Hennecke GmbH (Sankt Augustin, Germany) is introducing its STREAMLINE high-pressure resin transfer molding (RTM) metering system for polyurethane, epoxy and reactive thermoplastics molding. It features what Hennecke calls an intelligent filling process with closed loop control, as well as a high-pressure metering system with sensor equipment for monitoring the internal mold pressure. The closed loop control system uses the mold sensor to control and manage resin injection. If the mold is not sensor-equipped, STREAMLINE offers control via machine-internal sensors. The system includes one of three new high-pressure mixheads which offer options for internal mold release integration and back-pressure control. Hennecke is also offering tutorials on RTM mold manufacturing, mixhead positioning and other basics of the RTM process.
