[image_0][image_1][image_2]According to the Cannon Group, the polyurethane industry in the USA is currently experiencing a moment of intense rise, due to a general return to the domestic production of a large number of products that the American industry outsourced to their foreign subsidiaries in the recent past. A large number of manufacturing plants, dismissed when their users went to produce abroad, need to be replaced with new ones or reinstalled. The demand for new equipment or for refurbishing service is growing. At the trade show, Cannon will be presenting a number of recent innovations concerning all its polyurethane and composites processing technologies. Among them a greater emphasis will be spent in the presentation of the following technologies: High-pressure mixing heads: advanced solutions for general purpose foams up to specialised applications such as filled and reinforced formulations for composites, multi-component and multi-hardness foaming, high-output, cavity filling, clear coating. Six new or completely redesigned mixing heads will be illustrated.The vacuum-based foaming technology, Cannon V.A.I. (Vacuum Assisted Injection), a major achievement in the field of domestic refrigerators, used in combination with the Pascal polyurethane chemical system developed by The Dow Chemical Company. A new kit for the conversion of existing polymerisation presses for discontinuous foaming of sandwich panels will be presented.The range of Cannon solutions dedicated to the automotive and transportation industries, in particular for flexible seats and car interior parts, fully manufactured in the USA. A dedicated machine for the application of clear coating formulations will be illustrated.Equipment for the production of composite parts for the road, railway and construction fields. A Cannon paper, illustrating a number of new mixing heads, will be presented at the two-day technical conference.
