Injection Units

The Maplan FIFO rubber injection unit has been proven for many years and is still the unsurpassed component of Maplan rubber injection moulding machines. Decisive advantages lie in the brilliant simplicity of their structure, and the performance and accuracy of the system. The Maplan FIFO rubber injection unit allows an injection pressure of up to 2,500 bar on the tool with the aid of an extremely short nozzle and minimal pressure drop.

Injection Units

Vertical Rubber injection moulding machines

The MAPLAN vertical machines are qualified to produce all kinds of rubber mould types, especially rubber combination parts like rubber/metal parts. Via using appropriate peripheral equipments, for instance shuttle systems, it is possible to automate the extracting process of the rubber parts.

KRAIBON "The material for the future"

Kraibon "Rubber Improves Composites"

Gummiwerk KRAIBURG always endeavors to open up new business areas and extend the use of elastomers as a high tech material. Thus it has been shown that Gummiwerk KRAIBURG’s elastomer compounds are an outstanding supplement for fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) and they can compensate for the disadvantages of this material class. With this “material of the future” the forces acting on the material are absorbed primarily by the fibers. These fibres can withstand particularly high loads longitudinally, although they are relatively intolerant to lateral strains, such as impact from a stone. Another characteristic of fiber reinforced plastics is the relatively high component stiffness, which in turn results in low damping behavior and poor acoustic properties as compared to conventional materials. This is precisely where the elastomer compounds from Gummiwerk KRAIBURG come in: KRAIBON® is a thin film made of non-cross-linked rubber that hardens within the component laminate in the same production process. A hybrid material occurs that combines the best of both worlds. By integrating KRAIBON® in the composition of FRP it is possible to achieve an alternating structure of hard and soft material that combines the good mechanical properties of the FRP with the good “elastic” properties of the elastomer. The main areas of application are improved acoustics and impact and splintering behaviour. The decisive advantages are direct integration of the elastomers in the normal manufacturing process for FRP components and a direct connection between elastomer and FRP without additional bonding agents. This innovative technology is used selectively in industries such as automotive construction, wind power, aeronautics, rail vehicles and medical technology.
