Wintec’s China-made machinery to be sold in Europe

Wintec, a member of the Austrian machinery maker Engel Group, is expanding sales of its t-win injection moulding machines to Europe. Since 2014, Wintec has operated in Changzhou, China, building injection moulding machines for standard applications. In the six years of its existence, the company adds that it has firmly established first in Asia, later in METAI region (Middle East, Turkey, Africa, India) and, since 2018, on the American markets. By expanding into Europe, the Engel Group adds that it is consistently developing its two-brand strategy.

"We are seeing an increasing demand in Europe for standardised injection moulding machines that are both powerful and quickly available," says Stefan Engleder, CEO of the Engel Group. The drivers of this development are increasing cost pressure on the one hand and changing product trends on the other.

For example, product life cycles are becoming shorter in the domestic appliances sector. Standardised injection moulding machines that are quickly available support a short time-to-market here. Wintec says it delivers custom-fit solutions for these requirements with an attractive price-performance ratio.

"The Engel Group is the only supplier in the world that can offer single-source solutions for the entire spectrum of requirements – from standard single-component injection moulding to technologically sophisticated applications – with reliable products and systems that have been tried and tested over many years," adds Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel.

Wintec’s t-win injection moulding machines are particularly popular for single-component injection moulding that does not require any custom technologies, but places high demands on quality and process consistency, it adds. The target industries include domestic appliances, technical moulding and automotive. The machines are delivered pre-configured, which shortens the time for commissioning.

Wintec machines are developed in Europe and produced in China. The production plant in Changzhou is integrated with the Engel Group's global quality management system. Following expansion of the location, which was completed in the early summer of 2020 and doubled the production floorspace, Wintec says it is well equipped to meet the rising global demand.

The hydraulic dual platen machines from the t-win series are available with clamping forces from 4,500-18,000 kN and feature energy-saving servowin servo-hydraulics as standard. The C3 control unit enables intuitive operator guidance, an ergonomic work approach and flexible integration of robots of a wide range of types and brands, especially the viper linear robot series by Engel.
