 Although there is scant representation of polyure thane materials and equipment at NPE 2003, you will find some new and upgraded equipment at the show.

 

High-pressure machines

Recently introduced high-pressure RIM machines will be featured by both Hi-Tech Engineering and Krauss-Maffei Corp. Hi-Tech will showcase EcoRIM, which has been developed as an affordable alternative to low-pressure machines. K-M’s new generation of the Rim-Star Eco II high-pressure machine for open pouring is notable both for its reduced price and because the entire system, including day tanks, sits on a single skid that can be carried by a forklift. K-M will also show its new SC version of the Rim-Star Eco II—a more advanced closed-loop machine.

 

Form-in-place gasketing

For those with a taste for automation, a new form-in-place gasketing work cell with a low-pressure foam dispensing system is being showcased by Liquid Control Decker. This compact (20 x 20 in.) Excell 500 system can be configured for flow rates from as little as 1g/sec up to 50g/sec. It incorporates precision gear pumps and a servo-driven disposable dynamic mixer with patented snuff-back. Servo drive provides position repeatability of ±0.001 in. The system has continuous material recirculation, nucleation, and Windows-based controls with a touchscreen.

 

Mixheads on display

New and upgraded mixing heads will be on hand at the exhibits of both MHR, Inc. and Gusmer. MHR is introducing the MHR-DT “Dual Tilt” L-style high-pressure mixheads in a wide variety of sizes, including duplex sizes. They are said to be very competitively priced. Gusmer will showcase its broad line of upgraded mixheads.
