Granulate conveying Material selection

motan’s material selection stations assure that every desired connection of a material to a processing machine in your production process can be made quickly and reliably without contamination. Fixed pipe connections throughout the whole production process until the next material change ensures maximum security.

Three different material selection options are available depending on your requirements:

METROCONNECT U: a manually operated un-coded coupling table.

METROCONNECT C: a manually operated coded coupling table utilising state-of-the-art wireless RFID technology.

METROLINK: the most advanced fully automatic material selection and distribution system.

METROCONNECT U & C The next level in material selection.

The METROCONNECT U & C advanced manually operated coupling tables are available in both un-coded and coded wireless RFID versions. A high quality, engineered solution for typical conveying systems. The METROCONNECT U can easily be upgrade to a coded version.

METROCONNECT U Ergonomic design – the difference is motan.

Convenient table-top design gives you easy access to every connection. Push-fit connectors allow easy insertion of the material lines into the material coupling table. Quick release lids allow for easy removal and ensure an air tight seal. The large grip gives you lots of space for labelling.

METROCONNECT C Quality assured – since material selection will always be correct.

The METROCONNECT C wireless coded coupling table, uses RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology to proof connections and ensure that material conveys only when the correct connection is made. Essential for any application where material traceability, verification and validation is required. 

METROCONNECT C RFID sensors – sophisticated technology that is simple to use.

Compared to traditional systems, such as barcodes or laser marking, RFID technology offers important advantages in material traceability, verification and validation. Transponder data can easily be read and written.

In addition, the data can be extended, modified or replaced. This technology offers an automated production many benefits because it reduces human error and increases reliability and flexibility.

METROLINK Optimum security with the fully automatic material selection and distribution system.

METROLINK assures that every desired connection of a material to a processing machine in your production process is made automatically and without any chance of cross contamination.

METROLINK High reliability and wear resistant – through eliminating the need for flexible hoses^.

Fixed pipe connections throughout the whole production process until the next material change ensures maximum security and long service life.

METROLINK has no flexible hoses and there are no switching operations during normal conveying.

METROLINK Space saving – due to compact vertical design.

One METROLINK tower can manage up to 16 materials being conveyed to 32 machines - all this with a footprint of under 1m². 

METROLINK Optimised conveying – there are no switching operations during normal conveying.

Because of the fixed pipe connections, system throughput can be increased and several machine lines can be parallel fed with material at the same time. 

METROLINK Ensuring correctly conditioned material is delivered to the machine.

Before each material change METROLINK automatically purges the material feedline of any material. This is essential to eliminate any chance of cross contamination.

Wear resistant solutions Long-life and maintenance free.

When conveying very abrasive materials, for example glass-reinforced polyamides, it is important that the material selection station is designed to withstand wear.

One solution is to use glass material feed lines and bends. motan’s glass bends are PU coated and earthed –making them shatter proof and eliminating the danger of static.

Controls From simple cost effective solutions up to innovative state-of-the-art controls with Ethernet-based open network architecture.

METROCONNECT and METROLINK can be fully integrated into the motan CONTROLnet world or operate as stand-alone units with a 5.7” colour touch panel.
