Exhibitors will show sophisticated equipment and systems for formulation metering, foam diffusion and reaction injection molding at NPE.
Cannon USA Inc. (Booth N4863): Model b2G low-pressure metering unit to control the dispensing of small quantities of polymer formulation for cost-effective gasket manufacturing. Diffuser technology for optimal foam density distribution in refrigerator cabinets. Model and operational videotapes of an automated turnkey system for production of large insulation panels for container transport.
Videoconference demonstrations of CarDio liquid carbon dioxide technology as the blowing agent in the manufacture of flexible slab-stock foams and the technology's CannOxide solutions for molded foam applications with lower formulation costs and potential density reductions of 15-30 percent.
Decker Industries Inc. (Booth E9602): Right-angle, hydraulically actuated RIM mix Decker Pocket Head with capability to dispense small to medium-size shots of polyurethane foam or elastomer for potting of air filter caps and small molded parts or castings.
X-Y-Z robot for use with Decker's high-pressure or low-pressure PU meter, mix and dispensing equipment for panel air filters, gaskets and production line dispensing of small molded parts or castings. Hot-water and surfactant purge system for Decker line of low-pressure, mechanical mix, PU dispensing machines.
Krauss-Maffei Corp. (Booth S1367): Long Fibre Injection (LFI) Unit 28/38-8/12, which automatically cuts glass fibers directly at the mixing head and meters into the reaction mix during pouring to make PU parts; a gas-addition nucleation unit that provides carbon dioxide to urethane components to control density, called the GBE2000/CO2.
Williams, White & Co. (Booth N5594): Depiction of customized injection presses of 200 tons and larger and examples of products created with these compression molding, structural foam and injection/structural molding machines.
