‘Improving process efficiency in plastic processing — new valve technology for temperature control units’
In injection moulding, meeting the increasing requirements concerning surface quality and dimensional accuracy poses a real challenge. Processors demand tension-free and non-deforming workpieces that provide excellent moulding accuracy and seamless, perfect surfaces in high polish quality. Over the years, innovative mould technologies and valve designs have enabled manufacturers to opt for efficient variothermal temperature control in serial production, introducing the technology in the automotive and consumer goods industries.

Available with a range of options to suit a number of applications, Bürkert’s pivoted armature solenoid valve is claimed to provide a reliable process control solution.
The correct selection of the valves being used within any process control system is key to ensuring the performance and reliability of that system. Michael Hannig, product manager for solenoid valves at Bürkert Fluid Control Systems, looks at this process with particular focus on the chemical resistance of the various components.
New developments in coffee machines require expert component design for effective fluid management, according to Daniela Krahn of Bürkert Fluid Control Systems. Coffee and other hot-drink vending machines fall into two main categories: bulk hopper storage or individual pod dispensing, and designers are faced with many different challenges in each category.
Bürkert has introduced the Type 7615 micro dosing pump, which has been designed for precise dosing in the micro-litre range.
In this technical article, Bürkert describes how the precise metering and control of gases has become one of the most crucial operations in leading-edge processes across all industry types and applications, including medical equipment, laser and plasma cutters, food processing and packaging, air handling and fuel-cell technology. At the heart of many Bürkert systems are three key components specially developed for gas handling. These are proportional solenoid valves and mass flowmeters.
