Product category: Measuring equipment for moisture content
MOISTURE METER™ is an in-line resin moisture analyzer. With this instrument it is possible to certify the production of plastic parts and when installed directly on the processing machine, measures the actual moisture content of the plastic granules. No calibration is required and it is only necessary to select the polymer, from an included materials database, to be treated and MOISTURE METER™ will continuously control the process with sampling every 10 seconds. MOISTURE METER™ represents the missing link in the overall drying process. With so much energy focused on talking about dryers, their efficiency, the dew point, etc. everyone has ignored the principle objective… regulating how much water remains in the process resin. With MOISTURE METER™ it is now possible to know.
Complementing this innovative instrument is also the availability for on-demand analysis to produce reports on production data by hour, minute, or, in the case of single cavity mould production, a report for every printed piece.
The instrument comes equipped with Ethernet, USB, RS485 communication ports and is compatible with the Moretto Mowis™ supervising system. With the MOISTURE METER™ PLUS upgrade it is also possible to control the dryer performance by comparing the humidity from the initial part of the process to the end and automatically adjusting the dryer parameters to ensure optimal drying. This concept creates a closed loop connecting the material, dryer, process quality, and plastic processing machine and resulting in a condition that leads straight towards INDUSTRY 4.0.
Product category: Gravimetric dosing and metering equipment
After 16 years since the first DGM™ gravimetric dosing units were first produced, Moretto now announces its latest innovation. With more than 12,000 machines sold worldwide several new innovations have been implemented to make the machine even more functional and precise. The beating heart of these systems, the traditional double eyelid shutter, is unchanged, featuring 25 milliseconds per batch, which is 10 times faster than the most accredited competitors. DGM™ has a renewed chassis design particularly considering visibility to the process. The machine has four opening sides, featuring four transparent panels that provide unique visibility to the dosing process. The internal parts of the machine are illuminated with multicolor LED lighting with four different colors to signal the machine operating status. The inclined mixer offers precision mixing and emptying without stagnation. In addition, the mixer is weighed on a double load cell to ensure precise weighing and with the included totalizer function the possibility to report the actual consumption. This feature also allows for real-time indication of material consumption and transformation. With these innovations the Moretto DGM™ series of dosing units stand ready to accept the most intensive applications.
Moretto has one of the broadest range of dryers available on the market and also the largest constant performance drying systems. Now the company, with over 10,000 Dry-Air™ minidryers sold, is expanding the number of these machines equipped with a mini turbocharger and zeolite technology. The XD10™ mini-dryer has an included turbocharger, developed in-house, capable of generating the required air flow with a consumption of only 60 Watts. This product guarantees consistent performance and is equipped with industry-leading features including: dew point equalizer; variable adaptive airflow; double turbine (process and regeneration); and a color touch view control. The XD10™ mini-dryer represents a high performance mini-dryer suitable for low production and processing of techno-polymers.
EXA™ which is derived from the greek letter “exi” , the perfect number, according to mathematical principle, is a conveying system capable to manage up to six receivers. It does not require a server and it maintains all the ONE WIRE 3™ centralized system functions.
Moretto is an industry leader in plastics automation offering products and solutions across nine distinct product families, including: · Feeding & conveying · Drying · Dosing · Granulation · Process cooling · Storage · Supervision · Temperature control · Integrated systems
