Furthermore, the long established ENGEL ecodrive servohydraulic has now become a standard feature of the victory and duo machines.
Producing high-quality surfaces with efficiencyVisitors will also be attracted to the stand by a large video wall on which ENGEL will present new developments in the area of process technologies. One focus will be on technologies capable of producing high-quality surfaces with great efficiency. The clearmelt process, for example, uses in-mould coating to produce ready-to-install trim components with very high-quality yet robust surfaces in a single work step. Polyurethane is used for surface finishing since it allows for fast changes between different colours.
The integrated and fully automated DecoJect process, which combines in-mould graining and injection moulding, also cuts down on work steps. Since colour, structure and haptics are achieved through the foil, DecoJect represents an extremely cost effective way to visually enhance injection moulded parts and harmonise surfaces in vehicle interiors - even in the case of small batch sizes.
The application examples on show will clearly demonstrate how innovative process technologies and integrated system solutions can meet even the most stringent quality demands while keeping unit costs competitive.
