Movacolor is the first choice of plastics producers worldwide that strive for excellence in both injection molding and extrusion. Movacolor doesn’t simply meet customers’ demands for stable production, high quality, improved efficiency and lower costs and scrap volumes –they exceed them because of our constant stream of innovations in dosing technology.
Movacolor’s leadership in dosing technology is based on over twenty years of partnership with plastics producers. They understand that among the most common problems are color and wall thickness variations. The Movacolor dosing technique is based on the in-line dosing of masterbatch, powder, regrind or liquid colorants into virgin material. They combine the dosing cylinder with a stepper motor to ensure consistent flow resulting in reliable color and wall thickness.
Broad product line of gravimetric and volumetric dosing machines
Movacolor develops and produces gravimetric and volumetric dosing units and continuous in-line blenders for injection molding and extrusion. These systems meet the need for high volume, quality and reliability in the dosing of masterbatch, powder, regrind and liquids for producers of PET preforms toys, household goods, automotive components, packaging, medical devices, profiles, pipes, cables, sheets, film and many other products.
Constant dosing of masterbatch, powder, regrind and liquid additives
Plastic manufacturing companies are looking for different qualities in dosing systems. Some are looking for cost savings on colorants. Some are seeking a more stable production process. Others are attempting to increase efficiency or improve quality. Movacolor systems give the plastics manufacturer all of these benefits in integrated systems for dosing masterbatch, powder, regrind or liquid.
Dosing cylinder for regular output
Movacolor’s dosing cylinder is a proprietary invention. The cylinder ensures regular output from the smallest doses (0,01 kg/hr) to the largest (1000 kg/hr). It has an incredibly large capacity range for a single dosing tool (0,7 – 18 kg/hr with GX dosing cylinder). Movacolor’s proprietary system solves the problems of irregular output and stoppages often encountered with traditional dosing devices based on augers or discs.
Stepper motor for exact speed
The Movacolor dosing cylinder is driven by a stepper motor. This motor is superior to a DC motor because it functions in steps. This allows the operator to adjust the speed of the cylinder very quickly.
Neckpiece for preventing material separation
The Movacolor neckpiece prevents material separation by introducing the colorant directly into the machine throat.
