Industry 4.0 technologies and processes at the Plastpol 2018

Besides the innovative automation solutions, Wittmann Battenfeld Polska will also present a wide range of peripheral appliances. The dryers on display will include the Aton primus G segmented wheel dryer, two models from the range of Drymax primus E compact dryers, each equipped with a Feedmax S 3-net material loader, and a Drymax E300 battery dryer as well as two Silmax E drying silos, equipped with a Feedmax B material loader.

The Aton segmented wheel dryer consists of a number of chambers containing a loose filling of desiccant balls which, in combination with the innovative 3-save process, ensures cost-efficient energy utilization and a continuous drying process with a constant dew point. The Drymax models are dry air dryers, which operate with two desiccant cartridges and consequently deliver a continuous flow of process air with a consistently high quality of drying air for perfect drying of plastic granulate.

In addition to the material loaders mentioned above, appliances from the Feedmax basic G and Feedmax plus G ranges will be exhibited, as well as an RFID-coded Codemax coupling station including the M7.3 IPC dryer control system which, in the event of an operating error, stops the transport of incorrect material to the processing machine.

In the field of metering technology, Wittmann Battenfeld Polska will bring the Gravimax primus G14M gravimetric blender to the Plastpol, together with a standard volumetric metering system, the Dosimax MC basic. The metering valves of the Gravimax G14 come with a highly intelligent mechanism, so that the same valve can be used for constant, reliable metering of both virgin material and granulates of limited pourability and proneness to bridging.

Moreover, Wittmann will assert its temperature control competence at the Plastpol by presenting its broad range of appliances from the Tempro series. With the models Tempro primus C90, Tempro basic C90, Tempro plus D 2/180 and Tempro plus D Micro 2/160, it covers the entire range of temperature controllers with indirect cooling.

The extensive choice of available pumps with maximum displacement rates from 30 l/min to 90 I/min and maximum pressures from 3.8 bar to 6 bar ensures reliable process management. The plus D models are dual-circuit appliances equipped with ultrasound flow meters, which continuously monitor the flow quantity with the help of a tolerance window. The Tempro plus D120, which comes with a vortex flow meter, stands out by its direct cooling system with an enormous average cooling performance of 120 kW. The bandwidth of heating performances ranges from 9 kW to 46 kW. Furthermore, pumps are available with outputs of up to 3.5 kW; max. pressures of 5.9 bar and max. displacement rates of 280 l/min.

Finally, visitors to the Plastpol will also have an opportunity to experience first-hand the competence of the Wittmann Group in the area of granulators. The exhibits include G-Max 33 granulators and the new S-Max 2 model. The granulators from the G-Max series have been specially developed for inline recycling of sprue removed from injection molding machines with clamping forces of up to 400 t. They operate with a high degree of efficiency, save energy, take up little space and are equipped with a sound-insulated cutting chamber, which minimizes noise generation.
