The Plasticolor Mixing Station provides a way to take precise control of the materials being fed into your production machine. Up to eight single units simultaneously feed the virgin and component materials into the Neckpiece mounted on the throat of the injection molding machine or extruder.
Each material cascades into the Neckpiece on an individually controlled percentage basis .. guaranteeing an accurate, precise mix of the material components. Because the Neckpiece only contains a small amount of the precisely mixed materials, changes in the mix are available to the machine almost immediately.
When configured as a Flood Feed unit, the individual units are simultaneously started when the level of the material mix in the Neckpiece drops below the low level sensor in the Neckpiece and will continue to run until the material reaches the high level sensor. Since all of the component materials are consumed out of the Neckpiece, changes in the extruder speed or injection molding cycle times will have NO EFFECT on the material proportions or the accuracy of the mix in the Neckpiece.
