Polyurethane Mixing Technology
The "heart" of Polyurethane technology lies in the mixing head, where various chemicals are blended before being deposited in the mould or on a conveyor.
Cannon have produced more than 25 thousand mixing heads for a wide range of formulations and final applications. Their "L-shaped" self-cleaning patented model – the Cannon FPL – provides high-efficiency mixing and splash-free pouring, for optimum use in open-mould.
Polyurethane Metering machines (high and low-pressure technologies)
Cannon Afros high and low-pressure metering machines are built to ensure the highest performances.
Easy to program, to be operated and maintained, Cannon machines are available in High-pressure version - either pump- or piston-driven or Low-pressure, now being used by two generations of transformers.
Mouldcarriers, Mouldcarrying Systems, Complete Moulding Plants
A very wide range of equipment is available for the moulding process: mouldcarriers, turntables and carousels to hold them, ancillary dosing units for additives, blowing agents, fillers and colors, storage plants, premixing stations, finishing equipment. Dedicated Group Units produce special plants for filling insulation foam in refrigerator cabinets and doors (Cannon Ergos - Crios Division), and for every possible application of Polyurethanes in the automotive field (Cannon Ergos - Tecnos Division). Sandwich panels filled with rigid insulation foam are manufactured with dedicated foam laminators and are used for walls and roofs of thermally insulated buildings, for cold-storage rooms, and insulated containers for transport of perishable goods.
Continuous Foaming Plants
Cannon Viking has been manufacturing dedicated plants for continuous production of flexible Polyurethanes for over fifty years. Slabstock foams, mainly destined to furniture, bedding and packaging applications, can be produced with conventional plants, Maxfoam, Vertifoam and the CarDio™ technology - natural Carbon Dioxide-blown foams are now manufactured without Ozone-depleting CFCs, with further advantages in foam quality and cost.
Industrial Thermoforming Equipment
visit www.cannonforma.com for more info!
The thermoforming machines produced by Cannon Ergos cover the complete range of requirements for industrial thermoforming, i.e. those applications involving production of medium to large parts starting from single sheets or rolls of thermoplastic material.
Refrigerator liners, automotive interior and exterior trim, aerospace, furniture, electronic housings, luggage, advertising signs, office machines, sanitary products such as bath tubs, and technical parts are typically the products most commonly produced with these machines. Sophisticated electronic controls ensure quick machine set up, fast and precise control of the heating elements and easy re-programming of production parameters. Careful design of the machine structure guarantees high productivity and repeatable quality. With the addition of pressure forming and twin sheet forming technology, it is possible to produce thermoformed parts which compete in terms of appearance and structure with components traditionally manufactured on large scale production with injection or blow moulding equipment.
Moulds for Plastics and Foams
Cannon engineering resources enable the Group to offer packages including moulds. Complete plants for the white appliances and automotive applications including foaming and thermoforming moulds can be supplied by a unique producer, simplifying the customer’s project management and guaranteeing results. Offering moulds together with more "traditional" products means that the Cannon Group can be responsible for the whole plant, enhancing the quality of products.
