  • Hydraulically actuated needle shut-off nozzle. Open nozzle is optional.
  • Non-return valve with reduced stroke (optional).
  • Material feed via separate mix-metering pump connected to the injection cylinder.
  • Mold temperature control via control circuits in the machine (electrical heating elements are part of the mold).

Details for the processing of one-component silicone using stuffer unit you can find in our brochure "Elastomer processing".
