Produce Large Plastic Containers and Logistics Products

Machines and Technologies for High Shot Weights and Recyclate Processing

In logistics, recyclates are often manufactured to large plastic storage containers, pallets or similar products. We offer solutions for the increased use of post-consumer and post-industrial waste. The safe and efficient processing of recycled plastics reduces your costs for material purchases, increases your margins, and protects the environment.

Your Advantages with ENGEL as Partner
Up to 30% shorter cycle times with large ENGEL machines

Many logistics containers are standardized in terms of dimensions, material, and weight. A higher margin can only be achieved by increasing output. Our large duo and duo speed machines are designed for short dry cycle times. This allows you to win critical seconds of cycle time. With our duo speed, for example, you can achieve up to 30% shorter cycle times compared to a conventional dual-platen machine. Without changes to the mold and part.

Small footprint optimizes production floor

With our duo and duo speed dual-platen injection molding machines, you can produce large plastic containers without needing much space. The compact design of the production cell, combined with integrated automation solutions, guarantee a small footprint. You increase productivity per square foot and benefit from a turnkey solution from a single source with CE certification.

High material flow rate and low power consumption

Our duo and duo speed large machines are designed for maximum flow rate with low energy consumption. Servo-hydraulic drives with less oil are standard. We also offer a wide range of electric injection units for the duo series. The dynamic injection unit of our duo speed with hydraulic accumulators works economically thanks to intelligent pump control. Despite being designed to produce thin-walled, large plastic containers.

Reduce your material costs by using recyclates

ENGEL’s portfolio includes different injection molding technologies for processing recyclates. With the skinmelt and co-injection processes, you can produce large plastic storage containers with a recyclate core and a skin made of virgin material. The recycled content is very high. For injection-molded parts with 100% recyclate, we have developed our two-stage process. Thanks to pre-plasticizing and melt filters, you can process flakes directly after grinding.

Fast support thanks to worldwide service network
