SOMOS® PERFOAMER - the simple, multipurpose solution
SOMOS® PERFOAMER is the system for producing physically foamed plastics parts using the „PLASTINUM® Foam Injection Molding“ method jointly developed with ProTec’s partners Linde and Kunststoff-Institut Lüdenscheid (KIMW).
SOMOS® PERFOAMER is an auxiliary unit for new or existing injection molding machines from any manufacturer. No costly retrofits to the machines are required, just the addition of a shut-off nozzle. A screw position controller and a gas-tight design of the mold are also advisable.
SOMOS® PERFOAMER may be used for physically foaming any polymers which can be impregnated with gaseous CO2.
SOMOS® PERFOAMER maintains uniform quality of the gas-polymer mixture it produces during processing, so enabling series production of consistent quality plastics parts.
Built-in flexibility - if need be a number of injection molding machines can be connected to a single SOMOS® PERFOAMER unit.
If required, our partner KIMW can offer consultancy about the physical foaming process.
