Accessories: inline mixers for injection molding or extrusion
Motorized inline mixers and mixers for PET are also part of Movacolor’s dosing accessories product line. The inline mixers of Movacolor have a user-friendly design which makes them easy in use. The disassemble process of the inline mixer is made simple. Just remove the 3 phase-motor of the inline mixer with the counter rotating mixer blades and all parts are reachable for maintenance and cleaning.
For the most of injection molding or extrusion processes the general inline dosing principle works and adding an inline mixer is not necessary. However when the plasticizing screw of the extruder or injection molding machine has a limited homogenization capability, it is useful to use an inline mixer. Movacolor has developed mixers that perform a perfect job in homogenization and coating of low melting colors or additives Whether or not to use an inline mixer depends on the kind of plastic production process. The dosing specialists of Movacolor can give you a professional tailor made advice based on your type of production process.
