Friedrichshafen, Germany – PU machinery maker KraussMaffei unveiled its new midrange mixing and metering system at the International Trade Fair for Plastics Processing – Fakuma this week.
The RimStar Compact 16/16 is modular, which enables many different configurations, the firm said.
It can dispense 40 to 550 g/s with a mixture ratio of 1:1 and high-pressure pumps developed and produced in-house by KraussMaffei.
The machine’s transfer mixing head MK 8/12 ULKP-2KVV “ensures a laminar and splash-free pouring of the mixture into open moulds,” said the company.
As previously reported at UTECH-polyurethane.com, refrigerator maker Whirlpool uses RimStar machinery for the housings and foamed polyurethane insulating layer of the doors it manufactures in India.
