The machine and the process

A small-quantity metering unit specially developed by KraussMaffei injects the liquid multi-component reactive system into the cavity of a CX injection molding machine. During the subsequent compression step, the coating is evenly distributed on the surface of the molding, providing cover layers less than 50 µm thick. The machines of the CX series are suitable for clean rooms, and appropriate clean-room equipment makes sure that the production room remains dust-free, excluding any risk of contamination for the components. Since the coating partially cures in the mold, the component can be easily demolded. After the part is removed, the scratch-resistant coating is completely cured by means of UV radiation.
