    Cannon @ PU Tech India 2014


The Cannon Group will be present at PU TECH 2014, the 4th Polyurethane Exhibition & Conference in India that will be held during 12-14 March 2014 at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida (near New Delhi), India.

The Polyurethane Industry is one of the rapidly growing industries in India: it has registered double digit growth during the past five years and is expected to double every four years in the coming decade. Present in India since many years through the Mumbai-based Expanded Polymer Systems Pvt. Ltd., Cannon have always spent significant efforts and a great attention towards this important market. This edition of PU Tech India will see Cannon presenting a number of recent innovations concerning all their PUR and Composites processing technologies: 

  • High and Low-Pressure Polyurethanes Mixing Heads & Dosing Units: advanced solutions for general purpose foams up to specialised applications such as filled and reinforced formulations, multi-component and multi-hardness foaming, micro-shots, high-outputs, spray, cavity filling, pipe insulation, gasketing and potting. Six new or completely redesigned mixing heads will be illustrated. 
  • The Vacuum-based foaming technology, Cannon V.A.I. (Vacuum Assisted Injection), a major achievement in the field of domestic refrigerators, used in combination with the PASCAL™ PUR chemical system developed by Dow Europe. It is worth mentioning that the first three complete plants using this new technology are currently in operation in Asia: they belong to the major Chinese manufacturers of domestic refrigerators. 
  • Complete plants for the production of flexible and rigid Slabstock foams, including modern high-pressure mixing solutions, with metering equipment for alternative blowing agents. 
  • Technologies for the thermal insulation of residential, commercial and industrial buildings: a wide range of proven, reliable, economically and technologically advanced solutions based on discontinuous and continuous methods for the production of insulated boards, sandwich panels, insulated window frames, sectional garage doors, pipes and other insulating elements. 
  • The range of Cannon solutions dedicated to the Automotive and transportation industries, in particular for flexible seats and car interior parts. 
  • Equipment for the production of Composite parts for the road, railway and construction fields.2 of 5 
  • The complete range of products designed for ESTRIM, Cannon high pressure injection technology for fast production of moulded Epoxy composite parts: E-System dosing units, LN 7/3 mixing head, dedicated preformers for glass and Carbon fibre preforms, moulds, large presses and mould carriers, robots and ancillary equipment for the parts handling. This innovative solution successfully replaces the slow RTM process in the production of large structural and decorative elements for the automotive and the transportation industries. 
  • Dedicated solutions for the Eolic industry: the range of Cannon DX machines for low pressure infusion of Epoxy resins, plus several other machines for the power generation industry. 
The two-day PU TECH 2014 Conference will highlight the developments in the Polyurethane Industry, Processing Techniques, Machinery, Raw Material Innovations and user preferences etc. Mr. Marco Volpato, President of the Cannon Group , will be one of the keynote speakers during the opening ceremony: he will highlight the milestones that have characterised the Polyurethane’s processing history since its earliest years. 

An international team of specialists will be present on the Cannon – Expanded Polymer Systems booth (Hall A Stand B07, B08, C05 & C06) to meet visitors and partners during the three days of show.
