Digital solutions in injection moulding

With intelligent machines to a smart factory

ENGEL‘s digitalization strategy is perfectly aligned with the life cycle of your products. From part design and mold sampling to production and maintenance & service. We have the right digital solutions to help you utilize the full potential of your injection moulding machines and sustainably reduce your carbon footprint.

Your advantages with our digital solutions
Compensate process fluctuations for constant part quality

If deviations during injection moulding production occur, our digital solutions will react immediately, without affecting the cycle time. For example, the changeover point and the holding pressure profile are adjusted to current conditions shot by shot. This ensures consistently high product quality.

Reduce energy consumption and scrap

Our digital assistance tools determine the optimum production parameters during ongoing production, suggest them or set them automatically. These settings reduce energy and water consumption during temperature control. But alsominimise scrap and mould wear through optimised clamping force settings.

Reduce batch fluctuations when using recycled materials

Recycled materials are naturally subject to greater batch fluctuations than virgin materials. The digital solutions from our ENGEL’s inject 4.0 programme help to significantly reduce influences on the process, automatically. Recyclates can thus be used for a wider range of applications than before.

Everything in view for better planning of resources

Our digital solutions ensure more transparency in production by connecting the machine plant and third-party peripherals at multiple locations. In addition, you achieve even better utilisation and increased efficiency of the machinery through optimal capacity planning.

Simple operation for minimising errors

Digital assistance systems have to make it as easy as possible for the operator to be proficient in even the most complex applications. Our digital products simplify your daily work with the injection moulding machine. Therefore, errors during operation are reduced. They also support with set-up, start-up and shut-down of production.

State-of-the-art security standards protect your data

ENGEL complies with the latest security standards for all digital solutions and works with uniform, secure and service-oriented communication interfaces such as OPC UA. You can rely on smooth and secure operation.

The life cycle of your plastic product

The basis of digitisation strategy

Already during the design phase of your products and before starting series production, known as sampling, you can leverage great optimisation potentials with digital solutions. During production, intelligent assistance systems for shop floor management ensure high productivity. In the area of maintenance and service, intelligent monitoring and remote maintenance tools maximise your availability.

Design

With support of digital solutions, simulation and real measurement data can be matched with each other during trials.This closes the gap between simulation and the real injection moulding processand also accelerates process optimisation. Furthermore the duration of the start-up phase will be reduced.

Mould sampling

The typical preparations for mould sampling, such as calculation of the holding pressure time, cooling time, cycle time or shot volume, are optimised by our intelligent assistance systems. Series production can be started even faster.

Production

Improve the availability of your production machines and increase the quality of your products by using digital solutions. Thanks to intelligent assistance systems, the optimum production parameters are determined, actively suggested or automatically set during ongoing production.
