Engel hosts medical engineers.
With more than 130 participants, the med.con medical engineering conference organized by Engel Deutschland Technologieforum Stuttgart attracted a full house.
Experts in medical engineering from Germany as well as Italy, Austria and Switzerland took part in a blend of expert talks, live demonstrations and networking opportunities, as well as insights into the comprehensive range of services on offer at Engel's new site, the biggest technical center of any Engel subsidiary.
At med.con, Engel presented four medical engineering applications and a total of seven manufacturing cells. The production of pharmaceutical vessels on an Engel e-victory 440/120 injection molding machine using the inject2blow process was the first time the innovation had been seen in Germany. "Integrating injection molding and blow molding processes into a single injection mold means unbeatable efficiency," said Christoph Lhota, head of Engel's medical business unit. "Even small batch sizes can be manufactured extremely cost-effectively. We're getting a lot of enquiries at the moment, especially from the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors."
