The Mixture Does It
Promix at the Fakuma 2018
Promix Solutions AG of Winterthur, Switzerland, is presenting solutions from its core competencies mixing, foaming, and cooling for plastics processing at the Fakuma. Besides injection molding processing, film extrusion is right up front.
The avoidance of flow lines is the big challenge when hard/soft parts are produced by 2C injection molding. Similar difficulties occur when processing TPE, because to achieve the desired color range often requires high masterbatch contents. Quality problems can be eliminated at low expense by replacing the existing machine nozzle with a mixing nozzle.
Promix will present examples from both application areas. For instance, a mixing nozzle can eliminate color streaking in the soft component (TPE) of an inert gas welding device produced by 2C injection molding. In another case, the use of a mixing nozzle can not only eliminate color streaking in hand grips for measuring devices from TPE, but also reduce the masterbatch content from 7 to 2.5 %.
