The presentation will provide an introduction to two novel process technologies pioneered by ENGEL as well as a review of “what’s new for 2020” for two established processing technologies for injection molding. The novel processes covered in the webinar will be amorphous metal molding and skinmelt. For the established processes we will take a look at what’s new in film-backed molding and foaming.

Primary Topics:

  • Foammelt
    • All new and improved ENGEL foaming equipment.
    • How you benefit from it.
  • Foilmelt​​​​​​​
    • Advances in film technology like functional integration and their impact on the injection molding process.
  • Amorphous metal molding
    • What are AMMs, how are they processed, what equipment does it take and types of metals to choose from.
  • Skinmelt​​​​​​​
    • A new co-injection technology with reduced processing complexity and requiring simpler hardware than conventional tech.
