Rubicon: Specialist for extrusion lines presents compounding extruder
Rubicon Hall 16 Stand F59
Rubicon Gummitechnik und Maschinenbau GmbH presents numerous interesting news around its product portfolio of machines and lines for rubber, silicone and TPE processing. The highlight at the stand is the compounding extruder for the continuous production of silicone compounds.
The focus of the silicone compounder is the mixing of crosslinking agents and pigments into the silicone base material. With the new development, a strip is continuously produced which, in conjunction with the corresponding downstream technology, serves as a feeding strip for extruders or injection moulding machines.
Also new in the product range and on the exhibition stand is the cross extrusion head type Q 35/90 VH-S ZE with electromechanical wall thickness centring. In combination with a separate X-ray measuring instrument, the radial adjustment takes place via two servo precision gear drives. With the complete system, including PLC for communication and data transfer between X-ray device and extruder, the hose wall thickness and eccentricity are automatically adjusted online. The use of the cross extrusion head reduces time consuming manual adjustments, start-up losses and enables the reduction of product tolerances.
Furthermore, a horizontal infrared vulcanisation tunnel will be shown at the stand. As shock as well as vulcanisation tunnel it offers many application possibilities for the contact-free vulcanisation of silicone hoses and profiles. The special thing about this is the modular design. Different vulcanisation channels can be exchanged according to the desired emitter length and capacity. It is also possible to incline the heating tunnel by 45° to compensate the sag of the extrudate.
Along with the presented exhibits rubicon will inform the visitors about a whole number of further interesting new developments. A central topic will be energy-saving and efficient vulcanisation systems. Also further developments in the field of extrusion lines for the production of hoses and profiles will be presented.
In addition to extruders for the production of a great variety of technical rubber products, the company produces complete lines for the production of profiles and hoses with salt bath, microwave, hot-air and infrared vulcanisation. Furthermore, the company offers laboratory extruders and mills as well as machinery for the processing of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE).
