Our application engineering team will work with you to determine the optimum plastic injection moulding process for your products. With the right technology, you shorten the cycle time, save energy and protect your machine. Whether multi-component or foam injection moulding, surface technology or injection-compression moulding. We will find the most efficient option for your products in over 20 proven technologies. Application engineering supports you in the responsible use of plastics. For a sustainable circular economy.

Better component quality thanks to practical tests in the Technology Centre
Picture shows injection moulding test in the Technology Centre at ENGEL

In our nine technology centres worldwide, you have the opportunity to test and optimise your processes with injection moulding machines, technology cells, additional equipment and moulds. Fine details in the injection moulding process often determine whether the product meets the requirements or not. Our experienced injection moulding application engineers take the time to find out these subtleties for you.

Do You Want to Produce New Components and Find the Best Settings for the Injection Moulding Process?

Our application engineering team supports you in optimising your plastics production. Everything is possible, from a short exchange of experience to an extensive development project!

How Big Is the ENGEL Application Engineering Team?

Our application engineering team consists of more than 70 experts in plastic injection moulding technology. In Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Benelux, Korea, China and the USA, our team is there for you. Or directly at your site if you prefer. The technicians and engineers bring extensive expertise from the fields of plastics technology and toolmaking. They offer you support with control issues, process automation and digital solutions.

The Application Engineering Process

An Overview of Our User Support in the Field of Plastic Injection Moulding

We do not look at the challenges individually, but in the overall process. We accompany your projects from design to series product. The goal: an efficient, stable and cost-effective manufacturing solution.

  1. Evaluate component and requirement profile

  2. Compare concepts and define injection moulding processes

  3. Select machine series and design injection moulding machine

  4. Optimally coordinate machine & peripherals

  5. Run-in, analyse and optimise production process

  6. Identify and exploit energy saving potentials

  7. Making digital products work for process optimisation

Result:

  • More stable injection moulding processes

  • Shorter cycle times

  • Improved component quality

Our Application Engineering Services
Joint Development Projects

Do you want to manufacture a new component and select the right technology for it?

We support you as a development partner in the implementation of new ideas. Your requirements are the guideline for application engineering when processing specific tasks in plastic injection moulding.

Our services:

  • Determine whether the planned production concept for the new component is promising

  • Define a production concept

  • Trials to answer questions about feasibility, suitability of materials and process control

  • Evaluate component design statuses in order to identify possible difficulties in production at an early stage

  • Sampling of the tool to identify optimisation potentials

  • Optimise cycle time by parallelising machine movements

  • Set machine-friendly production without loss of productivity

  • Result: stable production process optimised for the lowest possible energy consumption

Global Technology Centres

You would like to check whether the injection moulding machine together with the mould delivers optimum results or whether a special injection moulding process is particularly suitable for your component?

You can carry out application tests in our technology centres, using moulds which we supply for testing, or even with your own injection mould.

Our services:

  • Carry out screening trials with special technologies to better assess how well they are suited to your applications

  • Testing the potential of machines with higher performance capacity

  • Optimise quality in plastic injection moulding production

  • Shorten cycle time with support from application technology

  • Investigate process limits with different materials

  • Test automation solution in combination with your tool

  • Reduce scrap rates in existing injection moulding processes

  • Sampling tools to produce prototypes and determine process settings for series operation

Optimisation and Support

Would you like to improve your part quality and process stability and shorten the cycle time during ongoing injection moulding processes?

We support you with the application technology service performance.boost and other comprehensive offers.

Our services:

  • Analyse challenges in critical processes

  • Participate in the initial commissioning of the manufacturing cell

  • Conduct training on special technologies

  • Present, test and introduce assistance systems

  • Increase process performance by optimising settings

  • Reduce cycle time by optimising machine movements
