Machines provide modularity

Tailor-made customization, short delivery times, and competitive pricing are the key features Engel maintains for its recently launched Victory line of presses, the new standard for the company?s baseline tiebarless machines. Presently available in three models from 82.5 to 165 tons, plans call for building them up to 600 tons. Victory machines share a common tiebarless platform, and baseline models come equipped with all the features to do 80 percent of the GP molding jobs out there.But Victory machines also share in their ability to accommodate optional power and control upgrades for handling tougher stuff, like technical parts and thin-wall packaging. Engel says building Victory machines at its facilities in Europe, North America, and Korea with global standards of modularity enable the manufacturer to hold the price line for its Victory presses at 10 to 20 percent below other hydraulics in their class.Victory Tech machines are the baseline models. Victory Power presses are powered up for molding complex technical parts, like those requiring lots of mold actions. Victory Speed models are accumulator-juiced racers with electric screw drives. All three models can be further diversified with optional add-ons for multimolding and molding rubber, including liquid silicone rubber. Engel showed four Victory machine cells at K 2001, demonstrating inmold decoration of thin-wall parts, PC/TPE 2K stack molding, microcellular foaming, and water injection molding.
