ENGEL Service Level Agreement for Injection Molding

For Higher Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

To meet your customers' requirements, efficient machines and demand-oriented support are a must. With the ENGEL Service Level Agreement (SLA), you can specify the scope of services according to the needs of your injection molding operation. With a customized service portfolio, you can improve your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) by up to 20%. Downtime is minimized, and your machine performance and the quality of production are increased.

Your Advantages with the ENGEL Service Level Agreement
100% customized service contract

The Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a contract between your injection molding business and ENGEL that defines the scope of our services. Your Service Level Agreement is unique to you and always flexible - just like your requirements. Together, we evaluate the SLA contract at regular intervals to check what services make most sense for your injection molding production and revise it if necessary.

Increase your OEE by up to 20%*.

With the ENGEL Service Level Agreement, you can increase your Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) by up to 20%. But how can you do this? There are many ways to improve production efficiency: Predictive maintenance, optimized machine processes, settings for low-wear operation, early planning of the digital and on-site support strategy or the optimum plasticizing setting. The result: fewer problems getting your products to customers and more efficient production.

* Depending on production parameters, produced parts, type of machine, and other factors.

Achieve Planning Goals Every Time

Based on the Service Level Agreement, you can control your maintenance activities. ENGEL takes responsibility for ensuring that the service activities agreed in the SLA contract are fulfilled in your injection molding production. This guarantees a high level of production reliability and makes planning your production schedule easier.

What Does Overall Equipment Effectiveness or OEE Mean?

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a well-established measure of equipment availability, performance, and product quality relative to production time. OEE is a standard practice used by manufacturing companies for early defect detection. It enables them to initiate appropriate and immediate optimization measures.

What are the Advantages of a Service Level Agreement?

OEE Calculation and Potentials for Increased Production Efficiency

  1. The length of your work shift corresponds to the maximum production time.

  2. Time for planned maintenance is deducted from this.

  3. Unplanned downtime can occur, which costs additional time.

  4. Time-consuming adjustments must be scheduled due to performance losses.

  5. Some of your components are rejected or need to be reworked.

Good parts are produced only during part of your actual production time. This is expressed by the defined key figure Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). But how to increase your effective production time? The products included in the ENGEL service level agreement make it possible. An increase in OEE of up to 20% is realistic.
