare parts warehouse is also expanding in the course of the relocation to new premises, the company revealed.

Engel has been active in India for 13 years and growth rates in the country, which is the second most important Asian market for European manufacturers of plastics processing machines after China, are expected to remain high. Expansion is being driven by strong domestic demand in the automotive, packaging, white goods, agricultural and construction sectors.
