DOPAG introduces a new solution for FIPFG - Gasketing
Presentation of a new dynamic mixing head at Fakuma 2018
DynamicLine is a new dosing system introduced this year by DOPAG as a solution to all formed-in-place foam gasket (FIPFG) applications. The automated dosing and mixing unit is not limited to gasketing applications only however, it can be used equally well in any bonding and potting process based on dynamic mixing. Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen marks the first time DOPAG presents this novel product line in Germany. The basis of dynamicLine is a newly developed mixing head. It will be displayed at the manufacturer’s exhibition stand, ready for customers to discover the variety of its possible applications, which will be demonstrated on sample components.
The response from our customers has been steadily positive and the demand very high. „One could not wish for a better start for a product innovation, really“, says Daniel Geier, Chief Technology Officer at DOPAG. „The high customer interest we have seen so far shows us we have assessed the market demand in the field of dynamic mixing technology correctly.“ High volume of enquiries from international market leaders from various sectors, such as the electronics and lighting industries, the automotive industry, control cabinet construction and packaging material manufacturing further confirm Mr Geier’s Statement.
LSR dosing system silcomix: A new mixing unit for shorter set-up times
Customers interested in injection moulding technology will also see a new solution from DOPAG at Fakuma. The manufacturer will present a newly developed mixing unit for its well established LSR dosing system silcomix. With this unit, the processing of LSR material is more efficient than ever. Disassembly and replacement of a mixer or valve for color addition only take a few steps and almost no time. All disposable and stainless steel mixers available on the market can be used with the system easily.
A modular design of the unit gives users even more flexibility, since it allows them to swap individual components for different sized ones. This feature is DOPAG’s answer to the customer’s constantly evolving needs, driven by new production processes that involve materials of increasingly low viscosity, and pot life and total processing time that are becoming shorter and shorter. With silcomix, set-up times can be significantly shortened and system availability increased. In addition, maintenance times and intervals are reduced by up to 75 percent.
