MMS Weight

The MMS Weight is specially designed to measure the actual feed capacity of an extruder. It has an integrated weighing module to accurately measure throughput and an integrated knife valve to control the filling. Combined with one or more Movacolor units, the MMS Weight tracks even the smallest capacity variation of the extruder. It adjusts the additive dosing from the dosing units accordingly. Dried material with a temperature up to 180°C can be handled with the MCWeight.

This throughputmeasurement system enables you to get the best out of your extrusion line. It gives you real time insight into your actual line capacity and tracks the consumption of your materials. In combination with our MCLine Control it can even control yourcomplete extrusion line including upstream and downstream equipment.

“The MMS Weight made our extrusion process much more stable, which saved raw material, but also expensive additives such as dye and catalyst. But more importantly,we reduced our scrap by more than 70%.”

High efficiency

Reduce waste and save costs by producing more consistently.

Wide capacity range

Capable of dosing at extreme low- and high dosing rates.

High accuracy
