At the Medical Day events, Engel also will showcase molding systems specifically designed for medical applications. Highlights include:

- An automated manufacturing cell equipped with automation equipment from Hekuma and a mold from Braunform making needle holders for insulin pens.
- Two all-electric e-mac injection molding machines, one of which will run a compact, side-gated 64-cavity runnerless pipette tip mold supplied by Cavaform International LLC.
The event also includes an on-site Partner Fair with exhibits from a variety of mold, automation, raw material, and auxiliary equipment suppliers.
