Engel Reorganizes Plasticizing Systems Division

Engel Austria, Schwertberg, Austria, has reorganized its Plasticizing Systems division and is investing EUR 17 million in expanding capacities and introducing new technologies. Demands on plasticizing units are rising: innovative additives and higher filler content, economising on weight and material, tighter dimensional tolerances and increasing requirements for higher surface quality. All these factors are constantly driving development. “The challenge for us is to ensure that even new materials can be processed faster and to a higher quality standard despite the increasing stresses on mechanical components,” says Günther Klammer, head of the Plasticizing Systems division. He and his team are responsible for the development and production of Engel plasticizing units as well as consulting customers on process technology.

The recently established process of Concurrent Development ensures that the experience and ideas of users are applied to the development of new products, and that ENGEL can continuously improve its production concepts. “Our aim is to increase the benefit to the customer,” says Klammer. “Therefore, we work closely with our colleagues in the application technology and service divisions, and even consult with customers at their production facilities. This is how we can offer ideal solutions to highly individual requirements across many different sectors.”

At present, Engel produces some 6000 screws and barrels with diameters from 15 to 170 mm annually – a figure set to double by 2020. With this in mind, the company is investing EUR 17 million in new machine tools, heat treatment equipment, material flows and new technologies. A fully integrated CAx process chain will raise productivity even further.
