Recipes ensure that the same blend is used to create parts that match from one shift to another, one week to another, and one year to another.

The advancements in gravimetric blender controls, like the SmartBlend control for Conair's TrueBlend gravimetric blender, make operator interactions with the equipment simpler than ever. The use of recipes, saved in the control, makes process changeover quick and easy. Recipes also ensure that the same blend is used to create parts that match from one shift to another, one week to another, and one year to another. In this presentation, you'll learn how to best utilize this great feature on today's smart blender controls.
