In addition, the Engel packaging business unit will also display its all-electric e-cap injection-molding machine. According to the company, the e-cap 3440/460 US is energy efficient with low cooling water requirements, and includes features such as a "premium" quality injection unit, increased ejector force, and a reinforced clamping drive.

The e-cap has a cycle time of less than 3 seconds, and injection speeds of 450 mm per second.

"All-electric injection molding machines are constantly gaining in importance, above all in the field of high performance and high speed applications," stated Walter Jungwirth, head of Engel business unit packaging, in a news release.
