The new 6K MK18/22ULP-6CN-G six-component transfer mixing head from the company reportedly reduces components changeover time. One feature of the new mixing head is the arrangement of hydraulic valves around the mixing chamber. The company says the mixing head is almost twice as fast as any other mixing head it offers due to component flow that is controlled directly at the mixing head and small volumes of fluid that need to be moved during changeover. Operation is said to be precise due to the proven control piston principle and because the cleaning plunger position can be reset from shot to shot.
