Sumitomo Demag’s 80,000th all-electric machine destined for Hungary

Japanese/German machinery maker Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery says it marked an important milestone with the handover of its 80,000th model of its all-electric IntElect machine series to its long-standing customer TE Connectivity based in Schaffhausen (Switzerland). The fast and energy-efficient IntElect 2 S 100/470-110 will be located at the Esztergom production site in Hungary, where it will injection mould technical components destined for the automotive industry, adds SHI.

“Passing over our 80,000th machine to TE Connectivity once again validates from our customers’ perspective the quality of our products and their consequent loyalty," said SHI CEO Gerd Liebig. “As the global market leader in all-electric injection moulding machines, customers value our resource-saving, energy-efficient and fast manufacturing solutions. Additionally, we continue to address their requirements for small footprint integrated production cells."

Since 1986, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has supplied TE Connectivity with more than 500 injection moulding machines during this longstanding cooperation spanning over 35 years. As specialists in connection and sensor products, over half of this machine park installed across a number of the group’s European and international locations by the Japanese-German machinery manufacturer were fully electric.

The milestone machine is being dispatched by the company’s plant in Wiehe, Thuringia. It’s here where Sumitomo (SHI) Demag has exclusively manufactured its all-electric injection moulding machines IntElect series for the past six years following a production changeover. With locations in Germany, Japan and China, the company claims that it is the global market leader in all-electric injection moulding machines. Additionally, more than 90% of its machines and manufactured with the corresponding drive.
