A Wisconsin company that has specialized in metal precision turned parts for more than 60 years now has an in-house injection molding unit to complement those metal components.

MicroPrecision Inc. of Delavan, has added three Engel victory spex injection molding machines within a 10,000-square-foot injection molding facility to make fully finished and assembled parts, said York, Pa.-based Engel in a Nov. 26 news release.

The 85-ton, 130-ton and 180-ton presses have a tie-barless design, which allows for more flexibility as MicroPrecision brings more plastics molding on-line, said Ray Schilz, plant manager.

MicroPrecision opened in 1950 and already had a variety of high-end metal operations when it made the decision in 2012 to expand into injection molding.
