Engel gasmelt: fully integrated

Engel gasmelt: fully integrated
Working with its system partner Bauer Kompressoren, Engel Austria has produced a new module to simplify the application of gas injection technology. From now on, leakage monitoring is available as standard.

A high level of design flexibility, outstanding component stability and finish quality, low material consumption and short cycle times: gas injection technology (GIT) frequently offers benefits when producing moulded parts with hollow channels by means of injection moulding. With key patent protection rights having recently expired, this procedure is gaining fresh impetus. In partnership with Bauer Kompressoren, Engel is now offering complete turnkey solutions for gas injection technology under the name Engel gasmelt – solutions that will be developed further.

Thanks to a leakage monitoring function that now comes as standard, the injection moulding machine alerts the system operator as soon as predefined limit values are exceeded. The GIT module is fully integrated in the CC 200 control unit of the Engel injection moulding machine, so the operator is able to monitor the entire process (including the gas supply) via the display on the machine control unit.

Based in Munich, Bauer Kompressoren has been an exclusive partner to Engel Austria in the field of gas injection technology for many years. The solutions developed as a result of this partnership guarantee energy efficient operation and maximum availability.
