Two weeks ago our wood production received a new CNC machining centre. On 19.03.2019, the plastics division also got a new machine. Split on two trucks, the new injection moulding machine arrived at the plant in Lohr and was immediately taken to its new place in the plastics machine park.
The purchase of a new machine was unavoidable for capacity reasons, as Bernd Köhler, head of the Plastics Division, explained. The injection moulding machine is a two-component machine, which can process two different plastics into one moulded part, with an integrated removal robot. The finished product consists e.g. of a reinforced core material and a decorative skin material and is therefore perfectly suited for the production of seat shells. Compared to other machines, the Engel duo also requires little space and has a modern industry 4.0-capable control system and an excellent user interface.
“The new machine complements our machine park ideally and will take us a step further in the direction of rational production of high-precision components”, says Bernd Köhler about the new injection moulding machine.
