Extension of the production plant in China going to plan
(Munich, July 31, 2012) The extension of the production plant of the KraussMaffei Group in Slovakia is proceeding faster than planned. Production in the second assembly hall can therefore start at the end of 2012. The extension of the production plant in China is going according to plan. The KraussMaffei Group is doubling its production capacities at both plants.
Substantial increase in the range of products at the Slovakian plant
The extension of the production plant of the KraussMaffei Group in Sucany (Slovakia) is progressing very well. "Production in the second assembly hall can probably start at the end of 2012 instead of originally planned in the first quarter of 2013", said Vladimir Boda, Plant Manager. The production plant in Sucany, which only came on stream in fall 2010, will also manufacture in future robots, injection molding machines in the EX series, reaction processing and part trimming machines and systems under the KraussMaffei brand and switching cabinets for injection molding machines under the Netstal brand on a production area of around 13,000 m2 (currently: 6,600 m2). At present, KraussMaffei injection molding machines in the AX series, as well as switching cabinets and molds are manufactured at this location. "By extending our production capacities, we want to cater even more in future for the increasing demand for KraussMaffei electric machines“, said Dr. Hans Ulrich Golz, President of the Injection Molding Machinery Segment.
Start-up of production of injection molding machines in China
The extension of the production capacities at the production plant of the KraussMaffei Group in Haiyan (China) is going according to plan. The existing production area of 12,000 m2 will be increased to around 22,000 m2 by spring 2013. In addition to extending the existing production capacities for reaction process and extrusion machines and systems, the plant in Haiyan will also manufacture injection molding machines for PET applications under the Netstal and KraussMaffei brands. KraussMaffei had already shown a machine, i.e. the MX 850-6100, from the successful large machine series produced in China during its Open House in April 2012. In future, machines in the clamping force range from 8500 to 40000 kN will also be produced at the plant in Haiyan for the Chinese and Asian market.
