Ellsworth Adhesives has revealed the latest addition to its equipment range – the SK-350T2 Centrifugal Planetary Mixer with mixing and degassing system. Manufactured in Japan by the Shashin Kagaku Product Company, the SK-350T2 is a Kakuhunter brand product with CE approval. This newly developed centrifugal planetary mixer can degas a wide range of single component materials or simultaneously mix and degas multi component materials, regardless of their viscosity.
By providing users with an automated mixing solution that is efficient and cost effective, the SK-350T2 eliminates the hassles and challenges of manual mixing methods.
The SK-350T2 Planetary Mixer is one of two Kakuhunter products currently available from Ellsworth Adhesives. Back in October 2015, the distributor launched its entry model ‘The SK-300S’ into the European market and it was the positive response to this machine that encouraged Ellsworth Europe’s Managing Director, John Henderson to further extend Ellsworth’s offering of the Kakuhunter range.
John Henderson comments “Since its launch, The SK-300S has proven to be a popular product in the Ellsworth portfolio. Our customers are not only impressed by the results it produces, but also its ease of use and return on investment. Now we can offer a choice between the entry level SK-300S model or the more sophisticated SK-350T2 model for larger scale production.”
Unlike the SK-300S with just one cup, the SK-350T2 has the capacity for two cups, meaning it is possible to run a dual mixing cycle. The enhanced SK-350T2 model includes more advanced features, with 90 more programmable channels than its predecessor, as well as the automatic setting of ‘counter weight’ adjustment to avoid the possibility of human error.
The SK-350T2 is compatible with all adopters in the Kakuhunter range, including the cartridge adopter, which allows the user to dispense the material straight from the cartridge rather than having to use an intermediate (transfer cup). A cold adopter cup is also available, which can be frozen to lower the material’s temperature and reduce the chance of premature curing or exotherm.
