Hennecke: State-of-the-art PU processing technologies

[image_0]Among the novelties will be the new version of the Wintronic plant control. In this system upgrade, the plant manufacturer has eliminated most of the conventional operator controls and, as for the new hardware, relies on a touchscreen operator panel combined with a significantly optimised user interface. Compared to function key operated devices, the complete control logic remains unchanged and the typical benefits such as shot logging and data export to external storage media are still available. The function of the new Wintronic will be demonstrated in a live simulation. Also live on display Friedrichshafen will be a Microline production system for the processing of transparent PU systems. The system is used within the manufacture of an automotive centre console at the Engel stand (hall 5, stand 5204). In this application, a thermoplastic base support is combined with veneer using the injection moulding process. Thanks to the direct connection of the polyurethane processing plant to the mould, finish coating with transparent PU systems takes place in the same production cell (clearmelt technology). The PU protects against chemical and mechanical impact and gives a high-value surface effect. The additional integration of a capacitive film enables piloting a vehicle similar to the handling of a smartphone, offering interior designers new degrees of freedom. Hennecke is Engel's exclusive system partner for polyurethane technology.
