Material handling meets circular economy

Motan, Hall 9, Booth C64

Motan is focusing on two topics while at K‘2019: along with the new products Spectroplus, Metroflow, Luxor CA A and the new material loader range Metro SG, the company is also addressing the core topic of this year’s K show – circular economy.

The Spectroplus is a dosing system for all applications in extrusion and compounding. The modular design is suitable for a large range of different materials, from powders, granulates and regrinds to liquids and flakes. The synchronous dosing unit can be augmented with the Spectroflex dosing modules, which are also available as gravimetric or volumetric versions. It is controlled by the new Spectronet control, which can control both dosing modules as well as external dosing units. Metroflow is a gravimetric vacuum conveying system for precise material throughput control.

These gravimetric material loaders are used in pneumatic conveying systems, for example to convey material from a silo to a drying bin or to the processing machine. It is suited for monitoring material consumption in real time, which means that the units are predestined for use in an Industry 4.0 environment.

Luxor CA A, a compressed air dryer for small to medium throughputs with optimised control and integrated ETAplus technology is designed for small to medium material throughputs. The dryer operates in a temperature range from 30- 180 °C. It can be installed directly on top of the processing machine or on a mobile frame. The dryer is available in four sizes with bin volumes of 8, 15, 30 and 60 l respectively.

Motan has reworked and expanded the Metro range of system individual material loaders. The new material loaders Metro G (Granulate) for large material throughputs is now available in three sizes with 60, 100 and 150 l capacities respectively.

As part of the central K’ topic circular economy, Motan is involved in the presentation of a closed material and processing cycle at the KrausMaffei stand (Hall 15, Stand C24) with a drying system incorporating energy saving technology and a new residual moisture sensor, with material loaders, and with a Gravicolor 30 gravimetric dosing and mixing unit. All components within this production cell, including the ancillary equipment provided by motan, are connected via the interface standard OPC-UA with a central data collection point.
