Volumetric dosing systems for injection molding and extrusion
Movacolor develops and produces volumetric dosing systems with a unique ultra-precise dosing cylinder for extrusion and injection molding. Our volumetric dosing systems are installed in factories all over the world and can operate under almost any conditions.
Volumetric dosing entrance model: MC12 Economy
The volumetric dosing system MC12 Economy is the entrance model of Movacolor and well sold for injection molding applications. The MC12 Economy is our most economically priced dosing system and fits perfectly for coloring PET, caps and closures, toys and other applications in the plastics processing industry.
Volumetric dosing synchronization with the MC18 Synchronic
The volumetric dosing system MC18 Synchronic is mostly used in the extrusion industry. The MC18 Synchronic is equipped with a special feature that it adjusts automatically to the extruder speed. Plastic producers who opt for an automatic hopper loader to fill the hopper with masterbatch, powder or regrind choose our volumetric dosing system MC18 Synchronic.
Volumetric dosing calibration with the MC30 Auto Calibrate
The volumetric dosing system MC30 Auto Calibrate is equipped with an automatic material calibration function. Further extra features are:
- Accurate feeding through dosing cylinder
- Stepper motor speed starting from 0.1 up to 200 rpm
- Manual adjustment
- Capacity 0.07-180 kg/h, measured with normal granular masterbatch 0.8 kg/dm3
- Automatic recipes storage function
- The menu-guided control has a graphic LCD display with backlight
- A warning and alarm output and an integrated hopper loader control are also part of the MC30
- This volumetric feeder is suitable for both injection molding and extrusion
This makes the MC30 Auto Calibrate our most extended version in our volumetric dosing product range.
Volumetric dosing for small injection molding machines with the MCMicro
Our smallest volumetric dosing system is the MCMicro. This ultra-compact volumetric dosing system is especially developed for small injection molding machines. The MCMicro can be used or normal granulates and micro granulates. It is equipped with a quick release coupling, allowing easy color change.
All volumetric dosing systems are equipped with the unique Movacolor dosing cylinder. The dosing cylinder delivers extremely constant, pulsation-free volumetric dosing over a wide capacity range. This allows you to dose spot-on: no extra dosing of an expensive additive is required to compensate for irregular dosing or mixing.
Volumetric dosing sytems with a high precision dosing cylinder
All our volumetric dosing systems are equipped with a highly accurate unique dosing cylinder of Movacolor. The innovative Movacolor dosing cylinder doses the additive in a steady flow directly into the main material without any pulsations or interruptions. Dosing with a Movacolor dosing cylinder ensures far more accurate dosing than other dosing techniques using a traditional auger.
