Engel Austria and PME fluidtec tie up for water injection technology

Engel Austria and PME fluidtec GmbH have formed a partnership for water injection technology (WIT) that will encompass client-specific system solutions and world-wide sales.

The water injection technology offered by Engel under the Engel watermelt label is used for the efficient and cost-effective production of long media lines and complex hollow parts such as handles, beverage crates and engine components via injection moulding.

The injection of water into a cavity partially filled with plastic melt ensures even wall thickness distribution and smooth internal surfaces, even where part geometries are complex; other advantages include the economical use of raw materials and short cycle times.

“Water injection technology is a small but very interesting niche”, said Michael Fischer, Sales Manager (Technologies) at Engel Austria, adding that the company’s partnership with PMEfluidtec will enable them to offer custom-made, state-of-the-art system solutions in the field of water injection technology to customers worldwide.

A pioneer in WIT, PMEfluidtec has been developing and producing systems for fluid-based injection moulding using internal pressure technology for 12 years now.

Under the terms of the partnership, PMEfluidtec will be responsible for WIT systems and process and mould technology as well as service for WIT units; whilst Engel will be responsible for adapting injection moulding machines, automation and peripheral units.

Both partners will advise customers on application-specific issues.
