means that the E-mac 130 offers the largest tie-bar spacing among all-electric injection moulding machines with a comparable clamping force, according to Engel. All movements of the Engel E-mac – including the nozzle movement and ejection – are performed by servo-electric drives. This means that the machine achieves high overall efficiency. If re- quired, a servo-hydraulic unit can be integrated into the machine frame without requiring addition- al space. The E-mac machine is designed to be particularly maintenance-friendly. Ergonomics were the focus of attention in the positioning of inter- faces and the barrel design. The new size enables Engel to adapt the machine even more specifically to the requirements of the application in order to leverage efficiency potentials in an even better way. Apart from the drive technology, which is adjusted for every application, numerous other factors contribute to energy efficiency in injection moulding, says Engel. Among them are the insulation of the barrel, the efficient design of machine components and the choice of clamping force. The smaller the machine, the lower its energy consumption. Due to the tie-bar-less design, Engel


Clarified PP delivers the goods when it comes to thin-wall e-commerce packaging

Polypropylene (PP) has a key role to play in replacing glass as the material of choice for thin- wall packaging, especially for e-commerce applications — but not just any polypropylene. NX®

UltraClear® PP, made exclusively with Milliken’s Millad® is the ideal substitute in such situations.

Why? Because PP resin made using Millad NX 8000 ECO is strong, durable, lightweight, and highly recyclable, all while offering glass-like clarity. Low-density PP packaging greatly improves impact resistance during shipping while also reducing weight. This helps brand owners to enhance sustainability and lower their overall carbon footprint.

But the benefits don’t end there. Independent tests conducted by UL (Underwriters Laboratories) have

shown that Millad NX 8000 ECO offers converters faster production rates and average energy savings of 10% on clarified polypropylene parts. This has earned the additive a UL Environmental Claim Validation label that brand owners can display on their injection molded parts to help bolster their sustainability credentials.

Meet NX UltraClear PP — the answer to the demands of e-commerce packaging.

Left: The requirements for small actuators for connector systems are high. All-elec- tric injection moulding machines are preferred for this application

Victory technology enables the use of large and bulky moulds on relatively small injection moulding machines, which leads to a constructive use of energy-saving potential.

Injection moulding machines from Boy are designed to be energy-efficient, reports the company. The servo-motor pump drive saves 50% on energy compared to other drive technologies and more than that for some applications. Due to the low current consumption and the effectively
