Wintec emphasizes total cost of ownership of made-in-China machines


Engel affiliate Wintec (booth 12.1F41) started manufacturing twin two-platen machines in Changzhou, China, last year to the same exacting specifications Engel machine users have been accustomed to, albeit with less available options.
