Wilvic Plastics in Krugersdorp, South Africa, reports that about 60 percent of its sales are to the United States. The company runs 34 injection presses, most of them from Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH.
The newer machines are from Wittmann Battenfeld's hydraulic HM series, with clamping forces ranging from 110-180 metric tons. Wilvic is considering adding Wittmann Battenfeld's ServoPower presses.
Established in 1993, Wilvic molds products for the mining industry, including customers such as Caterpillar Inc, as well as automotive, security, irrigation and sanitary installation projects.
Many of the products are glass-reinforced composites.
