Innovative technologies for process-reliable solutions
Rational solutions for sealing processes require innovative thinking. Ever shorter component development and life cycles require rapid, process-reliable solutions which even with short-term modifications are flexibly programmable. Freely applied sealing systems produced in the "FIPFG operation" (formed in place foam gasket) with CNC-controlled mixing and dosing units offer an enormous range of possibilities. They have proved themselves again and again in the automobile supply industry and in electrical engineering and afford considerable development potential for a host of application fields. Two foam systems have ensured enlarged capacities since 2014. The 4-axis moulding units meet maximum requirements so as to protect sensitive components and parts as a result of moulding.
Maximum flexibility from two-component technology
At MICHELFELDER, two-component PUR sealing foam systems are automatically mixed and applied in programmable geometry – as liquid or thixotrope – onto the part in-situ at the sealing seat. It is there that they react. Foamed gaskets are highly flexible, non-detachable and permit dimensionally-precision positioning. Their extremely high reliability under operations and flexibility is impressive. Thanks to the two-component technology, the properties of the required gasket can be exactly matched to the specific intended use. This applies, for instance, to gasket hardness, the required temperature range, and colour selection or viscosity at the application stage.
At MICHELFELDER a great variety of materials can be covered by gaskets: plastics, zinc diecasting, aluminium diecasting, galvanized metal and stainless steel surfaces. State-of-the-art 6-axis robot technology allows highly complex-shaped gaskets to be economically realized in 3D with a maximum of precision.
