Dynamic servo sprue picker
A servo sprue picker ENGEL e-pic B combines linear movements with a swivel arm to totally new cinematics
Based on the proven pick-and-place robot technology, the e-pic Z and the e-pic B combine linear movements with a swivel arm to achieve totally new cinematics. It is above all an economic choice for the fast removal of sprues, compared to a situation where the parts are removed manually or fall out of the machine freely. The compact design gives the user free access to the mold area.
- 100% electric – if electrical pickers option is chosen, no compressed air needed
- flexible, strong jib-arm – rotation on the socket up to 100°
- low maintenance – thanks to no Z-axis
- dynamics and efficiency – lightweight composite construction for high dynamics and efficiency
- no machine adaption required for installation – for most machines up to 220 tons
- user-friendly operation – easy and safe operation due to data synchronization of the RC16 with the IMM (CC300) – no programming skills required
Smart pick and place linear robot
Just plug it in, turn it on and get started: the new ENGEL e-pic Z offers a cost-effective and energy efficient introduction to automation
It facilitates fast, safe and simple manipulation of the parts and, along with short intervention times, a trouble-free production process. An added bonus: thanks to its newly developed kinematics, the e-pic Z is highly compact and can be integrated into the injection molding machine without occupying much space.
- universally applicable – flexible pick and place robot fits in all machines up to 220 tons
- compact design – can be fully integrated into the ENGEL injection molding machine – no need for a control cabinet
- optimum efficiency – economical entry-level model with low acquisition costs and minimum operating costs
- short cycle times – high performance thanks as a result of weight-optimized design and new kinematics
- user-friendly operation – easy and safe operation as a result of data synchronization of the RC16 with the IMM (CC300) – no programming skills required
- full standard equipment package – C-axis, 2 pneumatic lines and 2 lines that can be switched from vacuum to compressed air, 8 additional customizable I/O ports

Take advantage of rich experience: ENGEL has been building powerful linear robots since 1980. The ENGEL viper perfectly fits into your efficient production cell, and its innovative design increases your load-carrying capacity with a low deadweight. Besides, smart software packages ensure perfect harmonization of all the movements.
- optimized efficiency – maximum output with low energy consumption
- more convenient – very safe and easy to use
- low life-cycle costs – robust design and exceptionally low maintenance costs
- flexible use – linear robots, stand-alone or integrated, for ENGEL injection molding machines, or stand-alone for third-party machines
Our proven linear robots with even longer take-off strokes
Robots of the long version achieve longer take-off strokes with identical load bearing capacities and maximum dynamics
X-stroke extension for a compact handling area and lower capital outlay
With the longer take-off strokes, smaller robots can operate on larger machines and cover longer depositing distances.
Smart inject 4.0 features make it possible
These features include iQ vibration control for active vibration compensation and multi dynamic load-dependent speed optimization. Both software solutions are standard features with the viper linear robots.

- flexible production – always adaptable to new tasks
- CE-compliant production facility – in combination with ENGEL machines, the 6-axis robot can be certified to CE standards
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.
