Static Mixers for Injection Moulding and Extrusion
Static Mixers further enhance the performance of our extruder and injection screws, and can be used to improve performance when it is not practical to replace the screw.
No colour streaks or flow lines
Some masterbatches and liquid colours are challenging to process. Sometimes even increased masterbatch content does not resolve disturbing colour streaks and flow lines. Mixer solutions allow you to achieve perfect colour appearance and reduced use of masterbatches at the same time. Benefit from our broad experience with most colour and plastic types.
Improved surface appearance
Depending on the mould design, part geometry and the plastic material, brilliant spots or dim surface areas may impact the quality of your moulded parts. You will achieve high quality uniform surface appearance with static mixer solutions.
Better use of regrind material
The better homogenization of the melt enables you to increase the amount of regrind or recycled material without degradation of the final product.
Many technical plastic moulded parts require tight tolerances of less than +/- 100 μm. This can be a challenge especially in multi-cavity moulds. We can offer you mixer solutions that will significantly help you reduce tolerance problems.
Better balancing of cavities in hot runner systems
Even cavity filling and balanced shot weights in multi-cavity moulds are not always easy to achieve. You have the opportunity to decrease tolerances significantly with mixing technology. Ask us for advice.
Increased tensile strength
Technical plastic parts are often specified to withstand high mechanical forces. Invisible flow lines can reduce the maximum allowable pressure of syringes and cartridges. Uneven distribution of fillers can lead to early breaking of structural parts under permanent stress.
Close to maintenance-free processing of liquid silicone rubber
Interested in reducing your cleaning and maintenance effort in LSR processing? The patented Promix LSR block increases maintenance cycles up to quasi-maintenance-free operation. Quality issues resulting from pre-hardened or non-cured LSR are avoided.
