Engel/PME tie-up for WIT

Austrian machine maker Engel and PME fluidtec have formed a partnership for water injection technology (WIT) that will encompass clientspecific system solutions and worldwide sales.

Engel’s Watermelt WIT is used for the 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.

A pioneer in WIT, PME fluidtec 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, PME fluidtec 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.
