Tie-barless machines for universal applications. Available in three series – ENGEL victory spex, ENGEL victory tech and ENGEL victory combi – the tie-bar-less ENGEL victory is the ideal modular system for cost-effective injection moulding production. In 2009, tie-bar-less technology marked its 20th anniversary: two decades of the technology has supplied 55,000 machines to 10,000 satisfied customers.
Production with injection machines which are one or two clamping force classes smaller
The ENGEL Victory tie-barless injection moulding machine covers the clamping force range from 280 to 5000 kN. In fact, the range of applications is considerably broader, as the moulded part to be produced is not limited by the clamping force but by the platen size. Large mould fixing platens and the wide delivery chute of the ENGEL victory guarantee low machine investments, because with the ENGEL victory a machine with a lower clamping force will do the moulding job just as well. Particularly when using large and bulky moulds, substantially lower investments are required for machines. Thanks to the advantages of tie-bar-less technology, the ENGEL victory is the ideal machine for technical and thick-section parts.
Scope for greater barless moulding machine accessibility
Tie-bar-less technology means unbeatable mould dimensions. The barrier-free mould area can accommodate large moulds easily, even with bulky core-pulls. Generously dimensioned mould fixing platens can be utilised to their limits (and often beyond) and even tall moulds can be changed quickly. The robust, low friction design also reduces maintenance costs. ENGEL's patented Flex-Link system and the standard platen parallelism setting ensure maximum platen parallelism whilst minimising mould wear.
There are also benefits in terms of automation for this barless moulding machine. Robots and automation equipment have free access to the mould area, which means parts can be removed faster. Between them, the machine and the robots only have small footprints; they are even able to operate efficiently in low-ceilinged halls.
