With high-speed, loose tube production, controlling excess fiber length is always a challenge. Water friction and the high cooling rate of the plastic compound creates problems with waste and post shrinkage, limiting line speed and the quality of the final product. Our compression caterpillar increases your line speed and the final product quality.
By pre-shrinking the loose tube while it is hot, you enable accurate control of excess fiber length. You also minimize shrinkage at high production speeds.
There's a choice to be made when balancing screw performance to processing requirements. A perfect set of screw parameters may translate to energy savings Read more
The move from Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles towards ones driven by alternative energy sources is in full swing. Nations have targeted a complete phase out in 2050 with an end for all new cars in 2035 (i.e. the Declaration of Glasgow). Several countries have undertaken more aggressive measures to accelerate the transition, notably Norway and Singapore. Hybrid, battery and fuel cell Electric Vehicle (EV) production is gearing up in factories around the world. The arrival of the new technology is sending waves of change along the entire supply chain.
