Maastricht, The Netherlands -- Fill Machine Engineering says its speed mc mould carrier, flextrac transport system and new smart-vision quality-control system define new production standards, a view which it feels was confirmed at UTECH Europe 2012, held 17 -19 April in Maastricht.
For polyurethanes, Fill supplies what it sees as "a perfect mix." Customers and trade visitors were able to see this for themselves at the UTECH international event, said Fill, noting its ability as a full-range provider for PU plant engineering -- from the idea to the finished component, everything comes from a single source.
This enables optimal exploitation of synergies. Productivity is increased, quality improved, and a maximum level of flexibility achieved. "The more flexibly machine operators can react to differing process and handling times, the more effective the employment of systems and materials. Those who apply leverage here save costs and resources," said Wilhelm Rupertsberger, manager of Fill's Plastics Competence Center, in a company statement.
Fill developed the speed mc mould carrier especially for rapid foam systems. With its unique drive concept, closing times of as little as two seconds can be achieved.
Thanks to its modular design, Fill's flextrac transport system allows diverse logistics routes, adapted to a customer's available space.
And, in the form of the smart vision solution, Fill provides an innovative image processing system that integrates into the machines and is used for different monitoring tasks. smart vision solution is capable of 100 percent reliable type recognition, testing for completeness, position detection and quality control.
