Engel secures second place in innovation prize

Engel's new all-electric, tiebar-less injection press, the Engel e-motion 30 TL came in second in the large-scale enterprise category of the prestigious Upper Austrian State Prize for Innovation.

According to Dr. Stefan Engleder, CTO of ENGEL Holding, innovative force is the most important requirement for global success. "Not just for our own business, but also for our locations and the entire region," he said. "This is why we are very excited about this award. Austria has been and always will be the source of our innovations."

Schwertberg in Upper Austria is home to the global Engel Group, and it is also where the company's injection molding machines in the lower to middle clamping force segment are developed and produced.

The prizewinning Engel e-motion 30 TL was just recently launched this autumn. Combining maximum manufacturing precision and productivity with maximum energy efficiency and an extremely compact machine design, the new press is targeting, among others, the global consumer electronics industry, a market which tends to be dominated by Asian-built machines.

The combination of properties by this newest offering from Engel makes it a good choice for the manufacture of, for example, small, electronic precision components and premium optical components. Already, says Engel, a major brand-name customer has selected the new Engel e-motion 30 TL, over the Japanese competition. "All told, we see huge potential in this market sector," Engleder said.

Engleder accepted the award together with Werner Kappelmüller, Head of Mechanical Development for small to medium sized machines at Engel from Upper Austrian State Government Member Dr. Michael Strugl and Günter Rübig, the Chairman of the industrial section of the Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce (WKOÖ).
