Our patented Talking Head is our iconic FPL SR high-pressure mixing head configured to accommodate more than a dozen sensors, allowing the operator to know its status in real time.

With the Talking Head, it is possible to monitor:

  • Pressure and temperature of polyol and isocyanate
  • Pressure and temperature of hydraulic oil
  • Mechanical stress on the self-cleaning piston
  • Time of opening and closing of the mixing head


  • Excellent process repeatability
  • Energy efficiency
  • Longer life cycle
  • Simplified diagnosis
  • Predictive maintenance

Predictive maintenance

The process data collected from the Talking Head are the basis of OptiWise, Cannon’s service for predictive maintenance. Information is sent to the cloud, where an AI algorithm processes and analyzes them to predict what will happen and the remaining useful life of mechanical parts.

This makes it possible to see if a given effort produces the desired motion, if there is a delay caused by friction, and to predict anomalies and problems before they are detected by the machine control system or the operator.

This way, effectively planning maintenance tasks is possible, reducing costs and downtime.
