REIS - Sealing Solutions
Freely designable, in one process step, ecological and resources-saving

System Structure
  • The robot system comprises a Reis articulated arm robot, a dedicated extruder, a heated and pressure robust hose, recirculation components like mill, cyclone, new and regranulate container, dryer and vacuum feed unit. While utilizing the constant speed path planning ability of the Reis robot system the robot will guide the extrusion die along the substrate carrier. 200°C hot Santoprene™ TPV will be formed within 3 mm in the extrusion die to the required profile.
  • The robot based extrusion of sealing profiles is performed on suited substrates like PP without any pretreatment guaranteeing excellent adhesion.
  • The process allows the extrusion of the sealing profile onto a flat or into a profiled surface of a suitable substrate carrier as well as bordering the edges.

Advantages of TPV Robotic Extrusion
  • Significant reduction of labor cost in comparison to alternative TSR (EPDM) profile system assembling using adhesives or mechanical fixation systems
  • No curing step needed, the part can be handled almost directly after processing
  • High freedom in design of profile geometry (accurate with thin walls possible)
  • Profile extrusion in solid or multi-cavity configuration can be extruded in X-Y-Z direction with Santoprene™ TPV to a variety of substrates
  • No waste of Santoprene™ TPV
  • Excellent dimension stability, compression set and surface quality
  • Recyclable as one product family – PP substrate and TPV profile
  • Tailored product line: Santoprene™ TPV E500 series
