Weight and thickness of the laptop are charging a greater importance in the market for what now the challenge for the decorated plastic packaging is to reduce both factors. In addition, l to extreme thinness of the laptop lids are particularly relevant in some models that need to be manufactured with a resistant to UV rays label including an anti scratch coating using a technique that reduces to the maximum torque.
During the event in Shanghai, Engel will show live the functioning of the new technology developed by the Austrian company in collaboration with other companies. To do this will use a fuel transfer Engel duo with a clamping force of 500 tons. The machine is equipped with a compression and labelling in mold package. The tag is inserted, is deposited and the finished parts will be collected with a robot model Engel viper 40. The mold will be supplied by Inmold Technology of Suzhou. Other partners in the development of this project are Bayer MaterialScience, Pröll, Böhler drop forging shop and Mold-Masters.
