MCS Continuous Feeder

Advanced blending systems are often seen as complete plant engineered solutions. Movacolor has developed a unique modular system that allows you to put together a full gravimetric continuous blending system. Up to 15 components can be controlledfrom one controller. These systems can be installed on one extruder or on multiple co-extruders, creating a control platform for multiple continuous blenders in one system.

The system grows with your future needs. New components can easily beintegrated without changes to the controller. The MCS Continuous Feeder covers most of the available materials like granulates, regrinds, powders and liquids. All this in one system, with one standard controller and integrated loader control. All the benefits of a continuous feeder are suddenly within your reach. Our experience with in-line gravimetric dosing helps you to achieve the required accuracy for all your components, directly on the extruder.

“The MCS Continuous Feeder enables us to quickly start the production that we are planning. With this device, we have everything we need for a constant process.”
