Aimed at auto interior trim, it feeds a thin TPO film from a conঞnuous roll into the open mold, where it is so[ened by an IR heater held by a robot. The film is preformed with vacuum in the injecঞon mold and then back-injected with PP. The part is punched out of the roll in the mold; and a[er demold- ing comes a final laser trim. A finished part leaves the cell every 60 sec. The film imparts color, gloss, texture and feel—allowing producঞon of a variety of parts simply by changing films. Engel is demon- straঞng this by varying the part surface from a refined leather grain, including the seam, to a modern carbon-fiber look. Engel uses films from Benecke Kaliko, a member of the Conঞnental Group in Germany. To make a lighter, thinner part, the PP substrate is foamed with Trexel's MuCell microcellular process. The cell features an Engel duo 5160/1000 1100-ton two-platen press, an Engel viper linear robot, and Engel easiCell self-contained automaঞon unit with easix arঞculated robot, laser-cuমng staঞon, scrap granulator and takeoff conveyor. Other partners in the proj- ect are Georg Kaufmann Formenbau (Swit- zerland), Galvanoform Gesellscha[ für Glavanoplasঞk (Germany), HRSflow (Italy), ICO System Internaঞonal Coaঞng (Germany) and Borealis (Austria). The enঞre cell is oper- ated by the CC300 control of the injecঞon machine. | (717) 764-6818 64
