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. Companies have produced more than 25 thousand mixing heads for a wide range of formulations and final applications. High-efficiency mixing and splash-free pouring, for optimum use in open-mould.

Polyurethane Metering machines (high and low-pressure technologies)

Various 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, and for every possible application of Polyurethanes in the automotive field.

Continuous Foaming Plants

Companies have been manufacturing dedicated plants for continuous production of flexible and rigid 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 new CarDio™ technology - Natural Carbon Dioxide-blown foams now manufactured without Ozone-depleting CFCs, with further advantages in foam quality and cost.

Sandwich panels filled with rigid insulation foam are manufactured by companies 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.
