ENGEL introduces new e mac injection moulding machine series

November 08/2012

(plastics infomart) -- ENGEL, the largest producer of injection moulding machinery worldwide and a leader in the field of injection moulding technology, introduced at Fakuma a e mac injection moulding machine series, an all-electric and highly-precise machine that requires very little floor space and is extremely economical despite being fully modular. 

An ENGEL e-mac 50/50 with 50 tonne clamping force produced two-pin PBT plug housings in a 4-cavity mould in the East Foyer. Because the plug contacts are not pressed in until after injection moulding, the dimensional stability of the components is the deciding factor in economic production. The ENGEL e-mac 50/50 was equipped with a size 18 screw.

The shot weight for producing the plugs was a mere 3.6 grammes. ENGEL"s e-mac 310/100 with an integrated ENGEL viper 6 linear robot is aimed to produce polypropylene (PP) and liquid silicone wine bottle stoppers. Thanks to UV vulcanisation, these two materials can now be processed in a single step. In cooperation with mould making partner Elmet, ENGEL"s low-temperature UV vulcanisation process paves the way for new multi-component technology applications.

As MRC reported earlier, Engel Austria and Cantoni have recently developed together a new intergrated inject2blow method which combines the injection moulding and blow moulding processes in one mould on one injection moulding machine. By introducing this innovative method, the two companies have set a new standard for process integration.

Engel is, as a single brand, the largest producer of injection moulding machinery worldwide and a leader in the field of injection moulding technology. Engel"s integrated systems solutions include injection moulding machinery, automation, process technology, tool design, training and service. Engel supplies 50% of all large-scale machines and 35% of the small to medium-sized machines with automation included, and the figures are still rising.
