Plastic components for the car engine compartment

Injection moulding of functional components for various drives

Developments in the automotive industry constantly present injection moulders with new challenges: From increasing diversity in drive concepts to new technologies such as high-voltage systems. Whether classic combustion engines, hybrid engines or electric drives, our solutions for car engine compartments prepare you for the future.

Advantages with ENGEL in the production of components for car engine compartments
Meet the requirements of New Mobility

Electric cars in particular place higher demands on functional plastic parts in the engine compartment. Due to the nearly silent operation of electric motors, moving components must be precisely manufactured. Even the smallest irregularities can create an annoying background noise in the passenger compartment. The precision of our injection moulding machines ensures excellent dimensional accuracy of your injection moulded parts.

Safe processing of high-performance plastics

Plastic components for high-voltage drive systems of electric cars have to meet extreme requirements. These include insulating properties and temperature resistance. Often, this can only be achieved by using special materials such as polyketone. The plasticising of these high-performance plastics places high demands on both the material and the process. With our customised plasticising components and application technology support, you can achieve cost-effective production - even in challenging applications.

Weight reduction through lightweight construction technologies

Hybrid and electric drives are often significantly heavier than conventional combustion engines.To avoid a significant increase in the overall weight of these vehicles, weight must be saved elsewhere. With our wide range of weight reduction processes, you can produce lightweight parts with excellent mechanical properties for the car engine compartment.

Producing large parts with XXL injection moulding machines

Electric drive systems aim to become lighter. That’s why the housings of the drive batteries are often made of plastic. With our duo series, we offer particularly large injection moulding machines in clamping force ranges over 55,000 kN. You get a customised and cost-effective solution for large injection moulded parts.
