Volumetric dosing systems for injection molding and extrusion

Movacolor develops and markets 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

The volumetric dosing system MDS 6 Feeder (MC12) is the entrance model of Movacolor and well sold for injection molding applications. The MDS Feeder 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 with extruder synchronization

The volumetric dosing system MDS 6 Feeder (MC18) is mostly used in the extrusion industry. The MDS 6 Feeder (MC18) 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.

Volumetric dosing for small injection molding machines

Our smallest volumetric dosing system is the MDS 200 Compact Feeder (MC12). This ultra-compact volumetric dosing system is especially developed for small injection molding machines. The MDS 200 Compact Feeder (MC12) 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.

High precision dosing cylinder

All our volumetric dosing systems are equipped with a highly accurate unique dosing cylinder. 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.
