Successful results for Moretto at PLAST’09

At Plast’09, an exhibition that took place in Milan at the end of March, Moretto S.p.A. launched latest developments in its products range. The company, global leader in the production of automation for the processing of plastics, has introduced innovative solutions and cutting-edge technologies.

During the five day-event, over 700 visitors came to the stand to obtain information about the latest news. Numerous important projects were dis-cussed and a number of valuable commercial relations were forged. Due to the open and welcoming display of the exhibits, Moretto stood out among other exhibitors. The entire range of innovative products was pre-sent. Visitors were able to obtain valuable information about product fea-tures and benefits, including machine performances. Touch-screen panels provided easy access to all relevant data, as did information available di-rectly from the machines on show.

Considering the current economic situation, visitors showed particular in-terest in cost reduction and greater concern in the optimization of energy consumption. Linking high-tech design and performance efficiency with low energy consumption, thus providing tangible solutions to a wide range of customer requirements, products by Moretto have thus received wel-come approval by many visitors. Moretto S.p.A. constantly maintains its quest for continuous development of new applications and new solutions in the automation of plastics processing.

Latest innovations launched at PLAST ‘09 in world preview were:
- The new KK – KruiseKontrol, an exclusive transport system for plastic granules at constant speed
- The evolution of the Dry Air mini dryer that becomes X Dry Air, adopting the X Dryer technology
- Updating of the DGM gravimetric blender, where the control system has been completely improved by the application of a touch screen interface and new electronics
- The Quad, a new suction unit that permits connection of up to four three-phase hopper loaders.

These technologies will be launched on the Asian market on the occasion of Chinaplas that takes place in May, from 18th to 21st in Guangzhou. A further im-portant occasion for Moretto is the NPE in Chicago, one of the most important exhibitions for the USA market.

The most important news at Plast ’09 was the introduction of KruiseKon-trol, an evolution for solutions to classical problems like angel hair, stress defects due to speed, forming of powder caused by frictions and wear of flexible and rigid pipes. These problems, previously not able to be con-trolled, are eliminated with KruiseKontrol.

KruiseKontrol is a dynamic system, able to manage all the variables in a plastic granule transport system. Plastics are the basic raw materials for injection moulding, extrusion or blow moulding. They are available in granular form of different shapes, dimensions, in addition to bulk density or type. Composition, such a degree of softness in thermoplastics, is an additional raw material feature, such as the material for the rubber in pencils or material with the consistency of a pneumatic tyre.
