HANOVER, Germany (June 5, 2012)—KraussMaffei Berstorff has installed a rubber profile production line at its technical center in Hanover.
The extrusion line features different vulcanization systems, shock modules, microwave and hot-air channels, the company said. The extruder unit is a Vac GE 90 KSL x 20 D powered by a water-cooled three-phase motor.
The 1.5 kW magnetron units of the microwave channel are continuously adjustable. A circulator integrated into the energy supply transfers the energy that is not absorbed by the product to the connected water load, which results in longer magnetron service life.
With this modular line, sophisticated sealing profiles for the automotive and building industries can be produced in a single working cycle, said Harald Hepke, head of rubber technology at the Hanover-based company.
