High-precision gravimetric batch dosing in any situation
The DGM Gravix series dosing units are now a standard among customers who seek maximum precision in batch gravimetric dosing even in extreme use conditions. DGM Gravix is the dosing unit that, thanks to its particular control with exclusive Vibration Immunity System and the double eyelid system, doses with precision up to 0.01% even when installed on a blow moulding machine, without being affected by the continuous movements and vibrations to which it is subjected.
The DGM Gravix dosing units cover dosing requirements for granule, powder and flakes materials, with dedicated applications, up to 12 materials and 12,000 kg/h. Applications dedicated to micro dosing, such as Rotopulse, make these machines extremely flexible in their use in the department.
Systems dedicated to the beverage world for the dosing of virgin PET, R-PET and flakes guarantee homogeneous mixtures and very high precision in the order of 0,1% even for very high hourly productions.
No overdosing of additives and colorants with the DPK weight-in-loss system
DPK is a compact precise weight-in-loss dosing system, suitable for the dosing of small amounts of masterbatch or additives. The technology of the load cells and the control algorithm, make DPK reaching dosing accuracy of up to ± 0.03%. The masterbatch or additive to be dosed is contained in a hopper built in a specific transparent resistant acrylic material, free from electrostatic charges, which makes immediately visible the content material and the level of load and avoids the stop of material on the hopper walls. The hopper is easily removable without the use of tools and, together with the intelligent storage and recognition system of the masterbatches alongside the machine, the recipe change is even more immediate.
Multicomponent micro-dosing with DPM
For micro-dosing, Moretto also offers DPM, a precision microdoser available in single-component versions and up to 4 hoppers. Pulsed dosing is immune to vibrations and does not require a mixer thanks to the simultaneous dosing of the components. The hoppers are removable. It can also be used for regrind recovery thanks to its compact construction.
4.0 Technologies for process supervision and control
For the supervision and control of plastics processing plants, Moretto has developed the advanced Mowis 3 supervision system, a modular software capable of adapting to the needs and to the qualitative, productive and Managerial objectives of each customer, allowing connectivity between machines, processes, departments, plants and factories.
Mowis 3, a proprietary Scada software entirely developed and designed "in House" is the latest evolution of Moretto's advanced supervision system, an essential tool for efficient and safe production, also of the "lights out" type.
Through Mowis 3 the user monitors the status of each machine and each operation of the system: it records anomalies and creates a history, sets and/or modifies the process parameters, stores the changes to the system parameters, programs the work times, manages material consumption and production lots, creates process reports in real time and operating and efficiency statistics. Connected to the "service" it provides information on the status of the machines and identifies their maintenance needs. Mowis 3 connects up to 1100 clients.
Mowis 3 has customized modules that allow a total "4.0 tracking" of the process: the "Lotto batch" module allows to trace the batches of material through the entire production process, from procurement to their transformation; "Sil-Control" avoids human errors in loading materials into the destination silos, "Item-Go" based on the item to be produced, defines and sets the parameters for each machine, automatically from the silo to the processing machine, "Mould Control” automatically recognizes the mould and defines the process parameters. These and others are the custom modules, which have now become pillars in the supervisory systems installed by Moretto at customer facilities that appreciate its efficiency, reliability and ease of management.
Mowis 3 is remotely controllable and communicates with business management (ERP), production (MES) and customer data management systems via the universal OPC UA protocol.
Solutions for temperature control and cooling
Moretto offers a complete range of thermo and cooling systems to satisfy any production requirement, from single unit on the side of the machine, to ad hoc developed modular open centralized systems with a maniacal attention to total energy efficiency.
The large amount of energy required for cooling processes in the plastics processing industry requires extremely efficient and flexible systems. The X Cooler series of modular chillers was created specifically with these prerogatives. The scalability of the cooling capacity makes it possible to supply the cooling capacity according to the real needs with a consequent drastic reduction in energy consumption, realizing a clear reduction in operating costs. The realization of X Cooler and of the smaller series of machines for installation inside the production plant, saw an obsessive attention to the construction details, which led, in some cases, to not being satisfied with what existed and to the creation of dedicated components to obtain the maximum results in performance terms.
The temperature controllers of the TE-KO series ensure absolute efficiency and precision in automatic temperature control both in the moulds of injection moulding machines and in the cylinders and rollers of the extruders. Reliability, speed of temperature regulation, reduction of consumption and ease of use are the major records of these machines. Available in water, pressurized and oil versions with temperatures up to 300 ° C based on the customer's production needs.
"Be Tomorrow" Moretto's commitment to the planet of today and tomorrow
Interactive totems and video walls will animate the Moretto space with contents aimed at illustrating technologies and solutions dedicated to each application sector, together with the various initiatives undertaken by the company, among which the “Be Tomorrow” eco-sustainable activity project focused on: circular economy and development of new energy-saving technologies, recycling, bio-polymers,...
Moretto and circular economy
Great attention is paid to circular economy, the central theme of K 2019. Moretto participates, in collaboration with a well-known OEM, in a demonstration unit dedicated to the production of coffee cups made with bio-polymers: a 100% organic product, washable and reusable up to 500 times.
Special happy PET!
On the first day of exhibition, all PET packaging producers are invited for an aperitif from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm at Moretto’s stand where the plant and product solutions dedicated to PET will be presented.
