Gravimetric Dosing and Feeding Machines

MCBalance: Gravimetric High Precision Dosing

image21

The MCBalance* is the highest standard in gravimetric dosing. It  proves its value on a daily basis in all branches, under all  circumstances in injection molding, blow molding and extrusion. 

The dosing cylinder and patented weighing technology ensure extremely  accurate dosing, even when low dosage rates are required. In this way,  high savings on expensive additives can be achieved. 

The continuous loss-in-weight measuring feature and automatic motor  speed adjustment are key to a stable production process. This guarantees  high quality end products and fewer rejects.

* also for clean room and high temperature applications

  

Features MCBalance

  • Capable of dosing at extremely low dosage rates
  • Continuous loss-in-weight measuring
  • Automatic material calibration
  • Integrated hopper loader control
  • Recipes storage function
  • Industry 4.0 ready
  • 8” full color touch scree

MCTwin: the optimum way to handle regrind

image22

 The MCTwin uses Movacolor’s gravimetric dosing technology. This means  continuous loss-in-weight measurement and automatic adjustment.  The functionality of dosing regrind in combination with the additive  makes the MCTwin a sustainable solution for your production process. 

One dosing unit of the MCTwin functions as the master unit and doses  regrind, while the second operates in conjunction with the master unit  and doses the additive. In practice this means that the more regrind is  available, the less colorant is added. This enables you to avoid  over consumption of additives and to reuse the maximum of regrind. The  process is fully automatic, so you always dose the maximum percentage of  available regrind. The quality remains constant, production run  after production run, 24/7. 

 

Benefits MCTwin

  • Easy to install
  • Full flexibility
  • Small footprint

Hybrid blending and dosing

MCHybrid 30: the best of dosing and blending in one system

image23

By using these two blending and dosing technologies in one machine,  you are able to control the main materials in any given ratio and at the  same time dose additives at low percentages with unequaled accuracy.


The MCHybrid 30* is a unique dosing concept that combines two technologies into one system: batch blending and in-line dosing.

The main materials or regrinds are mixed in an extreme compact  gravimetric batch blender. Because the system only blends the main  materials, the blending speed is high and therefore the batch blender  remains small.


The additives are dosed gravimetrically in-line, directly on the throat of the injection molding machine or extruder.

By using these two blending and dosing technologies in one machine,  you are able to control the main materials in any given ratio and at the  same time dose additives at low percentages with unequalled accuracy.

 

* patent pending


If requested, the blender itself can also be used without the in-line  blending units. In that case the capacity and the accuracy will reduce  compared to the MCHybrid concept.


The MCHybrid 30 is also available in a specially developped regrind  version: the MCHybrid 30R-series. Interested in this special regrind  version of the MCHybrid 30? Inform with our dosing specialists.

  

Features MCHybrid 30

  • Fully gravimetric
  • 8” full color touch screen with user-friendly interface
  • Able to store up to 1,000 recipes
  • Capacity max. 350 kg/h
  • Removable and spill-free hoppers
  • 2-4 main components and max. 14 in-line additives
  • Extremely compact
  • Able to handle powders and liquids in one system
  • Quick and easy change of additives
  • 100% control of all your materials
  • Industry 4.0 ready

Benefits MCHybrid 30

  • Compact design
    Because only the main components are blended gravimetrically, a high  capacity can be achieved with a relatively small batch blender.
  • Different materials handled
    The in-line dosing of the additives allows easy color change plus the  option to use additives that cannot be handled with a regular batch  blender, such as powders or liquids.
  • Extremely accurate
    As the additives are dosed in-line, no segregation can take place which prevents color variations.
