Demag Plastics Group's U.S. operation in Strongsville, Ohio, has formed an applications group to help customers design turnkey systems that include the injection molding press, auxiliary equipment, automation and project management.
The company also is touting its ability to specify press configurations for specific applications, give cycle-time guarantees, do process documentation, give technical sales support and conduct mold trials in Strongsville and three other technical centers.
Heading up the applications group is Bob Lewis, who most recently was southeast regional sales manager.
“Molders are making more and more sophisticated products,” he said. “Because more is expected of them, they are looking for suppliers who offer value-added services. Rather than tie up their own resources to design, coordinate and manage projects, molders are now partnering with suppliers to handle those services.”
