ENGEL extends machine portfolio for Packaging


The new duo speed injection moulding machine sees ENGEL combine productivity and efficiency with short cycle times in the high clamping force range. Available with clamping forces from 5,000 to 11,000 kN, the new large-scale machine type is aimed at manufacturers of buckets and storage and transport containers.

The new injection moulding machine is based on the ENGEL duo platform, which has been tried and tested on global markets for more than 25 years, and has been specifically adapted to the requirements of packaging applications on both the clamping and injection unit sides.

“Above all for buckets and logistics products, the duo speed extends the portfolio into the higher clamping force range”, says Christoph Lhota, Vice President of ENGEL’s Packaging business unit. “The development focus was on short cycle times.” With dry cycle times between 2.35 and 3.4 seconds, the duo speed is the fastest dual-platen injection moulding machine on the market.

ENGEL’s compact dual-platen technology further contributes to excellent cost effectiveness. Across all clamping force sizes, the duo speed is shorter than comparable injection moulding machines used in this field of application, which saves expensive shop floor space. In addition, the platen geometry has been optimized for the special requirements of the packaging industry.
