Munich, Germany - KraussMaffei has received an order, "worth well over a million euros" from an Asian customer for a double-band system to produce polyurethane/polyisocyanurate sandwich panels for the construction industry, the company said 30 July. The German machinery supplier said the news justifies its recent decision to move into this market.
The system for the customer in Asia, which is 36 metres long with a working width of 1300 mm, is due to go into operation in 2010.
The company said it has developed a special infeed geometry to minimise vertical movement and variations in feed rate, which results in a "highly uniform horizontal movement of the upper and lower bands." A temperature control system has also been fitted, which capable of heating the bands up to 80 degC, the company added. (RD)
