Machines: Producing cast polyurethane parts at scale

Copied to clipboard

Given the growing requirements placed on cast polyurethane parts, industrialized manufacturing processes are essential to ensure consistently high-quality production. Low-pressure processing equipment is crucial to this task. Our Baulé® machines reliably prepare, meter and mix materials, and are designed for accuracy, flexibility and user-friendliness.

In-depth molding experience combined with our knowledge of polyurethane chemistry and our in-house engineering make Baulé® machines the most efficient tools for the successful production of cast polyurethane parts. In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of machines and peripherals that enable the manufacture of cast polyurethane parts at scale. Our wide variety of options means that molders can find the right equipment for specific processes including open mold casting, bottom filling, rotational casting, casting under vacuum, air nucleation direct injection, and more.

Key elements of Baulé® machines:
• Powerful electric heating for hot-cast polyurethane processing
• Accurate metering for consistent mixing ratios
• Dynamic or static mixing system for enhanced mixing
• Effective material degassing for bubble-free moldings

For optimal processing, all Baulé® machines combine key elements with specific features such as:
• Process parameter control for process reliability
• Raw material recirculation for temperature uniformity
• User-friendliness for easy machine handling

A variety of peripherals are available to increase machine productivity. Depending on the machine series, operators can implement:
• Pigment, catalyst or additive injection
• Automatic degassers
• Amine melting
• Feeding units

Covestro Elastomers devised a new concept that allows our customers to specify which options they currently want on their machines – and keep revising those features and functions as their needs evolve. Thanks to the fully customizable and scalable design, customers can alter and refine the profile of a previously owned machine, or create just the right tool to match their needs. Based on that concept, we developed two broad machine profiles: Baulé® alpha machines let customers specify their design based on a wide range of pre-defined options. Baulé® omega machines permit a fully customized machine design.

Dedicated services

Providing our customers with the best and closest service possible inspired us to create three dedicated services that can stand alone or work together as a total package:
• Baulé® Easy Assist: Allows efficient and remote troubleshooting of your process by our experts
• Baulé® Easy Parts: Lets you identify and order your spare parts online
• Baulé® Easy Data: Gives you access to all relevant processing data on your production line

Designed around our Baulé® machines, the purpose of all Baulé® Easy Services is to ensure that our customers’ production lines remain perfectly functional and that every potential delay factor is resolved easily and effectively.In-depth molding experience combined with our knowledge of polyurethane chemistry and our in-house engineering make Baulé® machines the most efficient tools for the successful production of cast polyurethane parts.

Easy Parts: Select, click & order

Baulé® Easy Parts was created as an intuitive solution for the quick and easy replacement of spare parts – for minimal interruptions to production schedules. The online platform lets our customers order spare parts the moment they realize a need. And, by linking in customer databases containing technical drawings, catalogues and machine documentation, Baulé® Easy Parts makes it easy to identify and order the required parts in real time. Thanks to accurate references and regular pricing updates, this service cuts down on quotations, speeds up the order process and reduces margin for error.

Easy Data: Turn dormant data into manufacturing intelligence

Baulé® Easy Data is a service which allows our customers to closely monitor their machine’s activity so they can fully grasp and monitor what is happening on their production line. The data can be easily and instantly translated into a graphical format which provides a clear overview of the current state of the machine, as well as the evolution of its performance. Thanks to a flexible human-machine interface, graphs and casting reports can be compiled and extracted from the machine history and monitored on your computer.
