Feeding: Controller Equipped with 'Configuration Wizard'
Operators are guided through the configuration process of the software step by step.
Movacolor says it’s made the configuration of feeders easier by adding a unique configuration wizard to the Movacolor Touch Screen Controller software. The wizard guides operators through the configuration process of the software step by step. This is said to eliminate the possibility they will forget to configure loaders, select the right dosing tool, or perform the initial loadcell calibration.
Movacolor controllers are delivered preconfigured, plug-and-play out of the box. With Movacolor’s modular dosing equipment (building blocks) processors can combine the different dosing systems themselves, configuring their own dosing system.
Non-uniform thickness in extruded sheet is a serious problem.
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.
When you look at competing claims for gravimetric batch blenders, the issue is accuracy. Virtually all makers of the equipment claim similar accuracy, but the numbers appear to mean different things to different people. You need to know what counts for you and how to test accuracy with your own resin and regrind.
