Since the elastic component is injected directly onto the stable thermoplastic body without prior priming, the associated costs can be effectively saved. In this way, applications in accordance with common food and drinking water requirements (FDA, BfR, etc.) can be guaranteed and demanding specifications of the electrical industry can be fulfilled.
In addition, additional functions are integrated into components through material combinations. Bendable or filigree parts made of rubber become dimensionally stable and can thus be mounted in a functionally reliable manner. This leads to a reduction in the scope of assembly as well as additional reworking and lowers quality assurance costs. A central advantage of rubber-plastic compounds is that, unlike metallic materials, they are not prone to corrosion. Moreover, the total weight is reduced enormously by substituting the metals accordingly.
We offer various material combinations of plastics and elastomers in direct bonding. In addition, an application-related material selection enables function- and cost-optimised solutions.
Our modular tube connector system was developed for connecting glass tubes in photobioreactors. The requirements for the rubber-plastic pipe clamp are extensive, because on the one hand the component must resist the existing pressure of the plant and on the other hand it must guarantee a reliable tightness.
The simple assembly and disassembly of the pipe clamp using a torque wrench also eliminates the need for heavy power tools. Furthermore, the tight screw connection of conventional metal clamps often leads to glass breakage, which can be significantly reduced by using the Jäger clamp.
The use of the rubber-plastic pipe clamp in other industries or with pipes made of different materials (glass-plastic or metal-plastic connections) is possible without any problems. They are already used in solar water treatment plants or in the plastics industry for granulate conveying.
Components for the agricultural sector are usually exposed to various environmental influences and strong physical stresses. They must be resistant and should remain serviceable for as long a period as possible. Should individual components fail, this can have serious economic consequences, as the periods during which sowing and harvesting can take place are limited.
Above all, material combinations of rubber and plastic allow reliable and consistent use of the machines, as they provide the necessary robustness despite their low weight and without the risk of corrosion.
Seed drills use pressure rollers to regulate the depth of seed placement and for soil compaction after the sowing process. Previously drawn furrows are closed to prevent the seed from lying open in the field. For this purpose the press rollers must work permanently with appropriate pressure and on different types of subsoils.
The JÄGER Group manufactures assemblies made of high-strength rubber and highly resistant plastic for this purpose in order to withstand the extensive influences such as abrasion and specific force-displacement behaviour. The penetration of dirt into the pressure roller bearing is optimally prevented by a well thought-out construction of lip seals and dust caps.
