Injection Moulding Plastic Car Body Elements

Aesthetics and Function Moulded with ENGEL

The shift to electrically powered, self-driving vehicles is evident in automotive designs. Produce lightweight, high-quality plastic components for car bodies with function integration and set trends with ENGEL. Thanks to our technologies and injection moulding machines, you are already equipped for future developments today.

Advantages of ENGEL in Plastic CarBody Part Production
Intelligent body parts with ENGEL technologies

Produce lightweight plastic car body parts with functional integration using our wide range of injection moulding processes. With film back moulding, for example, you can produce front panels that are permeable to radar and lidar beams. Scratch-resistant add-on parts with self-healing surfaces can be produced with PUR flooding. Composite parts are the best choice for lightweight design. They reduce the vehicle weight and improve crash properties. Our experts support your with their expertise from design to series production.

Two-platen injection moulding machine duo for large body parts

Parts with a large projected area and/or high shot weights can be produced economically with our duo machine series. It combines compact external dimensions with large mould spaces and a wide clamping force range. Efficient servo-hydraulic drives keep power consumption low. For particularly large plastic car body parts, we also offer solutions with clamping forces well above 55,000 kN.

Save energy costs thanks to servo-hydraulic drive

An injection moulding machine does not necessarily have to be electrically driven to be energy efficient. Our servo-hydraulic drive concept ecodrive is only active when machine movements actually take place. The fixed displacement pump then runs within the optimum range. Reduce your electricity costs as well as heat and noise emissions in the production area.

Fast support around the clock at ENGEL
