Solutions for Thin Wall Injection Moulding

Save Material and Reduce Cycle Time

With over 20 years’ experience in thin wall injection moulding, we have designed two dynamic and high-precision powerhouses with our hybrid and fully electric machines e-speed and e-motion. They are especially suitable for applications with high to extreme flow-path to wall-thickness ratios.

Your Advantages with ENGEL Solutions for Thin-Wall Injection Moulding
Short cycle times thanks to all-electric clamping unit
Picture shows toggle clamping unit

For the requirements of thin wall injection moulding, we have developed a clamping unit with an encapsulated five-point toggle lever. This not only ensures dry cycle times of well under two seconds, but also perfect cleanliness in the mould cavity. All moving elements, as well as the ejector, are sealed and prevent the formation of oil mist or dirt accumulation.

Reduced production costs through electric drives

Water-cooled servo-electric drives make the injection moulding machine the optimum symbiosis of efficiency and maximum performance. Reproducible cycles thus ensure consistent part quality for your thin-walled plastic parts.

Process reliability thanks to customised aggregates

We have developed dynamic and precise all-electric and hybrid injection units for the production of thin-walled plastic parts. Screws and non-return valves tailored to thin wall injection moulding ensure a smooth production flow - even with recycled material. Especially for geometries with extreme flow-path to wall-thickness ratios.

Increase the availability of your production plant

Shortest cycle times require machinery with high dynamics. Large batch sizes mean continuous operation 24/7. Our service experts are like our machines - available to you round the clock. So that if the worst comes to the worst, production of thin-walled plastic parts can start up again quickly.

Greiner - Leader in Thin-Walled Packaging

Greiner Packaging reduces the wall thickness of food containers by a quarter with e-speed injection moulding machines from ENGEL. At the same time, efficiency is increased. Climate neutrality is the goal of the Austrian packaging manufacturer.

Production of Thin-Walled Plastic Parts
  • Thin Wall Injection Moulding with Stack Mould

    Margarine tubs made of polypropylene are produced on our fully electric e-speed injection moulding machine with integrated in-mould labelling (IML).

  • Thin Wall Injection Moulding with In-Mould Labelling (IML)

    A double-cavity mould for 1-litre buckets with reduced wall thickness and IML shows what our fastest hybrid packaging machine can do.

  • Production of a Thin-Walled Cartridge

    In the production of cartridges, the e-speed demonstrates uncompromising precision and maximum speed - even with complex components.
