Low Pressure Moulding machines

Flexibility and innovation for an individual solution

Our hotmelt machine system

Our aim is to deliver the matching equipment for every project and to constantly expand the scope of applications for the Low Pressure Moulding technology. 

Based on our many years of experience as a manufacturer of hotmelt machines and our ever increasing knowledge based on each demanding requirement placed on us, our modular machine system has been created and is constantly being expanded.

Individual variants for setting up a Low Pressure Moulding machine can be selected and combined according to the respective project and production requirements.

We said goodbye to standard set-ups and defined three hotmelt machine series instead that make everything possible, from high-performance basic options, special adaptations to completely individually designed solutions.“

New innovative concepts can also be built on the existing Low Pressure Moulding system and integrated into the process.

 

 

Get to know our machines in detail - with individual online presentations from the OptiMel Studio

BASEline

The Baseline series combines a compact design and convenient operation and can be used optimally for a large number of projects in Low Pressure Moulding. 

Various mechanical components can be put together as required. 

The adapted melting device with double-acting piston pump and a melting capacity of approx. 1kg / h enables optimal processing of small to medium shot weights and / or quantities. The available clamping force of 9 / 12kN is suitable for moulding surfaces up to approx. 3000mm². 

By using the Siemens S7-1200 control with touch panel, the series offers the same ease of use as the larger series.

FLEXline

The Flexline series offers maximum flexibility thanks to the modular structure of various variants and expanded options for implementing special functions. 

The adaptation or addition of individual mechanical components is just as possible as special programming or integration into a complete production line. 

In addition, various application systems including hot runner systems with different nozzle geometries and arrangements are available. 

The melting units can be optimally matched to the requirements of the respective project with different melting and conveying systems. In the case of different or changing project requirements these can be exchanged at any time using our innovative "plug-and-play" system. 

Extensive peripherals and additional options complete the system.The Flexline can thus be optimally tailored to the requirements of the respective project.

LABline

To get started with the technology, for prototyping new projects and manufacturing small series, the Labline offers a selection of small devices tailored to the requirements of the Low Pressure Moulding technology. The basis for this is the manual moulding gun with a 0.2l tank for filling with the moulding granulates.

In order to achieve process stability and reproducibility even with this manual processing, a time control can be connected. Two different clamping devices are available for convenient handling of sample and pre-series tools.

CUSTOMline

With the Customline, the Low Pressure Moulding equipment can be individually tailored to your project requirements.

Individual components from the other series can be used as well as a complete special design. Special requirements of your production can be taken into account here as well as the integration into production lines.

For installation in special systems, individual system and tool components and the corresponding support can be provided in cooperation with a special machine manufacturer.
