Products and services

Easy to install and simple to operate. Material is delivered exactly when needed keeping machines running and avoiding costly downtime. Material wastage is eliminated and the workspace is kept clean and safe.

The demand for an excellent mixing quality and consistently accurate dosing is a must when combining additives with the virgin material at the processing machine.The volumetric dosing and mixing unit MINICOLOR V meets and exceeds these requirements. Mounted between the machine hopper and the feed throat of the machine, it requires very little space.

Dryer for maximum efficiency and minimum operating maintenance. Multiple material bins connected to one dry-air generator provides our customers with maximum flexibility and no interruption to production. Drying can continue while material is changed in any one bin, minimising loss of valuable production time during material changes.

METRO HES 50 - Single-phase hopper loader

METRO HES 50 - Single-phase hopper loader

METRO HES 50 are fitted with an integrated vacuum motor, large filter and easy to operate controller. The conveying times are adjustable. An alarm indicates insufficient material. The units can be mounted onto a machine hopper or material hopper. Automatic filter cleaning by compressed air blasts after every conveying cycle. Suitable for virgin and regrind. With METROMIX connection and sound insulation hood. Equipped with a large stainless steel discharge flap to ensure trouble-free operation.

MDE 40 - Mobile compact dryer

MDE 40 - Mobile compact dryer

The mobile compact dryer MDE 40 generates 40 m³/h of dry air, the ideal amount for the production of small precision parts.The dry air generator can be equipped with one or two fully insulated drying bins to suit the required total throughput. Temperature is set directly at the drying bin, where the process heater is also arranged. This allows for maximum flexibility.
Dew point:-40°C
Drying bin combinations: 1x15l/ 1x30l/ 1x60l/ 2x15l/ 2x30l/ 1x15l & 1x30l
Drying bin material: Stainless steel

MINICOLOR V - Volumetric dosing and mixing unit

MINICOLOR V - Volumetric dosing and mixing unit

Mounted between the machine hopper and the feed throat of the plastics processing machine the MINICOLOR requires very little space. A stainless steel cruciform in the mixing throat divides the main component into two streams of material. They flow together with the additives at the feed inlet producing a homogeneous mixture. Depending on need and requirement, screw or disc dosing units can be installed at the mixing neck.
Number of dosing heads: 1 or 2
Total throughput: 120 kg/h
