Coining / Injection Compression Molding (ENGEL Coinmelt)

The successful coining also known as injection-compression molding process extends injection molding capabilities by adding a compression movement of the clamping unit. This offers versatile capabilities depending on your application. Where melt distribution with substantially reduced clamping force is the major focus for molded parts with a large surface area, the process demonstrates its capabilities in the uniformity of the cavity pressure for thick-walled molded parts. This opens a large range of applications from automobile glazing, through optical lenses, to the molding of finest micro structures for innovative analysis applications in medical technology (lab-on-a-chip).
