MC12 and 18 Micro: the smallest dosing system for small injection molding machines

image17

MCMicro is an ultra-compact dosing unit, especially developed for  small injection molding machines. Its small size and the accurate  stepper motor drive enables you to dose additives in-line on the  smallest machines on the market. 

You can use the MCMicro for normal granulates and micro granulates.  It is equipped with a quick release coupling, allowing easy color  change. For different small injection molding machines we have  adapters available.

The MCMicro comes with a MC12 controller.  The masterbatch hopper has a volume of 200 ml. The unit can also be  supplied with an optional integrated hopper loader for the main  material and MC18 controller. The main material hopper can contain 1.8 liter. 

Reliable additive dosing on the smallest machines, the MCMicro is designed to do just that.

  • Dosing time 0.1 – 999.9 sec. with increments of 0.1 sec
  • Capacity ranges 0.01 – 1.0 gr/s

 

Features MC18-Micro

As the MC12 but with:

  • Auto Synchronization to extruder speed
  • Integrated with main material hopper loader control
  • Alarm output
  • Optional with hopper loader


Benefits MCMicro

  • Accurate dosing of 0.01 – 1.0 gr/s
  • Ultra small but robust design
  • Color changes are quick and easy
  • Easy to operate and easy to clean
  • Allows to dose the smallest parts without color variation

MCNexus: Optometric high precision micro dosing system

image18

The MCNexus is only about 200 mm long, so it will fit on any small scale  machine. It is suitable for high precision injection molding, including  medical, automotive, and electronics, as well as low-rate extrusion.  Ultra-concentrated colors and additives now become easy to dose. 

The working principle is simple. A standard compressed air supply creates  vacuum via an air cartridge. A dosing disc captures the  individual pellets piece by piece. Optional feature on the MCNexus is a  mini hopper loader or a mounting bracket for air components (Air on  Deck). Finally, the pellet is discharged with the same compressed air.  Result: counting pellets with 100% accuracy. To reduce the number of  components the MCNexus is manufactured by 3D printing. This gives  the opportunity to customize the connection to the production machine. 

 

Features MCNexus

  • Best in dosing at extremely low dosage rates
  • Highly advanced optical pellet detection system
  • Completely 3D printed body
  • Recipes storage function
  • 8” full color touch screen
  • Industry 4.0 ready

Benefits MCNexus

  • Extremely accurate dosing
    The dosing disc doses the additive pellet by pellet according to the  calculated production capacity, making it possible to dose at ultralow  ranges up to 5 pellets per second.
  • User-friendly
    Anyone can operate the MCNexus by means of the Movacolor touch screen controller (MCTC). This controller enables the user to work with recipes and monitor the dosage with MCSmart software.
  • Easy mounting
    The MCNexus is designed in a way that makes it easy to install the unit  on all Movacolor neckpieces, by means of a special platform. This  platform enables you to easily drain the machine as well.

Volumetric Dosing and Feeding Machines

MC12: entrance model volumetric dosing MC18: inline dosage system for injection and extrusion

image19

The MC12 is together with the MC18 and MC30

is our showpiece in volumetric dosing. These dosing units have proved their  value since Movacolor started. The units are installed in factories all  over the world and can  operate under almost any conditions. 

Depending on the material, the unit can be tailor-made for dosing  free-flowing powders, regrinds or normal granulates. The units  add additive on the basis of volume. The MC12 unit is controlled by rpm  setting.

The Movacolor dosing cylinder® in combination with the stepper motor ensures maximum control with no stoppages or pulsations. 

The MC12 Economy volumetric in-line dosing unit is the entrance model  of all Movacolor dosing systems for injection molding or extrusion.

The economically priced dosage system fits perfect for coloring PET,  caps and closures, toys, household, automotive, packaging, medical,  profiles, pipes, cables, sheets, film and other applications in the  plastics processing industry.

 

Features MC12

  • Accurate dosing through dosing cylinder
  • Stepper motor speed starting from 0.1 up to 200 rpm
  • Manual adjustment
  • Capacity 0.07-72 kg/h measured with normal granular masterbatch 0.8 kg/dm3

 

Features MC18 Synchronic

  • Capacity 0.07-180 kg/h measured with normal granular masterbatch 0.8 kg/dm3
  • Manual adjustment of metering speed and time. The unit also works in relay mode for extrusion applications.
  • It has a 4-piece 7 segments LED display, keypad operated and keypad lock function
  • Automatic synchronization to extruder speed, an integrated hopper loader control and an alarm output. 



Benefits MC12 Economy & MC18 Syncronic

  • Easy to operate
  • Most accurate dosing technique for dosing masterbatch, powder and regrind.
  • Maximum control without stoppages or pulses.
  • Quick and easy change of colorants.
  • Robust and easy to clean.
  • Easy to adjust or to upgrade the dosing unit.

MC30: in-line dosing control for injection molding and extrusion
