Saip supplies refrigerator foaming line to customer in Canada
The Italian company Saip, a manufacturer of polyurethane processing plants and machines, recently announced that it has supplied a commercial refrigerator foaming line to a leading refrigerator company in Quebec, Canada. The foaming line for insulating display cabinets and doors was already inaugurated in October 2017.
According to Saip, it used the customer product designs and anticipated annual volumes to design a manufacturing system to meet their demand for improved quality, manufacturing efficiencies and manufacturing versatility. The new line has the capability of producing 15+ different models of cabinets and doors and also offers flexibility for future product designs, said Saip. This versatility was made possible thanks to a motorised mould extraction system providing the ability to perform a product model changeover in a matter of minutes. By incorporating a heated fixture into the system, Saip has realized a shorter cure time and virtually eliminated scrapped parts.
The Saip SPB100 high pressure machine allows the automatic injection of the foam into the cabinets with a sliding carriage. Adjacent to the cabinet machine is the door line with a hydraulic containment press. This press operates independently and has the capability of receiving different model sizes at the same time.
