The new precisonMixhead

Smaller size, higher performance and outstanding ease of service
KraussMaffei is introducing a new generation of high-pressure mixing heads, called the precisionMixhead, for processing polyurethane at the K trade show. It is designed for energy-efficient PU production and particularly high product quality - thus ensuring greater sustainability in production and for polyurethane products.
The new design of the precisionMixhead combines maximum precision in mixing quality paired with maximum availability for polyurethane production. A particularly customer-friendly service and repair concept based on rapid replacement of wear prone parts saves time and costs during regular maintenance. The compact design and a weight reduction of up to 20% are reflected in simplified handling in production and service.
Small is beautiful - and saves energy
The precisionMixhead features ideal dimensions. Compared to its predecessors, the compact design offers a volume savings of up to 25%. This makes the new mixing head easier to integrate into complex molds. The weight has been reduced also. With a total weight of about 10.5 kg, the new precisionMixhead 8/12 is about one-fifth lighter than its predecessors.
The lower weight also saves energy, as the handling robot has to move less mass. The smaller, lighter mixing head can also be operated more easily during manual operation and maintenance work. This saves time and increases productivity.
The new design pairs maximum precision in mixing quality with maximum availability for the production process.Prof. Jens Liebhold

Excellent part quality
KraussMaffei mixing heads are market leaders thanks to their high mixing quality. By using state-of-the-art calculation methods for flow simulation, an additional performance boost has been given to the precisionMixhead.
As a result, it became possible to increase the process window by up to 30%, especially for materials that are difficult to mix. This reduces the risk in the production process and minimizes the reject rate even for complex requirements. For the user, the result is more good parts, less scrap.
Replacement parts for fast service
Mixing heads require regular maintenance to produce at a consistent performance capacity. To attain maximum availability in this respect, the wear-prone parts in particular are designed for quick replacement.
A global service concept also ensures fast repairs at fair and transparent conditions. Another advantage for customers: Thanks to the high availability, less needs to be invested in backup solutions.
