With a new process, ENGEL makes it possible to process plastic waste as flakes in injection moulding directly after grinding. Since pelletising as a separate process step is eliminated, the innovation significantly improves the energy and cost efficiency in plastics recycling. At K2022, ENGEL is presenting the new two-stage process for the first time as a live exhibit at a trade fair. Logistics load carriers with rollers, also known as dolly pallets, are being produced at the ENGEL stand at the Circular Economy Forum in the open air area between halls 11 and 16.
One important parameter for improving productivity and cost efficiency simultaneously is the cycle time. During the K show 2022, large, multiple-use containers with a shot weight of 2000 grams are being produced in HDPE in less than 25 seconds at the ENGEL stand; this is some 30 percent faster than was previously possible. The two companies involved, ENGEL and HAIDLMAIR, have been able to set this new standard thanks to the optimum interplay between the injection molding machine, digitalization, automation and the high-performance mold.
At SIPA’s stand, a system for the production of 20ml PET bottles for alcoholic beverages in one step, starting from granulates through the production of preforms and bottles on one machine, model ECS SP 80, was shown. A rotary blower, model XTRA 14, was shown for the production of 180ml bottles from recycled PET. , with a capacity of 2800 bottles per hour per nest. At the fair, SIPA also promoted a novelty when it comes to PET wine bottles, Sparkle. Visitors could enjoy the complete visual presentation of the stand, which was equipped with high-quality multimedia content.
World’s leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry, Drinktec will be held from 12-16. September this year in Munich, Germany. Over 1200 exhibitors from 70 countries will demonstrate their most innovative technological solutions in the beverage and food industry.
Our partners SIPA, ENGEL and PIOVAN will exhibit at this fair.
The plant footprint and energy consumption are increasingly important key efficiency indicators. ENGEL is establishing new records in both disciplines at K 2022 on a minimal footprint, an all-electric high-performance machine is producing sample vessels for medical diagnostics in two-component injection molding under cleanroom conditions.
The combination of temperature control, intelligent device communication and smart process control leads to maximum efficiency of your system. In this way, the power consumption and CO2 emissions of your injection moulding machine can be reduced by up to 67 %. Depending on the application and machine.
ENGEL is introducing a new member of the iQ product family at K 2022. The new smart assistant for nominal values goes by the name of iQ hold control; it automatically determines the optimum holding pressure time to help process technicians achieve massive time savings.
Efficiency, ethical conduct, social responsibility and the protection of our environment through the use of advanced technologies are embedded in ENGEL values – for generations to come.
The humanitarian tour was organized as part of project classes from the optional subject Health and Sport. This kind of project teaching help students to practice organizational knowledge and skills, as well as to show a responsible relations for health and the environment.
The thin-walled containers are produced directly from rPET in a single step. Up to now it has only been possible to process PET in thick-walled parts such as bottle preforms in injection moulding. The final packaging format was created in a second step of the process – by blow moulding for example.
Through an open dialogue, the employees presented proposals that they believe would have a positive impact on the work atmosphere and increase collegiality as well as job satisfaction.
We are pleased to present our new colleagues: Vanja Branovački – HR specialist, Aleksandar Obradović – Service Coordinator, Marko Špoljar – Service technician for the Croatia market, Marko Vladisavljević – Service technician
