To explore the topic of digitalisation in injection moulding, which has long been an integral part of Engel's strategy, the Austrian manufacturer is organising the Digital Days, scheduled to take place at its sites in Schwertberg and St. Valentin (Austria) from 18 to 20 June.

"In an age in which digitalisation is making unstoppable inroads, we offer concrete responses to burning issues in the industry. We are discussing how to get started with digitalisation in a successful way, the strategies that can be developed for implementation in your own company and the central role that artificial intelligence will play in the future", said Hannes Zach, Sales Manager for Digital Solutions at Engel, emphasising the importance of the event.

Spread over three days, the programme offers a versatile mix of theoretical insights and hands-on applications. Giving the customer a voice is an essential part of the Digital Days, with plastics processors who have successfully implemented digital solutions in their production reporting on their experiences at first-hand. The aim of this exchange is to make the digital production universe tangible and understandable for all participants. "It is important for us to convey the fact that digitalisation offers added value for any company," as Hannes Zach, Sales Manager for Digital Solutions at Engel pointed out.

Five selected stations at the St. Valentin plant will give visitors insights into the practical benefits offered by Engel solutions in areas such as sample inspection, production and maintenance. An iQ User Community will take place on both the opening and closing day of the event series. It specifically targets the practical needs of process technicians and machine operators.
