Efficient turn-key solution for multi-component production
With ACH Solution, ENGEL presents a holistic production solution for high-quality 2C respirators with silicone sealing lip and replaceable filter on two injection moulding machines.
Virtual Masterclass arouses great interest
2 successful online events are behind us, which we were able to hold together with our partners Tebis AG and FOOKE GmbH. The topics ranged from digital twins to the production of a vacuum clamping device made of polyurethane block material. Learn more about the highlights here.
HEXACUT® - End mill
Through close cooperation with end users in the CFRP industry, we were able to develop a new cutter geometry based on the HEXACUT® CFRP cutter geometry. The new DIP®6p diamond coating enables maximum tool life - even with challenging materials.
Machining peek with the HC402
Thread milling in particular is an ideal option for threading of both PEEK holes and bosses. This threading technique can yield better quality threads and higher productivity than its alternatives. But see for yourself in the video!
Preventive maintenance with ENGEL care maintenance packages
Regular maintenance is a prerequisite for permanently smooth operation and safe working conditions in your injection moulding production. With ENGEL care, you benefit from full flexibility and choose from a variety of packages: from a simple inspection to a proactive maintenance plan.
Tiebar-less for more efficiency and safety in the clean room
As universal fasteners, we encounter cable ties in all areas of life – even in medical technology. Samaplast produces similar connecting elements for closing the sternum after open heart surgery on ENGEL's tie-bar-less injection moulding machines in the clean room.
Scratch-resistant kitchen decorations created in one process
A. & J. Stöckli AG produces high-quality injection molded components, among others for household items. To create design panels for an oven, the Swiss company relied entirely on KraussMaffei's system competence to implement IMD (In-Mold Decoration) technology.
Quality assurance with computer tomography
Hamilton Medical AG manufactures ventilation solutions for seriously ill patients. Using computed tomography, the company has been able to analyse and optimise the welding geometries of its flow sensors, resulting in a significant reduction in production waste.
Heating: Energy efficiency with a lifetime warranty
The heating system is a frequent cause of failure of a temperature control unit. We have changed that! With our heating system without direct contact with the heat transfer medium. A system without tank, which requires much less energy and one that will give you a lifetime warranty on top.
Unit calibration ex works
Even highly accurate probes and sensors have their tolerances. For example, up to 6 °C of the process temperature often remain undetected when a temperature control unit is replaced. With our device calibration ex works, we ensure reliable and reproducible temperature control.
How laboratory equipment contributes to climate protection
What would happen if an invention was made which allowed the industry to neutralise its CO2 emissions and thus stop climate change? In the global flight against carbon dioxide, a solution ready for mass production could soon save the planet from a climate shock.
Eco-pump: Process reliable energy savings
With the Eco-pump from HB-Therm you can really save money and are also highly flexible when tempering molds. Eco-pump automatically regulates the speed without endangering the process. The energy savings can be recorded and shown on the display.
Maximum precision for lowest shot weights
For the market launch of its new micro-injection unit for liquid silicone rubber at ENGEL live e-xperience from 13th to 16th October 2020, ENGEL is producing the smallest precision components for the field of ophthalmology with an individual part weight of 0.0013 grams.
Challenges of plastics & single-use legislation
The provisions of the Circular Economy Package on waste and packaging legislation have an immense impact on the packaging sector across the EU and beyond. In her presentation Kristy-Barbara Lange, European Bioplastics, analyses some of the challenges and suggests integrated development pathways.
Communication Pro for automation lines & special machines
The digital, Industry 4.0-compatible ultrasonic generator AGM Pro is designed for installation in automation lines and special machines. When developing the new AGM Pro, we focused particularly on ensuring simple integration and easy operation.
Why Plastic is Important for a Circular Fashion Industry
In his presentation Ben Levy presents the principles of circular economy that are used in Le Lab’s circular manufacturing platform, ITERATIF. Doing so, he explain how the platform links with the plastic supply chain and shares his vision of the role plastic will play in a circular future.
