Invested in a new 3K machine

Owi Formteile made of wood and plastic is investing around 800,000 euros in a new production facility. Last Friday, two heavily loaded low loaders, two articulated lorries and a 200 ton crane from a special transport company from Nuremberg arrived at the Lohr plant. On board were the clamping unit, the injection unit and the associated units of a new production system for the manufacture of complex plastic injection molded parts. The machine manufacturer, Ferromatik Milacron, who developed and manufactured the 1,000 ton machine, will finish assembling the system this week. After the company holiday on January 7, 2014, production is to start. "With our first 3K machine, which has been in operation since 2011, we reached our capacity limit faster than expected," explains Bernd Köhler, division manager of the plastics company.

With the new system, it is possible to produce molded parts weighing up to 6.8 kilograms and to inject three different plastics in one operation. Due to the high utilization of the already existing 3K machine, Owi was able to expand its capacities enormously with this investment. “This investment in the future secures our position as a specialist supplier of large-volume molded plastic parts as a supplier to the furniture industry. With this machine, we can respond to the wishes of our national and international customers even more flexibly ”, says Andrea Zschocke, managing partner of Owi. In addition to the two 3K machines, the supplier also has four large-volume 2K machines and eleven other large-volume 1K injection molding machines.
