ENGEL Machinery Korea 5000th Machine Supplied

ENGEL Machinery Korea celebrates delivery of 5000th injection moulding machine Schwertberg/Austria – February 2014EMK_Flextronics__2_V

5000 injection moulding machines have been built by ENGEL AUSTRIA’s production facility in South Korea since being established in 2001. The “milestone” machine – an ENGEL victory with ecodrive – was delivered at the beginning of 2014. Customer proximity reduces delivery times ENGEL pursed a global presence from early on and established its own production plants in regions with strong growth potential. Today, ENGEL is the only European injection moulding machine manufacturer with two production plants in Asia. The plant for injection moulding machines in the small and medium clamping force segment is located in Pyungtaek City (Korea), while ENGEL builds large-scale machines for the Asian markets in Shanghai (China). The assembly capacity at the two locations has been substantially increased in the past two years. Thanks to application-orientated system solutions from a single source, ENGEL has attained a leading position in Asia, too. Local customers benefit from flexible alterations to their machines and system solutions for their specific requirements, as well as from short delivery times….

ENGEL new “ecodrive R” – new retrofit

“ecodrive R” makes older injection moulding machines cost-effective again

Techspan Group reports on ENGELs new Retrofit “ecodrive R” for Energy efficiency – Schwertberg, Austria – January 2014

Rising energy prices and the demand for more sustainability often make manufacturing systems that have been used for many years seem even older. ENGEL’s new retrofit solution ecodriveR is reasonably priced, can be fitted with little hassle and reduces the energy required by existing hydraulic injection moulding machines by up to 50 %, increasing their cost-effectiveness significantly as a result.

ENGEL has been a leading developer of energy-efficient drive concepts for many years now. ENGEL set a new energy efficiency benchmark for all injection moulding machines, including hydraulic models, when it launched its servo-hydraulic system, ecodrive, in 2008. Consisting of a servomotor and a fixed displacement pump, this drive solution saves lost energy among other things. Without an energy saving option, lost energy builds up when a machine is idle and traditionally accounts for a large proportion of its total energy consumption.
