Robotic Extrusion for Complex Profiles using a Thermoplastic Vulcanizate 970665

An innovative robotic extrusion technology has been developed by Advanced Elastomer Systems NV/SA (AES) and Gepoc Verfahrenstechnik GmbH in Germany. This technology has proven ideal for producing a soft sealing member on a rigid substrate with a thermoplastic vulcanizate as the soft sealing member.
This new robotic extrusion technology will open up a wide range of engineered applications for bonding a soft sealing member to a hard substrate in automotive, construction, appliance and other markets. Potential automotive applications include cowl seals, lighting lens gaskets, and belly pan seals.
