MINICOLOR swift V
Combining additives with the virgin material at the processing machine requires excellent mixing quality and consistently accurate dosing. These requirements can be achieved and exceeded with the volumetric MINICOLOR swift V dosing and mixing unit. The units are mounted at the feed throat of the plastics processing machine and are space-saving.
The mixing cruciform is made of stainless steel. It separates the main material from the additives until they meet just above the throat of the processing machine. After flowing together, they result in a homogeneous mix with no material separation.
Excellent recipe accuracy is achieved with synchronous dosing.
Thanks to the user-friendly design of the mounting flange, fixing the unit on to different sized feed throats without the need for drilling is very easy.
The screws are inclined at an angle for a constant dosing flow insensitive to vibration. This gives you greater accuracy because machine movements have no effect on the dosing process and material slip on the screw is eliminated.
There are different sizes of wear-resistant dosing screws available. They can be removed without the use of tools.
The dosing motors are brushless which makes them maintenance-free. They are swivel mounted and can be removed without tools.
By loosening two star-grips, you can easily withdraw the dosing module in order to collect and weigh the additive sample during calibration. This means you save time and there is no material spillage.
Material changeovers and cleaning are fast and require no tools. The unit is easy to operate and saves you valuable time because of the quick-change system, a removable supply hopper, a swivel mounted motor, and a dosing screw with a quick release connection. The complete dosing module can be used as a colour cassette, allowing you fast colour changes without any previous cleaning.
The modern microprocessor control comes with 16 user interface languages. It is suitable for one or two dosing modules and has a user-friendly additive calibration wizard. The regrind compensation function ensures that only the necessary masterbatch is dosed.
