"All of the people visiting our stand showed great interest in our updated range of conveying systems" explained Freier, before adding that "that's because there is strong demand for turnkey systems and conveying systems are central to them."

motan-colortronic's exhibits at the Plastpol 2018 comprised a cross-section of the company's product range, as well as its updated range of METRO G conveying systems - one of the highlights of the stand. The Plastpol also marked the updated range's launch on the Polish market. The new version systems feature an even greater range of options and other improvements that were inspired by customer feedback. This included critical feedback in particular about the systems' manually operated elements. In response, motan-colortronic has revised the lid, including the hinge and limit stop, as well as the tensioner on the locking mechanism, in order to enhance ease of use. The shape of the lid's seal has also been changed to make it more efficient.

By reworking the implosion valve provides the METRO G material loader with even more flexibility: The pneumatic cylinder size DN32 enables operation with greater vacuum than before. Freely selectable vacuum connections between DN28 and DN60 make connection to customer's system easier. The implosion valve can be installed easily without the need for an adaptor and is available with different seal versions: The standard silicon-free seals can quickly and simply be swapped for silicon seals, for example for medical applications or for operation at high temperatures. Another convenient feature are the new solenoid valves, which can now be operated at the touch of a button.
