Engel is giving a kick-start to its new macPACK machine series of machines by featuring a 330/125 (1250 kN of clamping force) macPACK machine molding a serving cup from polypropylene with a cycle time of 2.9 sec. Walter Jungwirth, president of Engel North America, acknowledges stiff competition for the ‘yoghurt cup’ market, but believes Engel can compete effectively in the industry.
“First, we feel we offer a better price/performance ratio than other machines,” said Jungwirth. “We are bringing new meaning to this area.”
Jungwirth also said Engel will be competitive in helping customers design and integrate complete production cells, a trend in the packaging industry. He singled out the high-speed machine series as one of the products likely to have an impact in the Canadian market.
