Complete customized turnkey systems for the manufacturing of PIR and Phenolic resin-based insulation panels for the building and construction industry

Caronno Pertusella, (Varese), Italy, October 19, 2022

Cannon Ergos is dedicated to manufacturing turnkey plants and machinery for diverse resins systems for composite, and thermoplastic materials. The company has extensive knowledge and experience in the supply of plant technology for large scale, high-speed continuous manufacturing of high-quality polyisocyanurate (PIR) and phenolic resin-based insulation panels with flexible facings mainly for roofing, walls, floors and ceilings applications in the building and construction industry.

Today, Cannon Ergos can provide customers an all-inclusive state-of-the-art integrated post-processing system which guarantees high speed together with efficient flexibility and productivity for insulation panels of any size, with any substrate. Drawing on decades of experience and knowledge, the array of our post-processing machines and equipment are designed and custom-built with the same attention to detail, robustness, and reliability that our customers have come to expect, and provide the optimum, tailored solution for each post-production step which includes sawing, cooling, trimming, profiling, machining, packing, stacking, and storage.

Luciano Boscari, Technical  Manager for Post-Processing Systems

The complete turnkey plant technology Cannon provides to manufacture PIR and Phenolic resin-based insulation panels includes raw materials tank storage, upper and lower unwinding equipment to manage and feed rolls of substrates such as craft paper, aluminum foil, glass or mineral fiber facings, and pre-heating equipment; the metering and mixing of the reactive resin base components which could include catalysts, blowing and curing agents, and fire retardants; and the foaming and lamination section with double-belt conveyors to create panels with the desired flexible substrates and thicknesses. 

Post-processing equipment now supplied by Cannon Ergos include flying cross-cutting saws which divide up the continuous stream of laminated panel into ‘motherboards’ which pass into a cooling and hardening unit using specifically configured conveyors and are subsequently sawn into several pieces of the desired finished dimensions. These are then trimmed longitudinally and transversely with, for example, tongue-and-groove and shiplap profiles. The final panels are handled in a fully automated packaging station to produce shrink wrapped unitized and palletized stacks ready for warehousing and delivery.

Cannon Ergos has paid particular attention to the optimization of every stage of production, including post-processing, applying lean manufacturing principles, automated systems, and optimized cycles to save energy, chemical raw materials, and substrate facings.
