Hall 9/B24 Materials handling system maker Motan-Colortronic will be showing its Luxor A dryer range, which has been upgraded to include the ATTN automatic temperature and dew point levelling system. ATTN is designed for

applications where material drying can only take place

Piovan adapts to

the market Hall 9/C59 Italian ancillary equipment producer Piovan is using K2013 to launch its new ‘Industry Expertise’ approach to the plastics processing industry. The new approach breaks

the industry down into discrete application sectors, within which Piovan can assemble optimised solutions that meet very specific process require- ments. For example, packag- ing, which is one of eight broad application sectors, is now broken down within this new strategy by product type, such as PET preforms, caps and closures, or ties. Piovan says this approach

to the market recognises the in-depth knowledge it has built up over the past decade in understanding the distinc- tive needs of customers in specific application areas, which has prompted the development of products such as the Ryng and WinFactory control systems. ❙


within a narrow dew point window. It constantly regulates and documents the dew point of the process air to ensure regulation within one degree. The system is said to reduce the risk of overdrying. The company will also show

examples of its full range of handling equipment, including the Ultrablend gravimetric

dosers and blenders for medical applications and Luxor CA S dryer for miniature and micro moulding applications. Visitors can also see the latest version of the Metrolink control, which now features a 5.7-inch touch panel and can handle up to 15 machines and 16 materials per tower. ❙

Movacolor updates dosing equipment

Hall 11/D42

Netherlands-based Mova- color’s MCTwin is a new gravimetric dosing system designed to simultaneously dose polymer regrind and masterbatch. The new unit is based on a dosing cylinder system that

doses directly into the main material unit, which the company says helps to avoid colour separation, and is controlled via a simple touch- screen unit. It uses two MSBalance dosing units, one of which acts as a master and doses the regrind and the other a slave for masterbatch. This arrangement

is said to ensure that

only sufficient master- batch is used for correct coloration. ❙

Melt flow test systems from Instron Hall 10/J18

Test equipment maker Instron will show its new Ceast MF30 and MF50 melt flow testers and an automated contacting extensometer option for its tensile testing products. The CEAST MF30 is a

single-weight system, designed to determine melt mass-flow rate (MFR) and melt volume rates. The equipment includes a high-resolution digital encoder and an N/C-controlled weight lifter. The MF50 is designed for single-weight and multi- weight tests and offers a higher level of automation, safety, and user-friendliness. The AutoX750 high-resolu-

tion automatic contacting extensometer meets the requirements of ISO 9513, ASTM E83, and ISO 527-1 (2011). The new accessory features automatic gauge length positioning, adjustable contact force with reference label, and multiple knife-edge options to accommodate different materials. ❙

Magnetic platen extends limits Hall 11/C75

Germany-based Roemheld will introduce a new generation of magnetic rapid clamping systems for injection mould tool applications. The new magnetic clamping

plates are said to provide maximum force density across the entire platen surface,

allowing moulds to be secured ‘virtually without weight limits.’ They are suitable for use in both vertical and horizontal clamping systems and at temperatures up to 240˚C. The company will also show

a force sensor that measures the force applied to the platen and transmits it direct to a

smartphone. It is designed to be used with the company’s latest control unit, which complies with safety category IV and performance level ‘e’ in the EN201 and EN289 press standards. A new tool changing cart with automatic docking completes the display. ❙
