Short delivery times and easy operability

"The new PX Agile is perfectly tailored to the needs of our customers in China. Both up-and-coming small and medium-size companies and established large companies increasingly request short response and delivery times in order to adapt to the rapidly changing conditions of the market. Furthermore, low investment costs and easy operability of the machines are in demand," explains Dr. Hans Ulrich Golz, President of the Injection Molding Machinery segment of KraussMaffei Group.

The new PX Agile is produced at the KraussMaffei plant in Sanming, in Fujian province in the south-east of China. A special stock machine program makes the delivery of standard machines ex works possible. Machines with additionally ordered options will be available for delivery within four to six weeks. Due to the local production of the PX Agile, the service response times will be very short.

"The new PX Agile offers precisely the advantages that dynamic companies in China request: large platens and high performance, which permit varied, flexible application of the machines in production," says Dr. Golz. Furthermore, options for retrofits or upgrades are available for the PX Agile, allowing for a quick and flexible response to changing market conditions.

Flexible sales programs and German DNA

Customers in China additionally benefit from a user-friendly human-machine interface specially tailored to the requirements of Chinese markets. Easy operation and intuitive programming ensure that the machines are accepted quickly. The flexible sales options are also particularly attractive. They include a free trial phase and short-term and long-term leasing plans with flexible payment plans.

The new PX Agile features a German DNA that meets the highest quality standards and is based on decades of experience gathered at KraussMaffei's Munich headquarters. For example, this includes the expertise in the design of the plasticizing unit, which corresponds to the established PX series from Germany. In addition, production of the PX Agile in China observes the global quality standards of KraussMaffei, supported by cutting-edge programs in control and validation systems.
