Oftering, Austria – Elmet, an Austrian operating system supplier for the injection moulding of two-component liquid silicone rubbers (LSR), has introduced a standardised barcode system for drum labelling and recognition.
The system, which is supplied as an integral part of the company’s TOP 5000 P dosing systems, is claimed to be unique in the industry.
LSR is a two-component reactive chemical. The two components, A and B, are usually shipped in separate drum containers that are, however, very similar in appearance. Mix-ups can have serious consequences.
