Thank you to everyone who came out for our FRIMO Mexico Grand Opening and TechDay, especially our two guest speakers, Fidel Vaca Reyes from Faurecia and Karl-Heinz Stump from BMW. We had a great time celebrating the opening of our plant with you and look forward to continuing our work together in the future!
With the PURe Mix Compact, FRIMO has designed a new machine layout specifically for installation on a platform. This system will be demonstrated on stage at the “Polyurethanes Solution Expo” (PSE) from June 27 to 29, 2017, when the trade fair will be opening its doors for the first time in Munich with the aim of establishing itself as a new marketplace for innovative solutions in polyurethane processing by leading manufacturers and users. Of course, FRIMO will be there as an exhibitor and has already been involved in the concept phase for the first show.
A high degree of automation and individual tool construction: this is the short description of a completely new polyurethane system for producing foam-filled roller shutter casing profiles at Roma KG in Burgau. With 1,000 employees, the company manfactures roller shutters, Venetian blinds and textile screens at five locations in Germany.
For several years, there has been an increasing trend towards using high quality materials such as leather and artificial leather for making automobile interior parts. Composites with polyurethane foams or cut pieces of spacer fabrics make leather an attractive, soft-touch decorative material. Press lamination processes are the standard technology for processing the high-quality but delicate material. The material and the increasing volumes make heavy demands on the production equipment and process.
Processes and materials suitable for series production to make structural lightweight parts are essential for the success of electric mobility. In this context, hybrid metal fiber composites are coming increasingly into focus to meet the growing requirements for range, driving performance and cost-efficiency.
