KraussMaffei steps up production capacity in Slovakia

Krauss Maffei has recently commissioned the second assembly hall at the Sucany, Slovakia plant, thus, twice increasing its capacity.

According to Jan Siebert, Chairman of the Board of Management of KraussMaffei, the production in the assembly has commenced ahead of schedule, which should have been during the first quarter of 2013.

In line with this, the plant’s production area will also be doubled, from 6,600 sq m to 13,000 sq m, exactly one year after its opening in October 2010. "Doubling of the production capacities is an important move for the KraussMaffei Group so that it can cope even better with the increasing demand for electric injection molding machines and reaction process machinery and systems on our core markets and on growth markets such as Eastern Europe and Asia, " said Siebert.

Many improvements in production processes and quality management have also been made during the expansion. Moreover, competencies were strengthened in the areas of development and design of electric injection moulding machines. Ultimately, the range of services will also be broadened. In the future, the plant will also produce injection moulding machines in the EX series, linear robots, reaction process machines and systems, and component trimming machines.

Currently, KraussMaffei’s injection moulding machines in the AX series, as well as switching cabinets and moulds have been manufactured in the 200-employee Sucany plant.
