Quality control and analysis for pellets and color masterbatch
Measuring color as part of a quality control or quality assurance program is a complex topic, because these days, color consistency is an important component of product quality. High-quality products are therefore produced within extremely narrow color tolerances. As a result, color deviations can be quite expensive. Color corrections take a lot of time, reduce efficiency, and produce off-spec material, and are therefore unacceptably expensive. A complaint usually costs more than a complete color measuring system. In an era of quality management systems and certification in accordance with DIN, ISO, or other requirements and directives, a company can hardly afford not to check the color consistency of its dyed and lacquered plastic, glass, or powder products. The naked eye is often insufficient. An objective production-related measurement technology must be employed.
Extensive knowledge of production processes enables MAAG to develop innovative and pioneering solutions time and time again. The result of these developments is a carefully coordinated portfolio of machines and systems which is unique in its depth and breadth. We think the world could be more colorful!
Efficient process control and color measurement on the pellets
The COLOR CONTROL system was developed for online color measurement directly on the pellet and is one of the most modern online color measuring systems in the world.
Fast measurement: <2 minutes
Only 35 ml of measuring material
Bad ones are filtered out
Fast color correction
The extruder does not have to be stopped
Car quality monitoring
Mixing quality control
Dosing unit control
Increases production capacity
Precise and quick dosing through optimal dosing precision and flexible and automatic process control
Precise dosing is a prerequisite for high-quality products. Complex color recipes in particular require trouble-free solutions during the dosing process. Optimum dosing precision and flexible and automated process control are decisive criteria – requirements that our dosing system meets. The system can be expanded modularly, and thus grows with the needs of plant operators.
Highly accurate measurement
Dosage of up to six ingredients
Dye change within 60 s
Robust and easy to clean
Integration into COLOR CONTROL
Guarantees higher quality
Innovative pellet sampling unit for laboratory applications
The AUTO PELLET SAMPLER is designed for the lab or any other designated place where pellet samples from the production are needed. The fully automatic sampling system transports a container specially developed to collect pellets from the classifying sieve to the measuring device – overcoming several floors or distances of up to 300 m is no obstacle.
Compact design and flexible placement
Easy to use and automatic cleaning
Automatic sample of up to 2 kg of pellets from several production lines
Compact, fully automatic pellet sampling unit
Whether raw material or end product, modern industry often produces large quantities of bulk material. Regular analyses are required to ensure that pellets meet your quality standards. The BATCH SAMPLER is a compact, fully automatic system taking pellet samples by means of a suction lance at the end of the classifier.
Automatic sampling 2 to 5 kg
Integrated gravimetric control
Integration into existing process management
Compactly built and flexible positioning, IP 55 protection
Plug and Play
One button control
