KraussMaffei Anniversary Machine for Wirthwein

November 26 2018

To celebrate 180 years of KraussMaffei and the 180th injection molding machine for Wirthwein, the two companies took this opportunity to give the anniversary machine a one-of-a-kind look. Street artist Ralf Spitzer, well-known throughout Europe by his alias Shamey ABC, lent a street art flair to the GX 900-4300 BluePower with his special airbrush technique. Illustrations on the machine include the faces of company founders Georg von Krauss and Joseph Anton von Maffei as well as Walter Wirthwein.

KraussMaffei delivered its first injection molding machine to Wirthwein back in 1967. "It was a model from injection molding machine manufacturer Eckert & Ziegler, which was adopted by KraussMaffei in 1964," says Udo Wirthwein, current Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
