The first 30 years

The first 30 years

WITTMANN your partner in the plastics industry!
Beginning with Water Flow Regulators
and Temperature Controller 19761982

Entering the Robot-Technology 1983

DRYMAX D60 Entering into the

drying market 1998

ML-33 Entering into the granulators

market 2000

In 1976 Dr. Werner Wittmann started the company with the manufacture and sale of the
first WITTMANN water flow regulator. Only two years later the first WITTMANN
temperature controllers with integrated water flow regulators for direct mounting on the
molding machines went in production.

In 1983 WITTMANN entered the robot market and in 1987 introduced the first
removable teach pendant to the plastics industry.

From 1989 to 1992 WITTMANN further proved themselves with the introduction of the
patented vertical telescopic axis, the high-speed servo robot and the development of a
Real-Time CAN-Bus for the realization of decentralized controls.

In 1998 they entered into the drying market for plastic resin. In the same year
WITTMANN makes use of carbon fiber for the light weight construction of robots.

Further expansion of the product offering occurred with the entrance into the material
handling market in 1999. In the same year the SmartFlow valve was developed to allow
the intelligent distribution of dry air for drying systems.

In 2000 they enter the market for granulators, further providing WITTMANN with a wide
range of products to offer the plastics industry.

In 2001 a graphical editor for robot sequences, as well as, FLOWCON microprocessor
based water flow regulators are introduced to the market.

In 2002 WITTMANN begins the creation and programming of the M7 control, an

advanced decentralized network control system for central material handling.

From 2003 to 2006 WITTMANN develops the energy saving and highly efficient
molecular sieve regeneration in short called SmartReg. WITTMANN introduces
screenless granulators with reversible combs and counter-combs. Further development
also occurs with the M7.2 a more advanced version of the material handling control
system which supports the integration of central drying systems and the use of RFID for
the contactless recognition of end-of-arm tools and connections on coupling stations.

In 2006 IML mold production starts and the introduction of the W7XH, a robot with
SCARA kinematics for the fastest possible horizontal removal.

From 2007 WITTMANN has been very busy with further development of another branch
of the peripheral equipment market that of gravimetric blending.

In 2008 WITTMANN purchased the injection molding machine manufacturer

BATTENFELD located in Kottingbrunn, Austria to become the worlds first and only
supplier of complete solutions to the plastics industry.

The relentless drive for innovation by the WITTMANN development team has helped mark the history of the company.
The slogan Progress through Innovation represents the inventive spirit, which has and continues to lead to numerous
industry firsts and patents in the field of peripheral equipment.

The first generation of WITTMANN water flow

regulators defined the world standard in mold cooling
and remains valid today. The second generation
of water flow regulators in 1992 provided further
simplification of the cleaning process.

In 2000 SmartFlow was introduced for the intelligent

distribution of air in central drying systems to ensure
the optimum amount of dry air volume is independently
provided to each drying hopper. Optimum drying
results with the lowest energy consumption

Segmented wheel dryer

A further innovation in 2007 was the worlds first
segmented wheel dryer, combining the advantages
of twin desiccant bed type dryers and wheel dryers.
This completely new compact dryer design offers
constant dew point and energy saving operation
combined with the simplest maintenance.

Gravimetric Blending
In 2007 the GRAVIMAX series blenders with Real Time
Live Scale (RTLS) measurement were introduced.
The RTLS technology provides free flow, coarse and fine
pulsing for the highest blending precision every
single batch.


Screenless granulators
In 2003 a completely revamped generation of low
speed screenless granulators with reversible combs and
counter-combs was offered to the market. This resulted
in extended maintenance intervals and the highest
quality regrind possible.

Carbon-Fiber Technology
The consistent pursuit of lightweight robot construction
and reduction of moveable masses brings ever shorter
part removal times. In 1998 the first use of carbon
fiber materials on the vertical axis allowed speed
profiles that up until then were unheard of.

At the K 1992 show WITTMANN was the first robot
manufacturer in the plastics industry to introduce
decentralized control logic with real time data
exchange. The significant reduction in the number of
cables and at the same time secure data transmission
set a new standard in the industry.

Water Flow Regulators

In 2008 WITTMANN introduced the first temperature
controller offering both direct and indirect cooling.
DUO-cooling offers on one hand the highest cooling
capacity and on the other hand, the most precise
cooling through an integrated cooling coil.

Progress through Innovation

Cutting Edge Production Methods

Seven manufacturing facilities in Austria (2), Hungary, France, USA, Canada and
China guarantee the best utilization of local resources and know-how.
The machining and assembly of the various products is performed in series production to achieve economies of scale for the lowest prices and highest quality.
The product range includes robots and automation systems as well as products
for automated material supply and drying, the recycling of plastic parts and mold
heating and cooling. With this all encompassing peripheral equipment product
range WITTMANN offers plastic processors complete solutions for virtually any
The worldwide efforts in product development and the necessary financial investment have lead to numerous patents and purchase recommendations based on
independent reviews that have made WITTMANN what it is today the market
leader in the peripheral equipment field!

Construction of the first Injection
Molding Machine

Battenfeld a pioneer in plastics technology

The roots of this enterprise go back to the year 1876, when Werner Battenfelds

grandfather founds a forge and metalworking shop.

In 1948, Werner Battenfeld becomes the sole owner of the family business and

establishes Battenfeld Injection Molding.

In 1954, a new production facility is opened in Scherl, Meinerzhagen.
In 1962, with the acquisition of the HMW facility in Kottingbrunn, Austria,

Werner Battenfeld starts a second production company to manufacture

injection molding machines.
In 1983, Battenfeld shifts its product portfolio towards more compact machines


in all clamping force sizes, adding modular automation equipment. In 1991,

the worlds largest injection molding machine with 8000 tons of clamping force,
developed and manufactured by Battenfeld, goes into operation.

In 1983, the development of the

entire CD series is completed.
