Microcell Technology - saves raw material costs and protects the environment
In plastics processing, materials account for 80% of the CO2 footprint and this is exactly where the company comes in. Promix Microcell Technology creates a microcellular foam structure in the polymer by adding environmentally friendly atmospheric gases (N2 and CO2). This reduces the product weight by 20 - 50 %, which leads to massive savings in raw materials. This not only saves production costs, but also the environment!
Promix Microcell Technology is suitable for packaging films, sheets, foam core and corrugated pipes as well as profiles, cable sheathing, blow molding and blown films. Promix will exhibit relevant key components at the Fakuma and will provide information on possibilities within specific fields of application. In the meantime, more than 300 industrial references are in operation and various machine manufacturers are successfully integrating the technology into their plants.
Promix Microcell Technology can be used for almost all raw materials. For example, for PP, PE, PET, TPE, TPU, PA, hard & soft PVC and bioplastics. The technology is available both for newly planned extrusion lines and as a retrofit solution.
Cost and process optimization in injection molding - Better part quality, reduced masterbatch consumption, lower costs, more profit!
Promix Solutions, the leading supplier of mixing nozzles and static mixers for injection molding, has further optimized its technology. As a result, injection molding processes can be further improved and maximum cost savings achieved. Promix mixing nozzles and static mixers ensure improved melt homogeneity immediately upstream of the molding tool. This means that additives can be better distributed and undesirable color streaks eliminated. Thanks to the improved color distribution, in most cases the masterbatch concentration can also be reduced by 20 - 40 %, which sustainably lowers consumption. The installation of a mixing nozzle not only enlarges the process window but also allows the process parameters to be adjusted. Since a significant part of the mixing task is taken over by the mixing nozzle, the back pressure can be reduced. This protects the gearbox and increases the service life of the screw. Depending on the component, the lower back pressure reduces the melting time and thus also the cycle time, which has a positive effect on productivity. Due to a more homogeneous temperature profile, the melt temperature can usually be reduced by 10 - 20 ° C, which favors a shorter cooling time and thus an energy-saving injection molding process. Promix mixing nozzles can be delivered ready for installation within a few weeks, including heater bands and thermocouples. Conclusion: With a mixing nozzle from Promix, it is easy to save money and reduce the CO2 footprint.
