SAIP Patents New Dry Foaming Technology for Refrigerator / Vending Machine Cabinet Insulation
SUMMARY: SAIP, a Foam Supplies partner and leading global manufacturer of equipment solutions for polyurethane technical applications, recently developed two new technologies benefiting refrigerated display cabinet and vending machine manufacturers.
Como, Italy – Manufacturers of refrigerated display and vending machine cabinets can now use SAIP’s recently patented Up-Technology Foaming Fixture to apply polyurethane foam insulation in different types of cabinet models using the same plug/core equipment.
This multi-model cabinet insulating capacity is now possible because SAIP’s Up-Technology is equipped with an automatic foaming plug change-over. The foaming fixture top platen is fixed, while the fixture bottom platen has an up and down vertical movement by means of a servo-motor. This new technology ultimately translates into considerable energy savings, repeatability of mechanical positioning and low maintenance costs for manufacturers.
Main features of SAIP’s new Up-Technology system include:
- Fixture side walls made of aluminum plate with built-in pipes for conditioning water circulation
- Plugs assembling to the fixture top platen by means of an automatic system
- Plugs heating system through hot air circulation
SAIP Also Develops Face-down Technology Foaming Fixture for Leading Russian Company
SAIP also recently developed Face-Down Foaming Fixture technology for a leading Russian manufacturer of refrigerated display cabinets. This Face-Down technology features a foaming fixture that is equipped with an adjustable foaming plug, and is composed of one fixed top platen, two side walls and two movable carriers – a tunnel type shuttle system. The two movable carriers support the foaming plugs.
