As a plastics processor in the technical molding sector, AE Plast Kft. in Hungary needs one thing more than anything else: maximum flexibility. Especially since the applications are very challenging. Multi-component injection molding processes are part of daily business. To combine precision with efficiency here, AE Plast relies on injection molding machines from ENGEL. The victory model range's tie-bar-less clamping units were the deciding factor.
AE Plast in Császártöltés in southern Hungary was founded in 2006 as a joint venture with the aim of supplying customers in the white goods and power tools sectors with parts that comply with strict requirements. Robert Bosch Power Tools is just as much a part of the customer base as Bosch Siemens Household Appliances, and also many automotive suppliers. "We are not the classic contract injection molder, but contribute a huge amount of expertise to customer projects ourselves and also help to develop the injection molds," as Managing Director Thomas Herpertz emphasizes. "We have earned a very good reputation due to this." AE Plast produces for global markets.
For example, the housing components for the multifunctional MM20V rotary tool for cutting, grinding and milling are intended for the US market. AE Plast will deliver 80,000 assemblies to Dremel this year. The assembly consists of a cup housing that holds the rotary head in the finished product, and two half-shells that form the handle and enclose the battery.
