Carousels or Turning Tables can be designed either for fully automatic mass production of popular refrigerator models or, more simply, in semi-automatic version for low production series and lower investment.
These plants are based on moving fixtures which can be operated at the service stations with fully automatic devices or manual systems for the different operations of :
- Pouring or injection
The temperature conditioning of the fixtures is usually achieved by an oven with forced air circulation or - in case of rotary tables - it is also possible to use a water circulation system, which is more efficient and less energy hungry.
For the model change, depending on the door design and on the way of foaming, it is possible to either modify the mould configuration to adapt it to the new size of door to be produced, or to replace them. In both cases, the operations is quite quick.
