Physically foamed recyclate based on PP is used for the production of industrial two-component handles for ALLROUNDER safety doors.
Because the gas-charged melt has low viscosity, the injection pressure and energy requirement are reduced when injection moulding foamed components.
LLightweight core – high-quality feel: the physically foamed handle is around 10% lighter than compact injection moulding.
ARBURG solutions used
ALLROUNDER 630 A
The handles are produced on a turnkey system based around an electric multi-component ALLROUNDER 630 A with a clamping force of 2,500 kN. The two halves of the handle including the insert are assembled directly in the 1+1+1-cavity mould.
MULTILIFT V 30
With a load capacity of 30 kg, the vertically engaging MULTLIFT V 30 is designed for the efficient automation of large ALLROUNDERs. For applications with a vertical injection unit, the robotic system is mounted in a rotated position above the moving mounting platen.
A physically foamed lightweight moulded part overmoulded with soft material is produced in a cycle time of around 62 s. The 2-component, soft-touch handle weighs 93 g.
GESTICA control system
For the automated production of the injection moulded product, the linear MULTILIFT robotic system and mould are integrated into the GESTICA control system. This ensures greater convenience, functionality and efficiency.
You can use our modular ALLROUNDERs in a variety of ways. Including for products related to construction and mechanical engineering. The spectrum ranges from plumbing, fittings, pipes and dowels to grippers, housings and plug connections.
