MCBalance

MCBalance: gravimetric high precision dosing
The MCBalance* is the highest standard in gravimetric dosing. It proves its value on a daily basis in all branches, under all circumstances in injection molding, blow molding and extrusion. 

The dosing cylinder and patented weighing technology ensure extremely accurate dosing, even when low dosage rates are required. In this way, high savings on expensive additives can be achieved. 

The continuous loss-in-weight measuring feature and automatic motor speed adjustment are key to a stable production process. This guarantees high quality end products and fewer rejects.

* also for clean room and high temperature applications

Maximum control, efficiency and savings for plastics producers
Gravimetric in-line dosing system MCBalance offers plastic producing companies maximum control, maximum efficiency and maximum savings. Through continuous loss-in-weight measuring, one is ensured of the best results for the best price.

The MCBalance dosing system continuously calibrates the dosages and adjusts automatically. The MCSmart system enables the producer to monitor all MCBalance dosing systems from one computer.

Plastic processors worldwide choose this gravimetric dosing unit for stability in coloring with masterbatch, powder or regrind. This gravimetric unit can easily be adjusted to a multi-component system, so that you can dose up to six additives at the same time!

“The MCBalance is the best investment when it comes to dosing. The payback period was six months and that is quite extraordinary.”

Features MCBalance
  • Capable of dosing at extremely low dosage rates
  • Continuous loss-in-weight measuring
  • Automatic material calibration
  • Integrated hopper loader control
  • Recipes storage function
  • 8” full color touch screen
  • Industry 4.0 ready
Benefits MCBalance
  • Extremely accurate dosing
    The dosing cylinder releases the additive in a steady flow. The stepper motor ensures maximum control with no stoppages or pulsations. There is no other method in the world as accurate as this.
  • User-friendly
    Anyone can operate the MCBalance. Moreover, MCSmart enables you to monitor all your MCBalance units from one computer. Additives can be changed in less than 60 seconds and the units are easy to clean.
  • Modular system
    The MCBalance is a modular system that can be configured easily to your needs: for dried materials, for regrinds, for free-flowing powders, multi component extrusion or with integrated hopper loaders.

MCHybrid 30

MCHybrid 30: the best of dosing and blending in one system
The MCHybrid 30* is a unique dosing concept that combines two technologies into one system: batch blending and in-line dosing.

The main materials or regrinds are mixed in an extreme compact gravimetric batch blender. Because the system only blends the main materials, the blending speed is high and therefore the batch blender remains small.

The additives are dosed gravimetrically in-line, directly on the throat of the injection molding machine or extruder.

By using these two blending and dosing technologies in one machine, you are able to control the main materials in any given ratio and at the same time dose additives at low percentages with unequalled accuracy.

* patent pending

If requested, the blender itself can also be used without the in-line blending units. In that case the capacity and the accuracy will reduce compared to the MCHybrid concept.

The MCHybrid 30 is also available in a specially developped regrind version: the MCHybrid 30R-series. Interested in this special regrind version of the MCHybrid 30? Inform with our dosing specialists.

Features MCHybrid 30
  • Fully gravimetric
  • 8” full color touch screen with user-friendly interface
  • Able to store up to 1,000 recipes
  • Capacity max. 350 kg/h
  • Removable and spill-free hoppers
  • 2-4 main components and max. 14 in-line additives
  • Extremely compact
  • Able to handle powders and liquids in one system
  • Quick and easy change of additives
  • 100% control of all your materials
  • Industry 4.0 ready
Benefits MCHybrid 30
  • Compact design
    When only the main components are batch blended, a high capacity can be achieved with a relatively small gravimetric hybrid batch blender system.
  • Different materials handled
    The in-line dosing of the additives allows easy color change plus the option to use additives that cannot be handled with a regular batch blender, such as powders or liquids.
  • Extremely accurate
    As the additives are dosed in-line, no segregation can take place which prevents color variations.

The MCHybrid 200 is available for capacities up to 1,000 kg/h with 2-8 blending components and up to maximum 14 in-line dosing components.

If requested, the blender itself can also be used without the in-line dosing units. In that case the capacity and the accuracy will reduce compared to the MCHybrid concept.

MCTwin

MCTwin: the optimum way to handle regrind
Reusing rejects and sprues in the form of regrind can result in saving substantial amounts of colorant. The secret? Dosing masterbatch, powder, liquid or another additive and regrind simultaneously. 

One dosing unit of the MCTwin functions as the master unit and doses regrind, while the second operates in conjunction with the master unit and doses the additive. In practice this means that the more regrind is available, the less colorant is added. 

This enables you to avoid overconsumption of additives and to reuse the maximum of regrind. The process is fully automatic, so you always dose the maximum percentage of available regrind. The quality remains constant, production run after production run, 24/7. 

The MCTwin uses Movacolor’s gravimetric dosing technology. This means continuous loss-in-weight measurement and automatic adjustment. The functionality of dosing regrind in combination with the additive makes the MCTwin a sustainable solution for your production process.

Features MCTwin
  • Continuous loss-in-weight measuring
  • Automatic coloring correction depending on recycle material
  • Ultra-compact three component system
  • Direct mounting on machine throat
  • 8” full color touch screen
  • Integrated hopper loader control
  • Industry 4.0 ready
Benefits MCTwin
  • Easy to install
    The in-line dosing units with integrated hopper loaders have a low building height and can always be installed directly on top of your machine.
  • Full flexibility
    The unique modular system gives you the opportunity to add extra units in the future, depending on the material and the production process.
  • Small footprint
    With the closed loop function, the sprues from the injection molding process are directly fed back into the process. No big intermediate storage hoppers are required. The amount of colorant added is automatically adjusted to the availability of regrind.
