Raking in improved product quality and production efficiency
Optimizing material distribution, faster production
Covestro will showcase its FPR for high-speed applications-an all-inclusive lay-down solution for the higher speed production of metal sandwich panels with lower thicknesses (20 to 50 millimeters) and of insulation boards on high-speed lines. The current production speed of existing FPRs is limited and only suitable for lower line speeds and/or outputs. With the Covestro solution, a production speed of more than 25 meters a minute with an output range of 90 to 120 kilograms a minute for insulation boards on high-speed lines can be achieved. For metal sandwich panels with a thickness between 20 to 50 mm, production speed is more than 11 meters a minute.
The Covestro FPR optimizes material distribution, ensuring uniform liquid material distribution, resulting in improved product quality, better mechanical product performance and a more robust process.
Polyurethane insulation helps reduce energy consumption and consequently, CO2 emissions. FPRs for high-speed insulation board and higher speed metal panel production lines enable a more efficient manufacturing process, improve final product quality, reduce losses and save energy along the entire product lifecycle.
An easy-to-use solution
The new FPRs allow for instant assembly due to their easy-click connector, requiring no further connectors and fittings. The ball-joint in the click-and-connect connector enables 3D seamless adjustability to adapt to individual processing needs. This results in a faster, easier and more accurate adjustment.
Covestro offers a full range of rake types with set widths between 350 and 1,250 millimeters and outputs of 8 to 120 kilograms a minute. This unique solution is adaptable to a majority of existing high-speed insulation board production lines and metal panel lines that run at elevated speeds, with a direct impact on the final product quality and production efficiency.
