Wittmann expects a plus sign in 2021 due to order backlog

Austria-headquartered Wittmann Group, which encompasses injection moulding machine maker Wittman Battenfeld and Wittmann (auxiliary equipment), saw its turnover drop by 17% to EUR310 million, compared to the previous year. Nevertheless, the company has seen increased activity in the last few weeks. Managing Director Michael Wittmann said, “Our order income for 2020 has seen strong recovery in the second quarter with an incredible pick-up in business.”

He also expects a plus for turnover in 2021, due to “good order backlog” but adds that there is “uncertainty behind any forecast because of the health situation”.

One of the innovations it introduced is the Ingrinder, which is an energy-efficient injection moulding system for recycling plastic waste. It consists of a sprue picker, granulator and vacuum conveyor and has been developed for the 110-tonne EcoPower machine and the 90-tonne SmartPower series. These machines run with cold-runner technology moulds, which produce sprues that can be recycled.
