Injection Molding Plastic Auto Parts and Car Body Components

Aesthetics and Function Molded with ENGEL

The shift to electric vehicles and autonomous driving is evident in automotive designs. Produce lightweight, high-quality plastic components for the vehicle exterior with functional integration, and set trends. Be ready for future developments with state-of-the-art technologies and injection molding machines by ENGEL.

Advantages of ENGEL in Plastic Car Part Production
Smart car parts with ENGEL technologies

Produce lightweight plastic car parts with integrated functionality by using a variety of injection molding process technologies. With film back molding, for example, you can mold front panels that are permeable to radar and lidar beams. Scratch-resistant exterior auto parts with self-healing surfaces can be produced with PUR flooding. Composite parts are the best choice for lightweight design. They reduce vehicle weight while improving crash properties. Our experts support you from design to series production.

You can produce components with a large projected area and/or high shot weights economically with our duo machine series. The machines combine compact external dimensions with large mold spaces and a wide clamping force range. Efficient servo-hydraulic drives keep power consumption low. For particularly large plastic car parts, we also offer solutions with clamping forces well above 55,000 kN.

Save energy costs thanks to servo-hydraulic drive

An injection molding machine does not necessarily have to be electrically driven to be energy efficient. Our servo-hydraulic drive concept ecodrive is only active during machine movements. 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 24/7 support from ENGEL
