A gravimetric color feeder for up to 35 lb/hr is said to offer the accuracy of loss-in-weight feeding for the price of a volumetric model. The new MGF feeder is built by Maguire Products, Inc., Aston, Pa., for Novatec, Inc., Baltimore. It is the fi rst gravimetric feeder from either company. Its hopper and auger tube are mounted atop two load cells. The operator enters the shot size and letdown ratio for injection molding or the throughput rate and letdown ratio for extrusion. Automatic adjustments are made when 20 g of accumulated error are detected. Tel: (410) 789-4811 . www.novatec.com
