Engineering Solution is using Macromelt hot melt adhesives from Henkel to provide the manufacturing industry with a complete low-pressure moulding service. The companies’ partnership extends from product design consultancy and mould tool manufacture through to the prototype and batch production of ready-to-ship assemblies.

Macromelt moulding is a class between casting and injection. The technology is suitable for encapsulating and enclosing delicate components to provide protection in tough environments.

Typical applications are found in the automotive, medical, aerospace, military and security fields — areas where the product or assembly is of high value or carries a high cost of failure.

The technology is also being used on data-logging devices such as animal tags and sensors to provide information for preventative maintenance, as well as a safety-at-sea device.

Key benefits of product application

  • Macromelt is non-aggressive, highly cost effective and fast
  • Low pressures — typically 2–20 bar — mean lower-cost tools can be employed
  • Cycle time for typical single cavity mould is between 10 and 50 seconds depending on the shot size
