    Corona Treatment of Parts with Any Thickness

    The linear plasma process, a new variant of corona treatment, is well suited for use with materials of any thickness. The surface of flat plastic sheet, ribbed sheet, polymer foams and composites can be modified using this process in order to obtain reliable bonding of adhesives, ink, paint and other coatings.   more

    Ceramic Seals for Hot Runner Nozzles

    For the first time, it is now possible to equip hot runner nozzles with gate seals made of high-strength, thermally insulating high-performance ceramic. The reduced heat transfer from the hot runner system to the mould translates into short cooling and cycle times.   more

    Reinforcing Press Fits

    Press fits between plastic parts and metal shaft are considerably more effective if the metal surface is modified in an appropriate manner. In extensive trials, chequered knurling has been found to be very well-suited as an aid to a positive connection.   more

    Direct Feeding of Calcium Carbonate During PVC Extrusion

    Usually, PVC and additives are combined in a hot/cold mixer to form a dry blend and then conveyed pneumatically to silos for intermediate storage. However, at higher loading levels, segregation of the calcium carbonate may result. This can be prevented by adding the calcium carbonate to the dry blend with the aid of a cold mixer immediately prior to entry into the extruder.   more

    Laser Welding with an Intermediate Film

    The newly developed technique of laser welding with an intermediate film can bond incompatible thermoplastics that could not be bonded previously. Using this variant of laser transmission welding, it has been possible for the first time to weld PA12 parts to components of PBT, PP and PE.   more

    Laser Welding of Fabric

    Laser welding of fabric made from synthetic fibres results in flexible, high-strength bonds. For production of airbags, for instance, the technique achieves high processing speeds and lends itself to automation. Airbags are installed in the seats and roofs of automobiles as supplemental restraint systems for increased occupant safety. They offer protection in the event of side-impact collisions or rollovers. However, in case of a rollover in particular, the airbags must remain inflated for ten seconds in order to provide meaningful protection. This can be assured only if the seams are airtight.   more

    Better Adhesion Through Plasma Treatment

    When producing complex components, different materials are combined with one another. With the aid of plasma pretreatment, the individual components can be cleaned and activated. This assures not only a good bond, but also make the otherwise necessary assembly steps unnecessary.   more

    Screw Coating for Optical Applications

    The CrAlON anti-adhesive PVD coating system reduces adhesion of melt to the surface of a screw considerably. This contributes to a reduction in the number of defective parts, above all, for optical applications.   more

    Cooling Process Determines the Quality

    Sheet and film can be cooled on a conventional polishing stack, in a water bath and through use of a calendering belt. Comparison of these three approaches shows that sheet and film produced using the calendering belt technique or the water bath approach exhibit mechanical characteristics that are favourable for thermoforming.   more
