Injection Transfer Moulding in Zeiten von Industrie 4.0

Automatisierte Fertigungsprozesse für Gummiformteile

Zu den Vorteilen des ITM-Verfahrens zählen eine vergleichsweise hohe Zahl der Werkzeugnester und kurzer Vulkanisationszeit bei optimaler Prozessführung. Insbesondere mit temperierten Transfertöpfen ist das ITM-Verfahren sehr wirtschaftlich. In Kombination mit einer Vakuumkammer lassen sich Fehlstellen und Brenner vermeiden. Die passende Automatisierungslösung macht das Verfahren rund. more...

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...

LSR Processes Set-up Virtually Testing new concepts

During the processing of liquid silicone rubber (LSR) Sigmasoft Virtual Molding is a vital tool. Because of their particular rheology and cross linking kinetics, LSRs only allow for a narrow processing window and thus present some challenges to the processor. These circumstances have however motivated a number of innovations, to fully exploit the potential of […] more...
