Feeding & Blending


These systems are used to meter or dose materials into the primary machine—be it an injection or blow molding press or an extrusion/compounding machine—where they are processed into finished or semi-finished parts. The material being fed and blended can either be in dry or liquid form. Feeders and blenders can be broadly categorized into volumetric or gravimetric, with the latter being more prominent, accurate and sophisticated.
