DOPAG and ENGEL: 30 years of successful collaboration in Italy
Together with DOPAG the injection moulding machine manufacturer ENGEL shows a live production of silicone products at the Plast 2018 trade fair in Milano, Italy. Visitors can watch the LSR pump silcomix from DOPAG in operation and can get to know its advantages.
ENGEL is one of the world's largest manufacturers of plastic and silicone injection machines with plants in Europe, Asia, USA and has a turnover of over 1.5 billion euros. The collaboration between ENGEL Italia and DOPAG began about 30 years ago. The relationship was intensified when DOPAG Italia opened its branch in Alpignano (TO) in 2004.
It turned out that offering injection moulding machines and LSR dosing systems as one package was much appreciated by customers. More than 60 DOPAG silcomix systems were installed in Italy since then. Customers benefit from the reliable LSR dosing system and the professional DOPAG service.
At the ENGEL booth, a new silcomix PE200 is combined with an ENGEL victory 160 combi injection moulding machine. The system produces a bi-material component for cars in PBT + LSR. “We hope that joining forces at Plast 2018 will further intensify the collaboration between ENGEL and DOPAG”, says Mike Wehmeier, CSO of the HILGER & KERN GROUP.
