Swiss mould maker SCHÖTTLI is focusing on the precision, quality and durability of its injection moulds. The company once more fulfilled this market requirement with the acquisition of a tiebar-less, all-electric injection moulding machine for its Customer Technology Centre.
SCHÖTTLI AG has been manufacturing high-quality injection moulds for more than fifty years. Today the programme includes moulds for the medical technology, closures and packaging sectors. Each mould manufactured by SCHÖTTLI is inspected at the in-house Customer Technology Centre in order to establish the optimum injection parameters and the appropriate process controls. Five injection moulding machines with a clamping force of up to 400 tonnes are available for this purpose. Recently, an ENGEL e-motion 100 was the first tie-bar-less machine to be put into service at the SCHÖTTLI Technology Centre. The all-electric ENGEL e-motion machines are particularly suited to fast applications requiring top precision.
The tie-bar-less design has the advantage of providing easy access to the clamping unit and thus more room for moulds and automation. In addition, the ENGEL all-electric injection moulding machines are particularly energy-efficient.
Until recently we didn't have an all-electric machine at out Technology Centre. With the ENGEL e-motion we've enhanced our capabilities in the increasingly important test mould sector with a fast and powerful machine, says Alexander Anders, Head of Applications Technology at SCHÖTTLI.
