The MDS Balance is a renowned gravimetric dosing unit known for its highly accurate inline dosing capabilities and innovative features.  

Equipped with advanced dosing software and a centered load cell, the MDS Balance can accurately measure the ‘loss-in-weight’ of the material in the hopper, regardless of possible deviations caused by vibrations of the production machine. Our Balance technology software automatically adjusts the feeding rate to stay as close as possible to the set point, resulting in dosing accuracy up to 0.05%. 

The MDS Balance offers plastic manufacturers complete control over their production process. It consistently proves its value in all industries, under all circumstances, including injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, and compounding.  

Due to its precise measurement and consistent material output, the MDS Balance can significantly improve material efficiency, resulting in high savings on expensive additives, reduced scrap, and adherence to the highest production standards.
