Two new tandem piston metering machines are specially engineered to handle abrasive fillers used in PUR automotive components. Both machines come from KraussMaffei Corp.’s Reaction Process Machinery Div., Florence, Ky. The smaller unit, called the Twin Comet, uses two pistons per component to meter a continuous flow of material with extreme precision, even at very low rates (under 1 cc/sec). This unit is suited to sealing beads, adhesives, and casting. The larger machine, Tandem Hybrid, meters the abrasive component by a twin-piston unit, while the non-abrasive component is pump-metered. This unit is best suited to applications with higher pour rates, such filled LFI (Long Fiber Injection) composites or spraying highly-filled systems for soundproofing components on vehicles. Servo-motor drive is said to result in easier start-up and more precise piston movements for more uniform metering. (859) 283-0200 • www.kraussmaffeicorp.com
