WHEN GreenTech Plastics Machinery opened their doors in 2016, they supplied one of their first customers, Diemaster Industries, with an ENGEL injection moulding machine. But this was not Diemaster’s first ENGEL unit.

Diemaster has been a loyal ENGEL customer for 22 years, purchasing their very first machine in 2000. Today, Diemaster operates 12 ENGEL machines at its facility in Kya Sands, Johannesburg.

Diemaster is a leading contract manufacturer of plastic injection moulded parts and products. The company specialises in product design and development, tool and die making, plastic injection moulding and parts finishing.

“We use eleven hydraulic ENGEL machines and one fully electric machine to manufacture technical components for automation, automotive and general consumer products,” said Marco Prieschl MD of Diemaster Industries.

“Our loyalty to GreenTech is based on the excellent performance of the ENGEL machines as well as the outstanding service we receive from the GreenTech team,” Prieschl said.

ENGEL is the only injection moulding machine that uses a patented tie-bar-less design, which allows for more flexibility on mould allocation. For instance, larger moulds can be run on smaller machines as there are no tiebars that get in the way.

In addition, the machines allow for increased flexibility in job and machine allocation. “The fact that we can recall settings allows for a rapid job setup.

Moreover, the moulding parameters are stored and accurately controlled, ensuring product quality. These functionalities enable us to meet and exceed the high standards of our customers and ensure that we deliver on time,” said Prieschl.
