More and more processors are using multi-color technology to enhance the appearance and functionality of their products - from smaller parts like toothbrush handles, to large automotive lenses and interior components. And you can now produce parts with extraordinary performance using different plastics in multi-layer structures. For example, a hard core of reinforced material with a surface of thermoplastic elastomer or rubber/thermoplastic composites can be used without requiring adhesive agents to replace rubber/metal composite structures.
The Engel standard machine is the ideal platform from which to build multi-color/multi-material system because our Modular Component System makes it easy to "mechanically integrate" discrete injection units on our standard machines.
