Engel Symposium: Journey to the Future of Injection Molding

2,700 guests from 35 countries visited the Symposium of Engel Austria GmbH, Schwertberg, Austria, on 13 and 14 June 2012. 18 exhibits from the Automotive, Technical Moulding, Teletronics, Packaging and Medical business units were showcased. This was the first time that Eengel demonstrated the Dolphin process for manufacturing premium automobile interior parts with a ’Softtouch’ surface at its large-scale machine factory in St. Valentin; the first series production application had not been launched until autumn last year.

Two machine types celebrated their first airing at the Symposium: the electrified variant of the Engel duo large-scale machine, Engel e-duo, and the new, all-electric Engel e-mac injection molding machine for maximum precision requirements in technical molding. This was topped off by "development live": Engel gave visitors a peek into the future of automotive lightweight construction in the production of inserts for brake pedals using an innovative in-situ polymerisation technology on a prototype machine. Morning keynote presentations at the Symposium, which was held at the Design Center in Linz, focused on improvements to the injection molding process chain. Topics covered during the talks were process improvements in plasticizing, mixing and cooling, new possibilities in process control, energy efficiency of innovative drive concepts as well as lightweight construction technologies.

40 Engel system partners from the fields of raw materials, mold making and temperature control technology, automation, pellet handling, quality assurance and clean room technology backed up the main exhibits with their products and solutions.
