Simplified Operation and Shorter Set-up Times
Mixing Unit for LSR Dosing System silcomix
High system availability and easy handling are important factors in any effective production process. Keeping these in mind, Dopag, part of the Hilger & Kern Group, has additionally equipped its LSR dosing system silcomix with a newly designed mixing unit.
The dosing system meters and mixes all commercially available liquid silicone materials (LSR) in injection molding applications. Owing to the newly developed mixing unit, the processing of the material is now more efficient than ever. Compared to any other mixing unit available on the market, silcomix offers an important advantage: all its connections can be disassembled manually. The actual disassembly and replacement of a mixer or valve for color addition only take a few steps and almost no time. All disposable and stainless steel mixers available on the market can be used with the system easily.
This mixing unit can be further equipped with temperature control. The mixer is cooled by a water injection system, so that the material is kept at a constant temperature optimal for processing. Complete cooling aids at prolonging the lifespan of the processed goods. In this way, DOPAG silcomix ensures a stable process and high quality of the end product.
Modular Design for More Flexibility
A modular design of the unit gives users even more flexibility, since it allows them to swap individual components for different sized ones. This feature is Dopag’s answer to the customer’s constantly evolving needs, driven by new production processes that involve materials of increasingly low viscosity, and pot life and total processing time that are becoming shorter and shorter. According to the manufacturer, with silcomix, set-up times can be significantly shortened and system availability increased. In addition, maintenance time and interval are reduced by up to 75 percent.
