Low pressure PU mixing machines
Based in the Northwest of England, the AutoRIM portfolio of low pressure dynamic mixing units are made in the Derbyshire Peak District. We are proud to badge our equipment with the Made in Britain marque. Our range for the polyurethane processor includes metering, mixing, dosing and reaction injection machines for PU and PUR, flexible integral skin and urethane cold cure foam.
Robust and reliable low-pressure metering machines for a broad spectrum of applications in polyurethane processing
In developing the Rim-Mix series machines, we focused attention on the requirements of our customers. The latest generation of Siemens display screen provides an intuitive and user-friendly access to machine parameters, status displays and dispense times. During development we focussed on ergonomic operation and worked to simplify and reduce maintenance downtime.
The AutoRIM Ultramix low pressure mix head technology ensures reactive polymers are homogeneously mixed. The Ultramix permits the introduction of other components for example pigment, fire retardant or catalyst directly through the conveyor plate immediately prior to the mixer barrel ensuring highest quality mixing performance.
Elasto-Mix low pressure cast mixing technology
The AutoRIM Elasto-Mix range of multi-component PUR elastomer dispensing units for higher viscosity materials at elevated temperatures has been designed for maximum reliability and ease of operation. The Elasto-Mix range includes metering, mixing, and dosing machines for cast elastomers, GsPU and epoxy resin systems. The Megamix range of high delivery output units includes the Qube used by processors of filled and unfilled elastomers especially in the offshore oil and gas industries for glass syntactic polyurethanes GSpu.
An elastomer is a polymer with the property of visco-elasticity manufactured from the mixing of a di-isocyanate and long chain polyol at the appropriate temperature, ratio and output. The mixed elastomer casts (fills the mould/aperture) heat dissipates and the chemicals cure to produce a solid polyurethane elastomer of a versatility not easily match. Invented as a replacement for natural rubber, polyurethane elastomers offer considerable advantages in customising and engineering elastomers with benefits of environmental stability, abrasion resistance and ease of processing.
AutoRIM are pleased to work with leading suppliers of pu chemistry to the urethane industry including BASF, Baxenden, Covestro, Dow-Hyperlast, Educhem, Huntsman, IFS Group, Notedome and Rosehill Polymers for elastomer formulated systems.
