Premier Equipment Sales, a manufacturers' representative firm in Perrysburg, Ohio, is installing a 130-ton Engel Victory tie-barless injection press, equipped with an Engel robot.
“We're setting it up in our tech center,” Premier President John Forgash said.
Premier Equipment officials discussed the new press in an interview at the Engel Technology Symposium in York, Pa., in April.
“That'll be used for customer visits, mold demos, training,” Forgash said. “We're still trying to define how far we're going to take that.”
For Engel, Premier Equipment covers Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and western Pennsylvania. Forgash said the Midwest is a strong industrial market. “Automotive's booming. So when automotive's booming, we're good,” he said.
