Conair TrueBlend Blender with SmartBlend Control

If you think all blenders are pretty much the same, it’s time to look a little closer. For any injection molding, extrusion or compounding process, the accuracy and consistency of the blend is critical to maintaining a stable process. The obvious benefit is better end product quality but there can be huge cost advantages as well.  Today's technology in blenders makes using recipes and ensuring the highest accuracy easier than ever.  This webinar will examine the things you need to know about how blenders work from mechanically to the control software and best practices for processing.

Primary Topics:

  • Eliminating blending variability and overdosing expensive additives
  • Achieving the highest ROI through consistency and accuracy
  • Dosing and dispensing systems today
  • Utilizing reports and process control
