Conductive Graphene Monofilament

3DPRINTING : AGRIPAK presents its Monofilament extrusion line for Conductive Graphene Filaments

By our specifically designed plastic filaments combined with Graphene you can easily 3D print also “electrically conductive components”.

A great choice so to 3D print components that include electronics, with no need to add any circuitry after printing , cause you can print graphene wiring during your own creation 3D printing build-process.

Thanks to its main tech-properties of “high strength” and “superior conductivity”, the graphene filament extrudable by our new line has a wide range of applications :

  • in the everyday interface devices (i.e. : leds, touch sensors, low-voltage circuitry, sensing for proximity, position, acceleration, humidity or fluid levels measurement, etc.)
  • in the electronics (i.e. : digital interfaces, game and music controllers, wearable electronics, etc)
  • in the electromagnetic and radiofrequency shielding (i.e. : hospital equipment, telecommunications, etc.)
  • in high-strength mechanical/functional tooling (i.e. hooks, drilling tool, etc.).

Industria 4.0

INDUSTRIA 4.0

Agripak, nata a fine degli anni Novanta come società di engineering, si è affermata come una tra le aziende leader nella progettazione, produzione e installazione di macchinari di estrusione e termoformatura per la lavorazione della plastica. Negli ultimi quattro anni si è dedicata in modo particolare alle enormi potenzialità offerte dall’ Industry 4.0, sviluppando un sistema di interfaccia PLC / Cloud chiamato BI-Box (Business Intelligence Box). Si tratta di un dispositivo customizzato da Agripak e “cucito su misura” sulle necessità delle aziende clienti.

In questo processo – spiega Massimo Terragni, Technical Director di Agripak – “Telmotor si è distinto come fornitore all’avanguardia, attento alle nostre necessità e richieste, e ci ha permesso di distinguerci, di conseguenza, con i nostri clienti per la professionalità e la rapidità della risposta alle loro esigenze. Per questo motivo, in uno scenario in continua evoluzione come quello dell’Industry 4.0, Agripak ha deciso di avere Telmotor al proprio fianco”.

INDUSTRY 4.0

Born as an engineering company in the late nineties, AGRIPAK has successfully established itself as one of the leader-companies in the design, manufacture and installation of extrusion- and thermoforming-machinery for plastics processing. Over the past four years AGRIPAK has been especially focused on the enormous and well-known potential offered by Industry 4.0: the proud result, an innovative interface-system PLC/Cloud called BI-Box (Business Intelligence Box) now integrated in an AGRIPAK customized device, that can be easily “tailor-made” to any specific client’s companies exigency.

In this development process – says Eng. Massimo Terragni / AGRIPAK Technical Director – “Telmotor has distinguished itself as a pioneer provider, attentive to our needs and requests : therefore giving us the opportunity to differentiate ourselves for the professionalism and rapid response to our customers demands. For this reason, in a continuous evolving scenario like that of Industry 4.0, AGRIPAK has chosen Telmotor.”.

EXTRUSION: Refining processes through ongoing development of technologies

In recent months we have been refining innovative technologies to be applied to our extrusion lines range. A special focus was given to the homogeneous foaming of both compact and hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheet, with the main goal of improving more and more the intrinsic combination of “performance+appearance” of the end-product itself.
Resulting in greater cost-savings in terms of raw material.

It was proved that density reduction in compact-sheet brings to faster cycled time in thermoforming, with many production advantages. Overall when talking about last generation high-speed thermoforming machines as the new form-cut-stack GN800 series (recently born from a successful co-engineered project by AGRIPAK and GN Thermoforming, and first worldwide presented at the last K2016 Show held on Oct’16 in Dusseldorf/Germany).

As for the hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheet, the foaming actually allows to obtain a visible smoother-surface and a higher thermo-insulation. This last property can be further enhanced by a subsequent side-sealing of the hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheet itself : as proved by the tests done on some hollow side-sealed sheets, sealed by our AGRIPAK dedicated downstream machinery.

On this purpose, our downstream machinery range extended, and we are now presenting on market another special dedicated machine for linear & corner-sealing: so to side-seal hollow-profile (Cartonplast) sheets and bubble-guard sheets up to 10mm thickness. Perfect for box-pallet-sleeves with sealed-perimeter manufacturing, with the advantage of several time re-use and no-risk of inner-hollow-section contamination.

Our team of experts, with multi-decade worldwide experience in the plastics, is available for a major focus on any plastics market production request. On demand : customized turn-key project-analysis and targeted machinery offers can be provided. So starting from the resin up-to any smarter plastics end-product wished : containers, sheets, box-pallets, logistic-boxes, fruit/vegetable boxes, fish/meat boxes, re-usable boxes, etc.
