Citing increased demand for simple all-electric injection molding machines that can tackle precise components, Engel (Schwertberg, Austria) has launched a new all-electric machine line, the e-mac, that the company says will supplement its "tried and tested" e-motion series. The line launched this month with clamping forces of 50, 75, and 100 tonnes, with plans to add a 180-tonne machine before the end of the year.
Engel noted in a release that its e-motion machines are used primarily in the field of medical technology and for fast-cycling and multi-component applications, with the new e-mac called a "particularly economical alternative for technical injection molding applications." The e-motion range features 8 clamp-force sizes from 55 to 500 tonnes. The e-mac joins the speed, victory, duo, and PETsystems for the machine maker.
