Scheugenpflug recently announced that it has launched a new generation of its A310 material preparation and feeding unit. According to the company, the new LiquiPrep system allows for the reliable preparation and feeding of self-leveling adhesives and potting materials with a viscosity of up to 70.000 mPa∙s. Processes such as homogenization, tempering, circulation, and evacuation can be used to influence the processing properties of the medium.
The heart of the system is reportedly an intelligent diaphragm feed pump. State-of the-art sensors individually determine the degree of filling, which ensures a continuously high feeding performance. The diaphragm feed pump also offers increased wear resistance and thus a long service life. In addition, Scheugenpflug reports that users benefit from improved ease of maintenance, as pump maintenance can be carried out by the operator themselves. Process optimization of the system also enables fast evacuation and thus ensures that the material is quickly available in the required quality.
According to the company, minimum quantities starting from 5 liters can be processed in the material tanks of the LiquiPrep LP804, which has a useable volume of 20 and/or 50 liters. In the case of increasing purchase quantities, the material output can also be quickly increased while the preparation quality remains the same. This means that a renewed investment in a larger system is not necessary.
The unit reportedly features new, modern system design, including an ergonomic front with easily accessible maintenance doors to ensure greater ease of use. The optimized arrangement of the relevant system components also allows more efficient handling and easier integration of the LiquiPrep LP804 into existing production environments. The intuitive EViS control unit also reportedly supports facilitated operation in times of increasing digitalization. In addition to fast activation of functions and easy adjustment of process parameters, it also allows for the continuous monitoring of system performance. The collected data can then be evaluated, analyzed, and used for further process optimization.
