The volume flow meters make it possible to visualise the current machine situation, thereby simplifying process control. Altering process parameters for a product change is now faster. The result is a more stable and reliable process plus more flexibility for product changes and a lower reject rate. EcoStar machines have double-walled component tanks equipped with agitators to ensure precise temperature control. The MKE-3B mixing heads with their T-impingement pattern ensure good mixing and laminar, splash-free discharge.Capable of a fast succession of shots and a wide discharge range, the mixing heads are suitable for foam discharge into both closed and open moulds. Another feature of EcoStar machines is the use of KM axial piston pumps. Their long service life and rugged engineering make these low-maintenance pumps.The basic EcoStar version can be optionally upgraded with additional function packs, including closed loop control, transfer mixing heads, different-sized outriggers, and plate heat exchangers. KraussMaffei continues to offer the proven RimStar series for special applications with demanding temperature control and automation requirements.
