ENGEL Victory 1050/180
ENGEL Victory 180 40mm flip top closure
Product: 40mm flip-top closure | Machine: victory 1050/180 | Industry: packaging | Technology: IMC (in-mold closing) | Cycle time: 10.9 sec | Cavities: 16 | Material: PP | Mold change: 1.09 sec
One of the five successful business units of ENGEL is the packaging industry. Whether in the beverage, cosmetics, cleaning or food industry: ENGEL offers flexible innovative machine concepts that help you to achieve maximum output of efficiently and cleanly produced standard caps & closures or sophisticated custom solutions.
This application demonstrates the efficient production of flip-top closures. The foundation is a tie-bar-less ENGEL victory 1050/180.
The universal ENGEL victory is your perfect modular system for manufacturing a wide range of technical moldings. With its proven tie-bar-less technology, you can use this relatively small injection molding machine even for large molds. This means that you only invest in the clamping force you actually require. At the end of the video a quick mold change demonstrates the tie-bar-less technology at its best. No tie-bar pulling and no complex assembly work during mold change. Short setup times increase production.
NEOFYTON YOUTUBE CHANEL
Machines and equipment
Energy efficiency is a concept that in our part of the world became important towards the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009, at the outset of the world economic crisis. Most business people had, until then, mostly declaratively considered power consumption as a significant element of the total cost analysis. In these considerations, the impact of energy efficiency on the environment pollution had hardly been tackled at all.
Neofyton was among the first companies in Serbia and the region to start actively demonstrating the importance of energy efficiency, both by cutting production costs and therefore increasing profit rates and building awareness of the resource shortage and broader ecological principles.
Energy savings through the use of Neofyton’s machines
In comparison with our direct competitors in the field of plastics injection machines, and with the utilization of standard hydraulics with integrated so-called “smart” pumps, our machines consume as much as 50% less energy. The use of servo-hydraulics opens up the potential of savings as high as 70%. We have a very precise power consumption measuring device to prove this.
The company Engel was the first plastics injection machine manufacturer back in 2009, which introduced the power consumption page as a standard component of the control assembly – “Ecograph”, where – next to the weight of each product (molded part) in every cycle – total hourly consumption is shown, as well as the specific power consumption per one kilogram of processed plastics (kWh/kg).
The equipment we represent contributes to ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION in several ways. When it comes to ancillary equipment, above all water chillers by our supplier Eurochille, used for temperature control of both hydraulics and machine servo motors and molds (tools) in which finished products are made, the chiller systems we sell facilitate the use of a new cooling system based on the so-called “adiabatic effect”.
In summer, the hydraulics and servo motors of the injection molding machines call for cooling with water at a maximum of 28°C. Using the so-called “free cooling” device with the “adiabatic effect”, cooling of process water is performed without cooling compressors (which use freon as the heat exchanger). Heat exchange, i.e. cooling happens exclusively by the use of ventilators, which translates into six- to eightfold savings compared to traditional chillers that use freon- based compressors.
One of our customers has reduced the required cooling energy by 1.400.000 kWh per year, i.e. by about 70.000 EUR, using the “adiabatic” cooling devices. An additional benefit is the elimination of major pollution risks which might arise from emissions of freon into the atmosphere due to tube puncture or breakage.
A similar calculation can be applied to our Engel injection molding machines, as well as to the Piovan granulate dryers.
