Autoclaves for composites
Autoclaves for composites, allow the lamination of different materials to obtain an heterogeneous combination with various advantages and dissimilar physical properties compared to the initials, improving the original limits. Composites have many advantages: corrosion, wear and impact resistance, duration to the fatigue, lightness and the electrical insulation improvement. Their use lead to a significant technological progress in many sectors as the aerospace, automotive, rail, naval, construction, wind and sport and leisure. The transformation of these materials is carried out in Maroso autoclaves, which are pressure tanks, that designed in accordance to the customers’ requirements allow to obtain an high-performance product through the modification of the environmental physical properties as pressure, temperature and vacuum inside the autoclave.
Maroso, by the use of process controllers and high-tech equipment, guarantees attention in the cure process, quality and long term repeatability.
The process data management is a system that allows the customer to have a synthetic and graphic management and vision of the machine cycle data, in order to have a correct process monitoring. Through a custom designed package is possible to obtain both the product and batch traceability, connecting the machine to the customer IT infrastructure for the data download in the server.
Controlled management of unexpected situations
During the normal productive process, unexpected situations as blackout or network instability could occur, due to external factors or temporary electrical overloads, causing negative consequences from the productive and the machine equipment point of view.
Over the years, Maroso developed technical solutions aimed to reduce to the minimum this events, for example by keeping a stable power voltage supply, properly tuned and filtered through UPS (uninterruptible power source) to preserve and extend the electronic devices life.
Allowing an uninterrupted cure cycle management even in case of temporary electricity lack, the process “freeze”, restoring at the electricity supply. The “freeze” phase allows the customer to preserve the treated material and to conclude its cure completely.
Autoclaves for Laminating Glass
Glass sector uses autoclaves for the laminating production of flat, curved and special glasses, both tempered and hardened.
The laminating process allows obtaining a composite glass, composed by 2 or more sheets of glass, by inserting a plastic or ionoplast interlayed material. Thanks to the control of the pressurization, heating and depressurization phases we are able to obtain a good quality laminating process. In case of blackout, the machine adopts technical solutions authorizing the cycle interruption and its later restoration, keeping the pressure and preserving the part integrity which is inside the autoclave.
Autoclave perfectly designed and integrated in the productive process.
Autoclave is designed in accordance to the customer’s requirements and is perfectly integrated in the laminating glass productive process.

Autoclaves for Food Industry
Maroso designs autoclaves conceived for food pasteurization and sterilization, allowing a better food conservation.
Through the pasteurization inside the autoclave at a temperature that goes from 60°C to 85°C for some minutes, we eliminate the organic liquids microflora, keeping both the physiochemical properties and the taste unchanged. This process, followed by a quick product cooling, aims to avoid that high temperatures excessively damage the product organoleptic and nutritional properties. Through the steam sterilization inside the autoclave we obtain an efficient microbicide action given by the heat at a predetermined temperature. The purpose is to correctly sterilize, preserve and guarantee the product health.
