Blending & Dosing
Maguire MicroBlender™ - The next generation in gravimetric blending
The WSB-MB MicroBlender™, the smallest weigh scale blender in the world, features the latest technology in gravimetric blending. The MicroBlender™ makes the benefits of gravimetric blending accessible and affordable to plastics processors operating small machines. The MicroBlender™ is capable of blending up to 4 components at a rate of 140 lb/hr (63 kg/hr). All material hoppers are removable for fast and convenient material changes. The Maguire Weigh Scale Blender controller is remotely mounted providing easy access for the operator.
Precise Dispensing System - Pneumatic valves operating in conjunction with advanced software deliver actual batch accuracy of (0.1%). The Maguire MicroBlender™ includes the unique Micro-Pulse technology, which virtually eliminates the need for augers to achieve accuracy when dispensing minor ingredients. Micro-Pulse gives you the capability of dispensing as few as 2 or 3 pellets per pulse cycle.
Reduced Weight and Footprint - Totally pneumatic system eliminates motors which reduces the weight of the blender to 50 lb. (22.7 kg). The unit is just under 2 feet high and has a 6 in. x 6 in. footprint.
Removable Material Supply Hoppers - Each of the removable bins contains a pneumatic quick disconnect for fast removal, cleaning, and replacement when changing colors of materials.
Unique Removable Access Door - The weigh pan and mix chamber are easily accessed through a removable door. The mix chamber agitator is permanently attached to the door and uncouples from the drive mechanism when the door is removed. This unique safety feature renders the agitator inoperable when the machine is opened and eliminates the need for electrical interlocks.
Vibration Management - Proprietary technology eliminates false load cell readings caused by machine shock or vibration. This greater accuracy is critical when the blender is mounted on a fast cycling molding machine.
Greater Documentation Capabilities - The MicroBlender™ can be linked with the Maguire materials management software for expanded control and reporting capabilities. Blend certification, process verification and documentation for ISO 9000 initiatives are among the requirements met by this data acquisition software.
Dosing & Mixing Units
Gravicolor - The smart way to dose granulate
Motan's GRAVICOLOR doses and mixes up to six materials precisely and with maximum recipe accuracy. These modular gravimetric units are designed for injection, blow moulding and extrusion and provide throughputs up to 2200 kg/h.
Independent of recipes, materials, or the operational environment, IntelliBlend analyses all process data achieving the best possible operating point at any time through continuous self-optimization. Recipe integrity results in excellent and consistent product quality.
The GRAVICOLOR series is part of the Motan range of products and systems for all stages of management, conditioning and preparation of plastic granules. The design quality, plus the engineering, ensures high performance and reliable operation.
