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.

Feeders and blenders can be broadly categorized into volumetric or gravimetric, with the latter being more prominent, accurate and sophisticated.
