The MDS 12 Balance has gained a strong reputation as a leading dosing unit renowned for its exceptional precision in gravimetric dosing and its array of innovative features. Featuring advanced dosing software, this exceptional unit can accurately measure the “loss-in-weight” of materials in the hopper, automatically adjusting the dosing rate to compensate for vibrations and other deviations caused by the production machine. This remarkable capability ensures dosing accuracy of up to 0.02%.

With the MDS 12 Balance, plastic manufacturers gain comprehensive control over their production processes, enjoying its consistent performance across all industries, including injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, and compounding. The dosing cylinder guarantees a stable production process, even when handling low dosage rates. By delivering precise measurements and consistent material output, the MDS 12 Balance significantly enhances efficiency, leading to substantial savings on costly additives, reduced scrap, and compliance with high-quality production standards.

As part of the Movacolor modular dosing concept, the MDS 12 Balance can be customized to meet the specific requirements of your plastic production process. Its adaptability ensures seamless integration into your existing setup while maximizing the benefits of this exceptional dosing unit.
