First UK Wintec Snapped Up by Advanced Plastics

Advanced Plastics have added the first Wintec Injection Moulding machine in the UK to their portfolio of ENGEL Group machinery.

Advanced Plastics deliver outstanding levels of value, customer service, technical support, product quality and delivery performance.

Their policy of continuous reinvestment in their manufacturing equipment means that they ensure that they have the latest standards in technology and energy efficiency.

Purchased to primarily assist in the fulfilment of newly acquired automotive business, their most recent acquisition is a Wintec t-win dual platen, injection moulding machine. This also happens to be the first Wintec sold by ENGEL UK in this country.

Speaking of his decision to go for the ENGEL brand of Wintec, Rob Anderson joint managing director says “I visited ENGEL UK to inspect the machine after it arrived in the country and the familiar ENGEL feel about it, coupled with the advantageous pricing and the short lead time, were major factors in my decision to place the order.”

Advanced Plastics already operate ENGEL injection moulding machines and Rob Anderson compares the Wintec favourably with the ENGEL duo machines. He also says that his operators have found it to be very aligned with the machines they used to. The Wintec is providing them with cycle times and energy efficiency equal to the existing ENGEL duo machines.

Advanced Plastics ensure that their injection moulding machines are maintained in optimum condition and ENGEL UK offer a variety of service plans and options to suit all situations.

ENGEL UK managing director Nigel Baker comments “This is the first of a number of Wintec dual platen machines expected in the UK manufacturing sector very shortly. The fact that these machines are designed and engineered in Europe and offer the expertise of ENGEL’s decades of manufacturing, makes them a very attractive option for UK injection moulders. As Rob Anderson has mentioned, the very familiar feel of the control system and the fact that the machines are supported by ENGEL UK will ensure that they are an easy alternative to select.”
