From October 12 to 16, the international RAMPF Group is presenting high-performance foam gaskets and innovative production systems with integrated dispensing technology at the Fakuma trade show at the Friedrichshafen trade fair center – Hall A4, Booth 4123.

Companies operating in the automotive, electrical/electronics, energy technology, filter, medical technology, packaging, and white goods industries will find end-to-end solutions for their production processes at the RAMPF Group booth. In addition to foam gaskets based on polyurethane and silicone, the international Group is also showcasing mixing and dispensing technology with automation systems for sealing, casting, and bonding reactive plastic systems.

Production systems with built-in dispensing systems – RAMPF Production Systems

RAMPF Production Systems is a leading supplier of mixing and dispensing systems for sealing, casting, and bonding a wide range of polymer systems. The company designs systems around the specific applications of its customers, with the precise coordination of material transport and preparation, dispensing, mixing technology, and moving axes ensuring optimum dispensing results.

The dispensing systems are equipped with high-performance mixing technology that requires very little maintenance and processes a variety of materials such as polyurethane, epoxy, and silicone with extreme precision, regardless of fillers and viscosities.

As a market leader in the field of automation, RAMPF Production Systems plans and manufactures customer-specific production systems based on standardized components. This ensures that only tried-and-tested process technology is used for each individual task. The company’s process automation portfolio covers

  • Handling and robotics (KUKA, ABB, FANUC)
  • Component transportation
  • Control technology (Siemens, Beckhoff)
  • Recording all process parameters with MES connection
  • Constructing tools and equipment
  • Material pre-treatment (activation), heat treatment
  • Image processing, sensors, contactless measuring technology

Every system can be equipped with the universal RAMPF HMI. All process information is provided to higher-level systems, meaning the system can be controlled with just one intuitive, user-friendly interface.
