Cutting Edge – Clean Vapor Technology for Surfacing
The VaporFuse Surfacing (VFS) process provides sealed and washable parts with injection molded like surfaces. The process chamber is flooded with vapor and the solvent is then removed from the part by vacuum drying, the surface solidifies into its new, smooth form. The solvent is circulated continuously in a closed loop and automatically recovered by the system, maintaining a contact-free process. Operation of the machine does not require protective clothing against chemical hazards
- The Powerfuse S is industry 4.0 ready.
- VFS works for all common plastics and flexible polymers such as TPU, for which mechanical techniques are not suitable.
- VFS parts can be used in an environment under clean conditions without problems.
- The water-repellent surface is also easier to clean, which is advantageous for applications in contact with food.
