KraussMaffei's Reaction Process Machinery division is firmly established as a single-vendor supplier of complete production solutions. One key to the success of this policy is the company's ability to apply its experience and know-how to continuously improving individual components of these solutions. The decision to move the manufacture of metering pumps in-house is part of this approach. In future, the EcoStar, RimStar Compact, RimStar Modular, MiniDos series and the company's hybrid machines will all be fitted with KraussMaffei metering pumps. Production will be rolled out initially with pumps rated for 16 - 40 l/min. More pump sizes will be added to the portfolio in the course of the year, says the company.
With their special expertise, KraussMaffei engineers can adapt the pumps to the specific processing requirements of current and future plastic monomers. Furthermore, KraussMaffei-made pumps will have longer service lives - and deliver a better return on investment, says the company.
Maintaining the company's proverbial reputation for quality was the main reason for taking over pump production. The commissioning of a new computer-controlled test rig in the company's plant in Munich-Allach underlines this commitment.
