Kolb’s newly developed, low pressure VRC 601 edrive encapsulating system with direct hotmelt single-screw extruder is equipped with 3 heating zones and opens new perspectives for processing different materials, such as polypropylene, polyurethane, co-polyamide, co-polyester, santoprene, TPE, Elastollan, Hytrel. The compact design of this machine with slide table is an innovation in this market segment. The modular structure enables integration in a production line.
The heat-up time is less than 20 minutes; this represents an energy requirement that is approx. 20% lower compared with conventional methods. The electromotive close fixture of the edrive tool additionally increases energy efficiency.
