Uth: Fine mesh straining of rubber and silicone compounds for highest requirements
Uth Hall 15 Stand D41
Uth GmbH from Fulda, Germany, will be presenting its extended product range at K 2019. In addition to the proven roll-ex gear pump technology and roll-ex fine mesh straining solutions, this includes current developments such as the TRP (Two-roll Plasticiser) for rework processing, polymer dosing system and roll-ex MDSE technology for silicone compounding.
Uth’s main focus is the presentation of a highly cost-effective solution for the fine mesh straining of final rubber and silicone compounds. The roll-ex extrusion system has become a benchmark for fine mesh straining of rubber compounds worldwide: the proven roll-ex gear pump technology permits the particularly gentle extrusion of rubber and silicone and an easy, quick compound change. The company’s solutions are used in different areas of rubber manufacturing, for example in complete offline straining cells (consisting of strainer, strip cooler and stacking and packing device) or in the mixing line for final compounds. In the process, the modular roll-ex system can be combined with a two-roll feeder (TRF), a screw feeder (SF) or a conical twin screw feeder (DSE).
Apart from fine mesh straining, precise extrusion is another primary application of roll-ex gear extruders and gear pumps for which high working pressures of up to 800 bar can be applied. Uth said it can offer, among other things, system solutions (including the supply of complete lines) for the manufacture of rubber-coated wire, yarn or fibre components. Depending on the particular application and requirements, the company can provide these machines in different customer-specific designs. The range of intelligent upstream and downstream equipment, which enables seamless integration in mixing lines of all sizes, is just as much a part of the scope of supply as the comprehensive after sales service.
