Digitization process in Rubber Industry

In free market economies, the use and the networking of technologies will increasingly expand across all branches of industry and across all departments in a company. Enterprises capitalize on the opportunities of connectivity of modern information and communication technologies in order to automate the communication between human and machine but also between machine and machine. Smart and digitally networked systems are the basis for this. more...

Gear pump technology opens new possibilities

Fine Mesh Straining within the Mixing-Line

Fine mesh straining with gear extruders developed especially for the straining of rubber compound, the roll-ex gear pump strainer from Uth ensures a low temperature increase under high pressure. With throughputs up to 10.000 kg/h the gear pump extruders are a particularly good choice for the operation in mixing-lines for different mixing stages. more...

Automatisierung im Labor

Technology for the smart labs of the future

Moderne Labore gleichen in ihren Strukturen heute oftmals noch einer klassischen Manufaktur. Geräte und Prozesse sind nicht vernetzt, und die kostbare Probe wird meist händisch von den Mitarbeitern prozessiert. Lange Zeit reichte dieser Aufbau aus, um die Innovationskraft der Labore auszuschöpfen. Heutzutage generieren sie jedoch vielfach größere Datenmengen, denen das bekannte Vorbild nicht mehr gewachsen ist. more...

Silica-Hollow-Body

Development of an Extrusion for the Continuous Pre-Cross-Linking of Solid Silicone Rubber

The blow molding of solid silicone rubbers is possible with a defined pre-cross-linking of the material. The pre-cross-linking allows the extrusion of the parison without strong drawdown and the forming with compressed air into a hollow body. The objective of this contribution is the development of an extrusion die for the continuous pre-cross-linking of silicone […] more...

Energieübertragung zur kontinuierlichen Vulkanistation

Analysis of the Efficiency of continuous Vulcanisation Processes

As shown in lab-scale investigations on continuous vulcanisation processes show, that various forms of vulcanisation energy transfer have very different energy demands and deliver material-specific different vulcanisation results and properties. In order to enhance basic knowledge on influential factors on continuous vulcanisation processes, a research is conducted on material-specific ideal vulcanising strategies using a specially […] more...

Influencing the anisotropic material behavour of TPV

Characterization of anisotropic material behavior of injection moulded TPV-products

Thermoplastic vulcanizates show a strong anisotropy in their material properties after injection moulding. For example, mechanical properties like stiffness or strength can differ longitudinally or transversely to the flow direction by a factor of two. In a research project important factors (process, material, geometry) influencing the anisotropic material behaviour of TPV were identified. With the […] more...
