Donnelly Custom Manufacturing Upgrades Vertical Rotary Press

Engel machine aids production of complex insert-molded parts

Alexandria, MN (January 16, 2019)Donnelly Custom Manufacturing Company, a recognized leader in short-run injection molding for leading industrial OEMs, has installed a 70-ton Engel 330H Vertical Rotary Press at its operation in Alexandra, MN. The technically advanced rotary press improves efficiencies in the production of complex insert molded parts, helping Donnelly’s current and new customers speed the delivery of innovative and high-quality products – and in the process – gain a competitive advantage.

Originally purchased at NPE 2018, the Engel Vertical Rotary Press automates the production of complex insert molding procedures. An onboard camera and laser scan the molds to detect the presence and proper placement of inserts in order to protect the mold, provide ongoing quality control and obtain optimal productivity. The rotary press also features Industry 4.0 connectivity, furthering Donnelly’s manufacturing efficiencies by providing more precise control of the process.

The Engel press is another example of how Donnelly continually invests in technologies that allow us to cost-effectively deliver increasingly higher quality parts in shorter timeframes, when combined with our short-run expertise, advanced technologies put us in the best position to help OEMs effectively compete and thrive.

Ron Kirscht, President

The installation of the Engel vertical rotary press follows Donnelly’s purchase of a Toshiba 500-Ton All-Electric Press and Universal Robots’ UR5 Collaborative Robot earlier this year. The significant capital investments expand Donnelly’s capacity in injection molding and enhance its capabilities in value-added manufacturing services.

“By enhancing our capabilities with this new best-in-class machine, we continue to leverage technologies that ultimately help our customers succeed and lead with innovation,” said Jerry Bienias, vice president of operations at Donnelly.”
