"The automotive injection moulding market is in full swing once more, the key topics, which are at the same time the growth and technology drivers, being lightweight construction, surfaces and functional integration", reports Michael Fischer, Head of Sales Technologies with ENGEL Austria in Schwertberg/Austria, looking forward to constructive talks in Mannheim. ENGEL will be presenting the following technologies: joinmelt for thermoplastic hollow parts with complex shapes in a single step; organomelt for thermoplastic hybrid structures in mass production; clearmelt for scratch-proof, quality surfaces with a 3D effect; glazemelt for large surface, torsion free glazing components; dolphin for soft-touch surfaces in automobile interiors.
