HTI Plastics installs a 420-ton Engel press with an integrated robot

HTI Plastics recently purchased a new 420-ton injection molding press from Engel with an integrated Engel Viper 20 robot. The versatile E-motion 1640/420 T WP US press is used to shape products for a variety of applications and expands the company’s services in various areas. It was delivered to the HTI plant in two stages at the beginning of May and was operational at the end of the month.

“This press was added in response to a new project from one of our customers,” said Troy Just, President of HTI Plastics. “This is just the latest example of HTI’s commitment to technology and our customers’ aspiration to always be one step ahead. By adding this press, we will be able to push the boundaries of plastics manufacturing initially in partnership with this customer as well as other customers who need this ability, ”said Just.

HTI Plastics operates a total of 32 injection molding presses in tonnages from 30 to 1,800 tons at its facility in Lincoln, NE.
