Engel at Plast India 2023

All-electric injection moulding machines combine maximum precision with low energy consumption. At Plast India 2023 from February 1 to 5 in Delhi, India, injection moulding machine manufacturer and system solution provider Engel will be demonstrating how the benefits of all-electric injection moulding machines can be leveraged in a cost-efficient way.

By manufacturing flip-top caps and closures from a 32-cavity mould using an e-mac 1340/280 injection moulding machine, Engel will clearly illustrate the huge potential of all-electric injection moulding machines from its stand at the trade event. Flip-top caps and closures are used for numerous products in the cosmetics and food industries, including shampoo, shower gel, vinegar and ketchup. To ensure bottles and tubes maintain secure closing over long periods of frequent usage, the demands on precision moulding are particularly high in the production of caps and closures. Very precise injection and constant movements of the mould platens during opening and closing are critical. For this reason, all-electric injection moulding machines are often the first choice for this product segment. In the packaging industry especially, cost-effectiveness is all-important.

In the e-mac, Engel offers an all-electric injection moulding machine that combines high power and energy efficiency with an extremely compact machine design for comparatively little capital outlay. The machine is tailored to the needs of the medium performance segment, which features cycle times of more than four seconds.

All-electric e-mac injection moulding machines perform to the max, combining minimal energy consumption with maximum precision and productivity per unit of area.

Maximising overall efficiency

All movements of the Engel e-mac – including the nozzle movement and ejection – are performed by servo-electric drives. This means that the machine achieves very high overall efficiency. If required, a servo-hydraulic unit can be integrated into the machine frame without requiring additional space.

The Engel e-mac injection unit was developed from scratch with a focus on even better dynamics. It is available in three performance classes to ensure the machine can adapt to precise requirements while maximising overall efficiency.

Across the whole series, e-mac machines of the latest generation are some of the most compact in the world in their respective performance segments when compared against other all-electric injection moulding machines on the market. Thanks to optimised toggle lever geometry, the machines are shorter than previous versions - without reducing the opening stroke. This guarantees a high productivity per unit of area – an increasingly important indicator of efficiency for many businesses.
