Moretto’s automations at Chinaplas 2018

Moretto’s automations at Chinaplas… From 24th to 27th April 2018, Moretto S.p.a., leading Italian provider of wide range of automations and technologies for Material Handling, Drying, Blending, Heat Transfer and Size Reduction equipment, will attend Chinaplas, important event that gathers in Shanghai the main players in the global plastics industry.

Since 1980, Moretto has been providing plastic processors with integrated systems and auxiliary equipment solutions, enabling process automation and optimization, particularly for the high precision requirements of the injection molding of PET preforms.

Moretto’s automations are the result of a continuous investment in research and fully reflects the guidelines of the Smart factory.

Today Moretto is projected towards the global market. In addition to its headquarters in Italy, the group boasts a global presence with 7 sales branches including China.

The Chinese plastic industry market has huge potential and is increasingly sensitive to new technologies. With its local branch Moretto enters in the market offering excellent solutions, know-how, pre-during and after sale service, able to promptly respond to the needs of Chinese customers and establish long-term relationships. Moretto assures its business outlook is global while its daily practices are local and responsive.

According to Moretto, Drying has always been a sector of excellence. At Chinaplas the spotlight will be focused on EUREKA PLUS and MOISTURE METER MANAGER.

Eureka Plus is a Modular, Energy-Saving, Resin Drying system, claimed to be “the most advanced low consumption drying system available on the market”. A project born from over 15 years of studies, simulations and experiments and which continues to evolve including new tools and applications.

Eureka Plus is comprised of four Moretto-patented technologies:
X MAX high performance, modular multi-bed dryer with consistent dew point, combined with FLOWMATIK, a dynamic airflow management device, OTX drying hoppers with superior mass flow drying characteristics and now MOISTURE METER MANAGER, a revolutionary In-real and real-time moisture analyzer.

Moisture Meter Manager measures In-line the actual residual moisture content in the granule and checks that the polymer is adequately dehumidified immediately prior the transformation process.

The delta measurement between the initial and final moisture content of the pellet, at the hopper inlet and outlet, allows Moisture Meter Manager to automatically manage the dryer working conditions and to adapt the process on the fly defining process parameters for proper drying and maximum energy efficiency. This process allows the dryer to operate based on the condition of the polymer at any given time, providing a real “drying on demand“. By acquiring the initial data of the material and knowing the final moisture requested, Moisture Meter Manager holds a complete control over the process and manages all the process variables (type of material, final moisture set, hourly production, treatment temperature, specific Airflow).

Moisture Meter Manager effectively closes the loop on resin drying by integrating the dryer in an adaptive system as requested by the Smart Factory.
