At NPE2015 this month, Bauer Plastics Technology Group (Bauer Compressors), Norfolk, Va., will introduce the Bauer N2IT, which combines a nitrogen generator, high-pressure nitrogen compressor, and nitrogen process control in one portable package. This unit is said to produce, compress, and store enough nitrogen for most gas-injection applications. For precise process control, Bauer offers True Track Ramping, which allows the user to increase or decrease the gas pressure at any rate desired rather than in fixed stages.
“We have been working on this project for many years,” says Rick Goralski, business development manager. “This type of solution will simplify the entire process and level the playing field for small molders.”
