Compact manufacturing cells, precise processing and intelligent control units: ENGEL AUSTRIA, the injection moulding machine manufacturer and system solution provider, is set to pull out the efficiency stops with a medical application for TaipeiPlas 2018, which takes place in Taipei, Taiwan, from August 15th to 19th 2018.
Integrated manufacturing cells from a single source
“Demand for high-end solutions for LSR processing is rising fast,” says Kurt Hell, Vice Presi-dent of ENGEL’s Medical business unit in Asia. “By adapting production lines to individual products and quantities, we can guarantee our customers high competitiveness. Where the components in a manufacturing cell are all coordinated from the outset, we can maximise both efficiency and quality potential.”
Self-optimising injection moulding machine
Furthermore, Industry 4.0, another trend gaining ground in Asia, will draw visitors to the ENGEL stand at TaipeiPlas.
“Industry 4.0 is a major enabler of greater efficiency and quality,” stresses Kurt Hell. “We are supporting our customers on the road to the smart factory by developing products tailored to their precise needs.”
The modular approach of ENGEL’s in-ject 4.0 program is making it easy for processors to exploit the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0. Even small-scale individual solutions promise considerable benefits. To give one example, ENGEL will be presenting its iQ weight control assistance system in Taipei. During the injection process, the software analyses the pressure profile in real time and compares measured values by means of a reference cycle. For every shot, the injection profile, switchover point and the holding pressure profile are automatically adapted to current conditions and the injected melt volume is kept consistent throughout the production operation. In this way, fluctuations in environmental conditions and in raw materials are automatically recognised and readjusted before even a single reject is produced.
