First Dolphin series production has started

The production line, which is operated by Sole at the Daimler works premises in Wörth, Germany, is composed of an Engel duo machine with an horizontal intermediate rotary table system, a multiple-axis industry robot, and equipment for physical foaming. First of all the carrier is injected and then foamed in place with a TPE in one total machine cycle. That is why the method represents an economic alternative for the production of hard/soft components in comparison to other conventional multi-component and foaming methods.Dolphin has been developed by Engel in cooperation with mould manufacturer Georg Kaufmann, Busslingen, Switzerland, as well as with BASF, Ludwigshafen, Germany, and P-Group, Filderstadt, Germany.
