Solutions for Thin Wall Injection Molding

Save Material and Reduce Cycle Time

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

Your Advantages with ENGEL Solutions for Thin Wall Injection Molding
All-electric clamping unit for short cycle times

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

Reduced production costs thanks to electric drives

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

Process reliability thanks to customized injection units

We offer dynamic and precise all-electric and hybrid injection units for the production of thin-walled plastic parts. Screws and non-return valves, optimized for thin wall injection molding, 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

Short cycle times require machinery with high dynamics. Large batch sizes mean continuous operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Like our machines, our service team is available 24/7. If downtime occurs, production of thin-walled plastic parts can start up again quickly.

Greiner – Leader in Thin-Walled Packaging

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

Production of Thin-Walled Plastic Parts
  • Thin Wall Injection Molding with Stack Mold

    Margarine cups made of polypropylene are produced on our e-speed injection molding machine with integrated in-mold labeling (IML).

  • Thin Wall Injection Molding with In-Mold Labeling

    A double-cavity mold for 1-liter pails with reduced wall thickness and IML shows what our fastest hybrid packaging machine can do.

  • Production of a Thin-walled Cartridge

    When producing cartridges, the e-speed demonstrates high precision and maximum speed - even with complex parts.
