At Fakuma 2021, ENGEL demonstrated what the “circular economy” in the plastics industry can look like – By processing label offcuts from the in-mould labelling process. This is turned into a form of regranulate. An ENGEL victory 460/80 injection moulding machine was used to produce tapered closures in an 8-cavity mould.
Schwertberg, Austria – September 2021 The state of Upper Austria has recognised ENGEL AUSTRIA’s commitment to building up a circular economy for plastics with the Upper Austrian Environmental Award 2021. Awards were given for a total of five sustainable climate ideas, including the skinmelt technology developed by ENGEL for processing recycled plastic waste.
FAST AND COMPACT WITH HIGH CLAMPING FORCES
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.
Since their invention, the properties of plastics have made them a go-to choice for manufacturers: lightweight, durable and easy to colour and mould, a whole technology has built up around developing new types of plastic with different properties suitable to different uses. From food packaging to healthcare or automotive, plastics have made our lives cleaner, safer and more convenient.

ENGEL HL Award
The ENGEL tie-bar-less technology opens up possibilities for more economical efficiency, flexibility and completely new process concepts – for more than 30 years.
Circular Economy Green is more than the colour of an ENGEL injection moulding machine. The Circular Economy = Sustainability for tangible forward-looking solutions:
