Optometric dosing for high precision micro-injection molding and extrusion
Movacolor optometric dosing technology is unique in the world of dosing. The optometric dosing unit is equipped with an optical sensor, which counts the pieces of masterbatch literally, pellet by pellet. With this breakthrough we are able to dose even more accurate with lower capacities.
Optometric dosing systems for small high-precision end products
The optometric dosing technology was specially developed by Movacolor to handle the manufacturing of ultra-small high-precision end products on micro-injection molding machines and micro-extruders. Shot weights of less than 1 gram are no exception. Because of the narrow tolerances on the high precision end products and the limited mixing capabilities of these small injection molding machines and extruders, most of the time pre-compounded material is used for these high precision applications.
These specially manufactured pre-compounds are tremendously expensive, because of the small production batch. As a result the engineers of Movacolor developed the optometric dosing technology. This highly precise patented dosing system makes it possible to make high cost reductions by using standard virgin material and a masterbatch or additive dosing on the micro-injection molding machines and micro-extruders.
