Coating or gluing of foam material
The processing of foamed material is diverse and omnipresent.
Doesn’t matter if PUR, XPS or EPS, Axel Wirth Maschinen produces machines and plants for the coating of foam material. This includes plants for the production of:
- Insulating boards or cassettes
- Dashboards in the automotive industry
- Padded furniture
- Car seats
- Neck supports
- Vending cart production
- Caravan production
Usually it’s about adhesive application or gluing processes. For this often times the dosing roller machine type DWO is used. Especially in the foam material area, shear force sensitive glues are common. Often times this affects the dashboard-, mattress-, car seat or padded furniture industry. Therefor Axel Wirth Maschinen GmbH developed several solutions together with the glue manufacturers. Besides the application without development of shear force, also the supply of glue is solved on a considerate level. But also in the area of insulation material we had some homework to solve. Applying cold PU glue to glue foam material and aluminum. With an open time of 40 minutes we’re able to process the PU glues with our LW 100 and LW 120. The rubber of the rollers is specially produced, so that the PU glue’s cleaners won’t damage the rubber. Functional coatings are often being used in the area of insulation materials, which are water-based, but has it’s drawbacks with having a fast drying and granularity. Foam material manufacturers from several countries rely on the experience and quality of Axel Wirth Maschinen since many years. Of course you can test your requirements in our technical center and recreate your processes on our laboratory plants.
