Online spare parts finder

Engel has launched an online tool to make it easier for engineers to find spare parts for the company’s plastic processing machines.

“Because an injection molding machine or production cell consists of many parts, purchasing spare parts is often more complex than it might appear at first glance,” the company said.

Engel part finder can be used on a mobile device or a PC and allows users to take a picture of the part in question and define the image section to be used for the search. Alternatively, images can be emailed to the company. According to Engel, the database includes injection molding machines that are up to 20 years old, along with other systems.
