Function of dosing stations
A dosing station system combines not only dosing units, but all components from the machine feed point, such as the hopper for the main material, the hopper loader, the magnetic separator etc. It could be a multiple-component dosing system (e.g. catalyst/colour) or a multiple colour change system, for example.
Like in the individual unit, the main material flows freely into the screw of the processing machine. The screw of the PLASTICOLOR device feeds the material to be dosed into the main material flowing through the neckpiece.
The materials are mixed very consistently (homogenised) in the production machine. The short distance between dosing and processing prevents the materials from separating.
Dosing systems are mainly suitable for processes where the speed and throughput of the processing machine are constant to a large extent.
