Engel are one of the world’s leading injection moulding machine and automation manufacturers, and are known for the capability to deliver integrated system solutions for bespoke applications.
The Engel brand is synonymous with the unique tie-bar-less clamp system which has been in the market now for more than 30 years with over 70,000 machines in operation. The principle advantage of having no tie-bars is the
ability to fit larger moulds within a given machine size. There are also numerous secondary benefits, such as a complete freedom for automation solutions, faster mould change times, and a lower crane height necessary to load the tool.
Engel also lead the way in terms of large tonnage machines. Available with clamping force up to 5,500 tonnes, the Duo range was introduced in 1992 as the first 2 platen design on the market. Now with the new Hybrid
Ecodrive system, they offer significantly reduced manufacturing cost through minimising energy consumption. Here again, Engel offer technology leadership with comprehensive ranges of fully-electric machines for both standard and high speed applications up to a clamping force of 650 tonnes.
Engel is a company that can be proud of its achievements, and in 2015, Engel UK became the only injection moulding machine supplier in the UK to have a full 7 day customer service operation.
