Engel manufacture injection moulding machines and automation, and are known for the capability to deliver integrated system solutions for bespoke applications. In the UK, Engel is the market leader in terms of the value and number of machines sold.
Operating solely in injection moulding, and with manufacturing in 8 production plants across Europe, North America and Asia, Engel turn over more than EUR1 billion making them the largest such manufacturer.
The Engel brand is synonymous with the unique tiebarless clamp system which has been in the market now for more than 25 years with over 50,000 machines in operation worldwide. The principle advantage of having no tiebars is the ability to fit larger moulds within a given machine size. There are also numerous secondary benefits, such as a complete freedom for automation solutions, faster mould change times, and a lower crane height necessary to load the tool.
Engel also lead the way in terms of large tonnage machines for automotive and packaging applications. Available with clamping force up to 5,500 tonnes, the Duo range was introduced in 1992 as the first 2 platen design on the market. Now with the new Hybrid Ecodrive system, they offer significantly reduced manufacturing cost through minimizing energy consumption.
Reducing energy consumption is foremost in most company’s plans. Here again, Engel offer technology leadership with comprehensive ranges of fully-electric machines for both standard and high speed applications up to a clamping force of 650 tonnes.
Engel UK can also be proud of their aftersales service. Since May 2015, the service department at the headquarters in Warwick has had its doors open during weekends, with the field service team scheduled over 7 days instead of 5.
