Injection unit for cure time reduction

EFFICIENCY INCREASE THROUGH INCREASED OUTPUT

  • Injection volumes ........ 1,000 to 8,500 cm3
  • Injection pressure ........................ 2,200 bar

 

ADVANTAGES

  • Significantly shorter vulcanisation times
  • Complete emptying of the injection chamber
  • Reduced material viscosity with injection
  • Production with conventional or increased processing temperatures
  • Ergonomic strip feeding height
  • Can be used with cold runner systems
  • ACC (Adaptive Cure Control) for maximum process control

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The material is fed into the mould by the EF injection unit (FIFO), the secondary, vertically arranged E injection cylinder (ALL OUT) fully injects all the compound in the mould. Since no material remains in the injection unit it is possible to achieve higher process temperatures and therefore shorter cure times. Compound temperature can be adjusted during injection via the machine control and is stored as a mould specific process parameter like any other. Depending on the compound used, part geometry and process, it is possible to achieve optimum settings.
