High precision gravimetric blenders

Quantum embodies innovations that radically change the way injection moulding machines and extruders are fed with blends of materials (virgin, recycled, masterbatch and additives). These innovations contribute to increasing the efficiency of production and feature improved design, innovative technologies and high-performance components, which translate into real advantages for the customer.
Quantum is utilised in all application environments such as PET Preforms & Bottles, Rigid Packaging, Automotive Components, Technical Parts, Medical Solutions, Thermoforming & Technical Sheets, Flexible Films, Pipes, Profiles, Cables, Fibres & Strapping, Recycling and Compounds.

Its flexibility derives from two distinctive and unique characteristics:
• All the surfaces that come into contact with the process material are stainless steel, usable also in the most critical environments, like those found in medical and food & beverage sectors. Low roughness prevents friction and permits uniform treatment of the polymer pellets, preventing the alteration of physical conditions. Quantum therefore protects the physical characteristics of the raw material, and thereby the quality of the plastic product.
• Every blender comes with up to 6 dosing stations, which can easily be removed, for emptying or cleaning. Each dosing station is dedicated to a single ingredient - be it principal or additive; easy removal therefore aids material changes and enables optimal operating conditions to be immediately resumed without contamination from powder or residue. These interventions do not require the blender to be dismantled and can be done manually by an individual operator. The dosing stations can be used across all Quantum blenders in a factory.

Quantum E

Gravimetric batch blenders with continuous extrusion control

This innovative dosing system has been developed to ensure high accuracy, versatility and accuracy in extrusion processes, enhancing the advantages of both the gravimetric batch technology and the loss-in-weight systems.

Quantum E allows a versatility of use that has never been achieved before, thanks to 8 dosing stations: each station is added or replaced by a simple mechanical operation without the need for complex manoeuvring and in conditions of complete safety for the operator and for nearby equipment. The Quantum E dosing system has been designed and built in such a way as to allow complete traceability of each component and the repeatability of each cycle, also as a consequence of the new trapezoidal shape of the dosing gate, which allows further precision, with the integration of a rapid unloading device.

The particular design of the patented spherical mixer, with double load cells, prepares a completely homogeneous and precise blend of the various ingredients.

The innovative drying solution for a broad range of applications

Genesys is a single-hopper, individual or central, fully automatic drying system. It can adapt and automatically control operating parameters based on ambient temperature, initial moisture level, type and quantity of polymer, the final moisture content of the polymer, and granule size. This innovative drying system adjusts and controls optimal operating settings for the material to be dried, using only the overall amount of energy strictly required. The settings are constantly compared with the data collected by the sensors installed on the system. A patented measuring unit, located in the air supply line, adjusts and controls the air flow instantaneously and independently. The airflow is modulated automatically by the drying unit, resulting in optimum process operating conditions.

Compressed air drying

The new Piovan Dryers of the DPA Series use compressed air for the treatment of hygroscopic polymers. 6 models, with a drying capacity ranging from 0,5 to 25 kg/h and average Dew Point value of -25°C (can be extended up to -40°C in the configuration with desiccant towers).

Self-adaptation of the working parameters:
Thanks to the Material Database included in the standard configuration, the control automatically regulates the process conditions once the material has been selected and the hourly throughput has been set. The open Material Database, containing 50 materials complete with pre-defined set values for optimal processing, can be modified, customised and integrated with new data in line with the customer’s production.

Control of correct dehumidification:
The electronic system of the DPA dryers includes the Drying Control function. It continuously checks the loading times of the drying hopper and the drying times, and it signals critical events.

Maximum possibility of inspection:
The drying hopper is equipped with removable diffusing cone, for cleaning operations for simple and rapid material changes.

Automatic coupling stations

The new Easylink+ range has a state-of-the-art cleaning system integrated in the bottom inlet to guarantee perfect cleaning of the main arms and prevent contamination. The new main arms are manufactured with a special hardening treatment for even greater wear resistance.

The floor space requirement is minimal even for the largest models with 60 inlets/outlets. Easylink+ has a compact, vertical design with moving parts inaccessible for optimal operator safety. In the case of applications where absence of contamination is critical, a slide gate can be installed on every outlet as a barrier against residual granules. Pneumatic fitting positions are encoder-controlled to ensure correct selection of the material source. The drives are equipped with inverters for fast, precise movements.

An Easylink+ coupling station is able to control up to 60 sources and 60 destinations, and can be configured using all or some of the inlets and outlets, keeping the option of subsequent expansions open.

Easylink+ is essential for reliable, complete material traceability.

Winfactory 4.0

The supervision software for the digital factory

Winfactory 4.0 is the production process control and management software developed by Piovan, designed to supervise the digital factory.

The integration of production, distribution and IT systems in manufacturing is the keystone of the smart factory concept. Piovan puts it into practice by evolving its process control and management software in accordance with Industry 4.0 guidelines. The new product combines the typical Winfactory supervision functions with a wide array of new ones, the building blocks for constructing a tailor-made system.

New characteristics include:
● more control of the production process: thanks to the material traceability system, which enables the customer to know, at all times, which batch of raw material has been transformed into the finished product, and where every batch is within the production process.
● interactivity and usability: the manuals of every machinery are now available on-line, and the customer can download any other machine-related document (internal operating instructions, servicing reports, etc.). In case of alarms classified as critical, an email alert can also be sent to selected users.
● state-of-the-art, customisable analysis tools: the package includes performance control tools, such as one for monitoring the conveying system's performance and degree of use, and analysis and diagnostics tools such as customisable trends, allowing the combination and comparison of different variables, or the Pareto chart for analysing the most frequent alarms.
● integrated management: line recipe management and scheduling have been introduced by groups of machines, for faster, more coherent control of the entire system, through automation of routine procedures.
● communication and data exchange: WebService is now available for on-line data exchange with the customer's MES, ERP or supervision systems. WebService has been chosen because it is a flexible, universal solution, irrespective of the programming language or hardware used.

The benefits of the online measurement of acetaldehyde content in PET preforms

PETes is a method of analysis that allows measuring the acetaldehyde contained in PET preforms in a simple, rapid, reliable, repetitive and repeatable manner. The whole preform is analysed, keeping the principle of the gas chromatography technology. The result is accuracy, stability and repeatability, as the analysis is not anymore subject to any preventative preparation of the sample. One more advantageous characteristic of the PETes AA Analyzer is its compactness. In one single desktop type cabinet, the unit incorporates one de-adsorption cell, one gas chromatograph, one microprocessor control and one colour LCD screen.

New generation filterless receivers

PureFlo eliminates the need for ordinary maintenance of the vacuum receiver (filter cleaning) and improves the conveying capacity of the overall system.
The plastic granule moves through the conveying pipes carried by an airflow generated at negative pressure by a vacuum unit.
The velocity the plastic granule reaches during conveying varies between 15 metres/second at the pick-up point and 25 metres/second at the end of the line.
In a conventional solution the plastic granule enters the receiver at the end velocity, ie 25 metres/second, and stops by hitting on the inner walls of the receiver body.

The innovative and unique design of PureFlo allows the plastic granule not to keep its end velocity all the way into the receiver body but, through a Right Angle bend, to dissipate the entire kinetic force it picked up during conveyance.
The granules fall into the receiver body, where they have a residual speed of 1 metre/second. It directs the flow to the base of the receiver where the air gradually loses pressure and velocity.

The universal device for production monitoring

An extremely simple system to measure productivity and efficiency of the feeding line.
In order to have an instant and precise measurement of the quantity of material transferred from the container to the hopper, allowing operators to take prompt action on the machine’s operating parameters and, above all, to be able to have information on the machine’s effective productivity, Piovan has designed and manufactured a special production monitoring system, called “Ryng”.
Ryng is structured as a component that is inserted between the loading container and the storage hopper with a high-precision weighing device placed inside it.
The system uses proprietary software, set according to specific algorithms which “filter” and “interpret” the data it gathers and consequently indicate the actual quantity of transferred material. Ryng actually measures the quantity of material that the container loads into the hopper, providing information directly from the field and therefore allowing real-time comparisons to be made at any time between the machine’s expected production and its actual production.
In addition, the software is programmed to exclude or reduce to a minimum any measurement fluctuations that may be caused by the inevitable vibrations felt throughout the feeder system due to the machine’s normal operation. So, the system achieves high precision measurements (with a maximum error rate of less than 1%).
