Material Handling: Plant Supervisory Computer for Conveying, Loading, Drying, Cooling
Moretto’s Mowis 3 is the latest version of its plantwide surpervisory computer for materials handling and process cooling.
Mowis 3 is the latest version of Moretto’s plant supervisory computer for all phases of materials conveying, loading, drying, blending and storage, as well as process cooling. This server-based, multi-user platform manages from two up to 1100 clients (devices). It is self-configurable and offers integrated wireless connection, as well as Ethernet connection for web-based remote monitoring and assistance. Utilizing the OPC UA communications protocol for Industry4.0, it interfaces with management systems (ERP, SAP, etc.). There is no annual fee.
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.
Accuracy is one of the least understood aspects of blending. The differences between batch and continuous blenders, how blend accuracy is calculated and controlled, which blender type is more accurate, how much accuracy is really required, and how payback is calculated are discussed here.
