  • MATERIALS HANDLING: Modular Loaders Offer Easy Conversion

    System can also be fitted with modules with a tangential material inlet to provide a cyclone effect for handling materials that require a more coarse dust separation.

  • Resin Conveying: No More ‘Spaghetti Bowl’

    You now have technology choices to avoid the maze of conveying tubes that form a ‘spaghetti bowl’ or ‘rat’s nest’ in a central materials-handling system. Here’s how they stack up.

  • AUXILIARIES: Low-Dose Blender for Small Machines

    Gravimetric blender feeds up to 572 lb/hr in doses down to 3 g per component.

  • AUXILIARIES: Low-Dose Blender for Small Machines

    It meters down to 3 g per component.

  • Auxiliaries at K 2013: More Efficient, Flexible & User-Friendly

    It’s hard to generalize about auxiliary equipment, but a few trends stood out at K, including: greater energy efficiency, ease of maintenance and cleaning, controls that provide more real-time and historical process information and greater ease of use.

  • AUXILIARIES: New & Upgraded Blenders at K 2013

    New gravimetric blenders from Motan-Colortronic, Koch-Technik, and ProTec, plus an upgrade from Wittmann.

  • NPE News Wrap-up: Resin Dryers

    At least 16 companies introduced new dryers at the big show in Chicago. The new models span a range of drying technologies, but most sport features that save space and cost and make the dryers simpler and more reliable.

  • Materials Handling: New Equipment Emphasizes Efficiency & Value

    Visitors to the recent NPE 2009 show in Chicago were looking for materials handling equipment that could do more than dry, blend, or convey resins. It had to do those things while saving energy, providing faster and easier maintenance, speeding product changeovers, reducing labor cost, minimizing waste, and providing better value for money. The new products cited below addressed those needs and more.

  • The compact gravimetric dosing/blending unit for the addition of masterbatch/additive in granular form is suitable for use on injection molding/blow molding machines and extruders; it is insensitive to vibrations and specially designed for mounting directly onto the feed throat of the processing machine ensuing masterbatch savings of up to 50 %. The masterbatch storage bins can be removed together with the associated dosing screw allowing for a very fast color change and easier cleaning.

  • With the METRO HCG Regrind and METRO HCG Flakes hopper loaders, free-flowing regrind materials or very dusty granulates are conveyed automatically to the hopper of a processing machine, drying bin or day bin.

  • Cost effective, reliable and easy to use, LUXOR dryers are available ex-stock with specifications to suit almost all applications.

  • NPE 2009 News Flash

    Injection MoldingHybrid Press Has Electric ClampNew injection presses that combine servo-electric and hydraulic movements to achieve high performance with energy efficiency will be discussed by Arburg Inc., Newington, Conn.

  • When designing Central Vacuum Systems, experience pays off. "During the early eighties, Motan started dealing with this subject in close co-operation with Ford Berlin of Germany", says Mark McKibbin, President of Motan Inc., Plainwell, Michigan.

  • The success story of gravimetric batch blenders in the plastics processing industry began more than 10 years ago.

  • Cost-efficiency is highly valued everywhere.
