Oerlikon Barmag, a leader for spinning systems and equipment for manmade fibres, will be exhibiting at this year’s K 2013 international trade fair for plastics and rubber, that will take place from 16-23 October in Düsseldorf.

The machine and systems builder will be showcasing pump construction and extrusion system innovations.

Benchmark in productivity

New tape production solutions will be the primary focus. The company’s new developments are aiming at significantly increasing profitability for tape manufacturers. With increases of up to 50% vis-à-vis conventional standard systems, Oerlikon Barmag is said to have managed a quantum leap in efficiency.

This increase in efficiency has been made possible by the revolutionised process in the new EvoTape tape system in conjunction with the also newly-developed, automatic WinTape winding system, the company reports.

High-speed extruder pump

Oerlikon Barmag’s pump specialist will be presenting the new high-speed extruder pump, which is said to generate higher throughputs for lower investment.

The higher speeds permit a considerably greater throughput adjustment range with simultaneously lower pulsation, the company reports. The reduced friction surfaces also said to ensure lower melt temperature increases and hence more efficient and energy-saving production.

According to Oerlikon Barmag, the familiar benefits of the extruder pumps already include pronounced volumetric efficiency, particular compressive strength, high impermeability and extreme durability.

Self-sufficient metering unit

Oerlikon Barmag will also be showcasing the GM Control system, self-sufficient metering unit that can be directly controlled, but can also be retrofitted to existing process control units. The core of it, the GM pump, is available for numerous different conveying capacities, allowing operators to choose the most suitable metering unit for the most diverse range of throughput volumes.

The mobile and compact GM Control unit can support various tasks more simply than in the past, the company reports. There include casting PUR moulded parts, laminating composite components, metering additives into a running extrusion process, applying cold adhesives and for flexible deployment in production systems with changing requirements.

The user-friendly touch screen-operated control unit permits the definition of metering volumes. Other required parameters can be defined, while all important process data is displayed on the touchscreen. Communication with other metering or mixing systems is achieved using CAN bus interfaces or network (LAN) connections.
