Desma offers Desfeed flexible silicone feeding station

Hebron, KY – Desfeed is Desma’s stand-alone feeding solution to complement injection molding. For applications which require the injection molding of silicone (HTV high temperature vulcanization or HCR heat cured rubber), Desma offers a flexible material feeding solution called Desfeed. Desfeed is a stand-alone device which delivers the raw material to the screw of the elastomer injection machine where it is further processed and injected into an injection mold. Utilizing an electrically driven screw type positive displacement pump and a high pressure feeding hose, Desfeed takes the HCR/HTV raw material (blocks or pigs) and meters it to the opening of the injection unit screw. Desfeed is said to be truly unique in that it is a portable system which can easily be connected and disconnected to or from an injection machine. To use the Desfeed, connect electrical power to the unit, the feeding hose and a signal plug to the injection machine and it is ready for operation. The ease of connection is said to make it possible to easily and quickly move one Desfeed unit between multiple rubber injection molding machines. Desfeed is best suited for HCR/HTV materials with lower viscosity.
