ENGEL E-Speed Series Expanded

Sepotember 21 2020

Designed for continuous high performance in the packaging industry, ENGEL e-speed injection molding machines are the most energy efficient and clean hybrid machines in the market. The e-speed 280 now sees ENGEL expand the series into the lower clamping force ranges, with a particular focus on manufacturers of thin-walled containers, buckets and matching lids.

The new e-speed with a clamping force of 2800 kN will produce 1-litre round containers for yoghurt made of polypropylene in thin-wall technology for its market premiere at ENGEL live experience 2020 from October 13th to 16th. To allow this to happen, the e-speed 280/70 is equipped with an interactive IML (in-mold-labelling) solution, which ENGEL is implementing in cooperation with partners Brink (Harskamp, Netherlands) and Verstraete in mold labels (Maldegem, Belgium).

The new size sees ENGEL further optimize its particularly economical hybrid machine, which combines an electric clamping unit with a hydraulic injection unit. From now on, the complete series, covering clamping forces from 2800 to 6500 kN, will be designed with the performance upgrade. The inline injection unit with its electric plasticizing drive, which has been tried and tested over many years, achieves even faster injection performance in the new generation of e-speed machines. It is designed for injection speeds of between 800 and 1200 mm per second. At the same time, the ejector performance has been enhanced. The e speed machines are now equipped with hydraulic ejectors as standard. Electric ejectors are available as an option.
