MC18: in-line dosage system for injection molding and extrusion

The MC18 is together with the MC12 and MC30 our showpiece in volumetric dosing. These dosing units have proved their value since Movacolor started. The units are installed in factories all over the world and can
operate under almost any conditions. 

Depending on the material, the unit can be tailor-made for dosing free-flowing powders, regrinds or normal granulates. The units add additive on the basis of volume. The MC18 unit is controlled by rpm setting.

The Movacolor dosing cylinder® in combination with the stepper motor ensures maximum control with no stoppages or pulsations. The MC18 can be equipped with an automatic hopper loader for automatically filling the stainless steel hopper.

"Since we use a MC18 dosing system we save up to 50% on colorants.”
