Reduce Energy Consumption of Your Injection Molding Machine Sustainably
With the Be the first. Be efficient. initiative, we offer you the solution for increasing electricity prices.
Energy costs are rising and electricity suppliers are increasing their prices. But your company cannot increase prices overnight. This might ruin your calculations.
We focus not only on the injection molding machine but on the entire production cell. The combination of temperature control, intelligent device communication and smart process control leads to maximum efficiency of your cells. In this way, the electricity consumption as well as the CO2 emissions of your injection molding machine can be reduced by up to 67% - depending on the application and machine.
Often, the power consumption of the injection molding machine makes less than 50% of the total consumption of the injection molding cell.
For this reason, the injection molding system must be considered as a whole when looking at energy. High efficiency is already standard when buying injection molding machines by ENGEL. Our target is to find the most efficient solution for your requirements. With integrated temperature control solutions and intelligent device communication, up to 67% of electricity and CO2 can be saved.
In addition, there are other technical specifications, such as accessibility, precision requirements, or even available floor space, which must be considered. Therefore, it’s necessary to look at the whole process to find the best solution and reduce your injection molding machine's energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Therefore, ENGEL presents its Green Fleet as well as our efficiency packages.
Electricity savings potential for injection molding machines - depending on technology
As the above graphic shows, ENGEL injection molding machines are already at the top in terms of saving electricity. Our engineers and developers have already greatly reduced the energy consumption of ENGEL injection molding machines in recent years. Servo-hydraulic machines consume less than 60% compared to hydraulic injection molding machines with a variable pump. Energy consumption can usually be cut in half for all-electric injection molding machines.
To provide our customers with even more efficient injection molding machines, we have created efficiency packages. These packages, consisting of integrated temperature control and intelligent assistance systems, manage to reduce the energy consumption of your injection molding machine by an additional 20% on average.
The Most Efficient Solution for You
Highly dynamic servo motors guarantee maximum efficiency in movements.
A compactly designed toggle lever ensures a short machine design and thus a small footprint.
Optional servo-hydraulic unit integrated in the machine. You can still use your existing molds.
Patented clean toggle guarantees long service life with minimal lubricant consumption.
Efficient use of the mold space. When it comes to easy accessibility or low ceiling heights, tie-bar-less technology is the way to go.
Optional electric dosing units offer maximum efficiency with the highest precision in the injection unit of the servo-hydraulic machines.
Our integrated temperature control solution e-flomo is the benchmark in the field of efficient mold temperature control.
All ENGEL servo-hydraulic machines are equipped with the ecodrive. This guarantees maximum power savings for your injection molding machine.
Our technical experts are happy to help you calculate the savings of your application.
Saving electricity when producing parts with injection molding machines is now more important than ever. The efficiency packages include temperature control solutions and intelligent software solutions by ENGEL; those products are great resources for saving.
The savings potential for temperature control is huge. That is why we have developed the best integrated temperature control solution currently on the market. The combination of intelligent software, iQ flow control, the flow control system e-flomo and our own temperature control units e-temp enables great energy savings.
When the machine learns how much temperature control is needed and transfers this information to the right equipment, there is a high potential of reducing energy consumption in injection molding which makes your machines probably the most efficient ones on the market.
Contact us and let’s calculate your possible savings. We look forward to your inquiry!
