Engel’s newest all-electric injection molding machine line comes stateside

Engel's e-Mac, which launched last year in Europe as a "simple all-electric injection molding machine that can tackle precise components" is now being promoted in North America as a "powerful, precise, compact - and economical" injection molding machine, with stock available at Engel sites on the East (York, PA) and West (Corona, CA) coasts for speedy deliveries.

The e-Mac is intended to supplement Engel's existing all-electric injection molding machine, the e-motion, with four sizes: 55, 80, 110, and 195 tons. The e-motion ranges from 60 to 560 tons. Equipped with Engel's CC 200 machine controller, the e-mac is fully modular, allowing processors to customize their press. Servo-electric's power all drives in the machine, so that injection and metering, as well as mold and ejector movements, have precision and energy efficiency.

The drives are operated by an axis system and stabilized intermediate circuit. Boosting efficiency is a system wherein braking energy is recovered, used, or fed back to the grid. The synchronous movements of drives also ensure speed, with acceleration of more than 20m/s2 for the injection axis.  

e-Mac's come standard with SPI robot interface, corepull software and interface, ceramic heaterbands, parallel plasticizing, and programmable I/O's, among other off-the-shelf features. Robot control is integrated allowing automation to be operated via the machine, with one control unit, unified data management, and improved productivity via fully synchronized movements.  

The e-Mac toured Europe beginning in February, starting in France, before moving through Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Germany and stopping in 12 countries in all.
