YORK -- Uncompromising quality, complete traceability, and
accurate documentation. The medical and automotive industries are regulated by
standards, guidelines and laws governing the design of production lines and
processes, as well as proof of conformity to regulations. An important prerequisite in
qualification is the calibration of the processing machines. With Ever-Q, ENGEL offers
their expertise in the calibration and conformance of your injection molding machine.
From the barrel temperature to the clamping force, injection speed and holding pressure to
repeatability of the cycle time: the Ever-Q documentation ensures that all machine
parameters conform to the required specifications. The ENGEL technician will perform over
20 series of measurements using independent calibrated devices, log the results and ensure
that any deviations are within the acceptable tolerances.
Ever-Q allows plastics manufacturers to benefit from the over 15 years experience of our
ENGEL experts in the factory calibration of injection molding machines. This extensive
knowledge and experience represents security. It guarantees that suitable calibration
methods and measuring instruments are used, and the tolerance limits are defined according
to industry specifications. External calibration laboratories, which usually work for several
different branches of industry, have difficulty with this. A further advantage of the ENGEL
service: the wide range of injection molding machines installed enables ENGEL to offer the
Ever-Q calibration at a relatively low price.
Calibration is performed to a variety of international standards: in the automotive industry,
the requirements for quality management are defined, amongst others, by ISO 9000 and ISO
9001; in the medical industry, Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is the accepted set of
ENGEL is one of the global leaders in the manufacture of plastics processing machines. Today, the

supplier: Injection molding machines for thermoplastics and elastomers, and automation, with the
assurance that individual components are also competitive and successful in the world markets. With
eight production plants in Europe, North America and Asia (China, Korea) as well as subsidiaries and
representatives in over 85 countries, ENGEL offers its customers the optimal global support they need
to compete and succeed with new technologies and leading-edge production systems.
