    The Cannon Group will be present at PU CHINA 2013


The Cannon Group will be present at PU CHINA 2013

Their latest technological developments in the field of Polyurethane and Composites processing will bepresented by a domestic team from the various Cannon Far East’s offices present in China, supported by an international group of specialists:

  • 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.
  • The new 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 belong to the two major Chinese manufacturers of domestic refrigerators, Haier and Meiling.
  • The Cannon JL mixing head, whose design significantly innovates the PUR mixing method and brings important operational advantages: a more laminar flow, higher output and no injectors to calibrate and operate. The Cannon JL enhances the foaming performances of several blowing agents currently used in production (hydrocarbons, HFC 245fa, Methyl Formate, Carbon Dioxide, etc.).
  • This mixing head meets the expectations of the world largest manufacturers of domestic refrigerators and already found a place in their most modern production lines.
  • Complete plants for the production of flexible and rigid Slabstock foams, including modern high-pressure mixing solutions, with metering and dispensing 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 and other insulating elements.
  • Solutions for the insulation process of pipes with rigid PU foams: a new, innovative high-pressure mixing and dispensing technique for the production of homogeneous quality foams suitable for both continuous and discontinuous production methods.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • he 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 part’s 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.

  • Cannon Artes Ingegneria and Teheran's gold-rush



    Alessio Liati, sales manager director of Cannon Artes Ingegneria, talks about the commercial importance of Iran for Italian companies on the Italian newspaper LA REPUBBLICA - AFFARI & FINANZA 13/04/15.

  • Vacuum-Assisted Technology: now also for existing plants!


    A new retrofitting kit allows the manufacture of discontinuous insulated panels making use of existing presses and foaming plants.
    Energy-efficient elements of the Cold Chain (refrigerated warehouses, reefer containers, cold rooms, commercial and domestic refrigerators, portable coolers etc.) have proven their effectiveness in reducing the use of energy required to keep our food fresh in its path from “field to table”.

  • CFRP components for BMW Series i3 and i8 produced by Benteler SGL with Cannon equipment
