On the way to the smart factory: digitalisation in injection moulding
Based on an All-Electric e-mac injection moulding machine, we demonstrate our entire portfolio of digital assistance systems. The application of a connector shows that digitalisation also brings great advantages for near-standard components. In addition to this exhibit, we have our own large area at the stand where we will be happy to advise you on all aspects of digitalisation.

Software for plastic parts development5 September 2022
Digital solutions transfer simulations from the product development phase of plastic parts into reality.
Saves energy and space25 August 2022
ENGEL extends its series of linear robots for K 2022 with the new viper 4. The use of low-voltage drive technology significantly boosts the energy efficiency. This innovation is another building block towards establishing a neutral energy footprint in plastics processing.
iQ hold control: New smart assistant for nominal values shortens sample validation process20 June 2022
ENGEL is introducing a new member of the iQ product family at K 2022. The new smart assistant for nominal values goes by the name of iQ hold control; it automatically determines the optimum holding pressure time to help process technicians achieve massive time savings.
CO2 footprint: an opportunity for the plastics industry15 June 2022
Rising energy and raw material prices see plastics processing companies face new challenges. "Reducing the CO2 footprint even faster gives companies leeway. Competitiveness and resilience are boosted," as Dr. Gerhard Dimmler, CTO of the ENGEL Group, emphasises in the run-up to K 2022. "ENGEL is the role model when it comes to solutions that save CO2 in injection moulding. And that is precisely what we are demonstrating in Düsseldorf this October."
How Schöfer saves time in injection moulding troubleshooting with the ENGEL iQ process observer
Data and facts instead of pure intuition: find out how Schöfer, an Upper Austrian manufacturer of high-quality plastic components, brings transparency into the injection moulding process and eliminates errors by using our digital assistance system iQ process observer.
How to automatically optimise the clamp force in your injection moulding process | iQ clamp control
Digital solutions help you to leverage huge optimization potential in your injection moulding production. iQ clamp control, for example, automatically determines the necessary clamping force. This optimizes the production by saving time and additionally reducing wear of mould and machine.
Processing of recycled material with digital solutions | ENGEL smart machine
Processing of recycled material often causes headache due to broader fluctuating material properties – see how our digital solutions such as iQ weight control help you to achieve a stable production process even under difficult and fast-changing circumstances.
