With the first color metering system in the late 1970s, KraussMaffei responded to the fact that polyurethane processors in certain industries of application, such as utility vehicle and aircraft construction, were often confronted with the requirement of producing components in relatively small quantities and numerous different colors. The multi-color technology was continuously developed further over the subsequent years. At their latest Competence Forum, KraussMaffei presented a new transfer mixing head with metered addition of multiple colors. Up to four colors can be metered to the mixing chamber directly and independently from each other. This allows for switching colors between shots in continuous production.
The KraussMaffei Reaction Process Machinery segment (RPM) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. During this time, KraussMaffei has decisively shaped and forwarded the development of polyurethane processing worldwide. For the future, the continuously changing requirements will be a stimulus for the development of new technologies and innovations– entirely in line with the company's motto Technology Pioneers.
