                  Minimal wall thicknesses, perfect cavity filling or a high-gloss finish: ENGEL variomelt allows to produce state-of-the-art consumer electronics housings that meet the strictest requirements. This variothermal injection moulding technology is ideally suited for overmoulding PC-ABS onto pre-moulded organic sheets. The result: extremely smooth surfaces despite different shrinkage rates and very thin wall thicknesses.

                  • flexible applications – ideal for state-of-the-art injection moulding of consumer electronics, light guide panels, lenses, styling parts & co.
                  • optimal results – robust housing or crystal-clear parts with thin walls & smooth surfaces
                  • perfectly combinable – with other ENGEL injection moulding technologies such as organomelt, optimelt, coinmelt, foilmelt
                  • perfect finish – thanks to overmoulding with translucent piano black
                • ENGEL Clean Room Components
