Masterbatch Feeders [Movacolor]

Dosing regrind and masterbatch simultaneously with the MCTwin

Setting the goal for saving colorants ánd efficiently re-using rejects and sprouts? The MCTwin is the name of the dosing unit you are looking for. This dosing system offers gravimetric control over the injection molding production process.

The MCTwin is a gravimetric dosage system that combines two MCBalance dosing units. The MCBalance features proven technology that contributes to stability, efficiency, savings and quality. One dosing unit functions as the master unit. This dosing system doses the regrind. The second dosing unit follows the master unit. In practice this means that the regrind is used optimally and the masterbatch is added when necessary for sufficient colorant. This enables plastics producers to prevent the overconsumption of masterbatch.
