The volumetric MINIBLEND V dosing and mixing unit meets and exceeds these requirements. Mounted at the feed throat of the plastics processing machine, the unit requires very little space. Disc dosing is ideal for translucent and opaque parts as well as for dosing very small quantities.
Vertical Additive Dosing The Y shaped mixing neck allows the main additive to fall vertically into the feed throat of the processing machine, eliminating material hangup or bridging. The main material is kept separate from the additive until they meet just above the throat of the processing machine. They then flow together, resulting in a homogeneous mix with no material separation.
Dosing Motor The dosing motor can be removed easily. The motor is brushless and has an integrated motor management which makes it maintenance free.
Synchronous dosing Synchronous dosing provides excellent recipe accuracy and reproducibility which can be traced at any time.
When dosing very small through-puts a single granule of material can have a big impact on accuracy. In order to alleviate this problem, all dosing discs are fitted with a cutter which ensures that the dosing chamber is always uniformly filled.
Multiple Hopper Combinations The MINIBLEND V can be adapted to the needs of your specific application, with three different additive supply hopper volumes, in either glass or electro-polished stainless steel, and the option of either manual or hopper loader filling.
Vertical additive dosing - greater accuracy as no material hang-up or bridging
Synchronous dosing - better quality of end product and save money
Granule cutter - dosing accuracy even for small dosing quantities
Disc dosing - very high accuracy - even for small dosing quantities
Dosing motor - greater reliability as maintenance-free
Simple calibration - quick and easy with no material spillage
Quick material changeovers - higher efficiency as more time spent in production
Multiple hopper combinations - better fit to your application
VOLU MC control - cost effective solution for volumetric colouring with masterbatch
VOLUnet MC control - control can be integrated in the motan CONTROLnet through a common operating platform - standard network interface (Ethernet)
