Material savings in pipe, cable, film and profile extrusion
The recipe for success: Mass instead of volume :
The same volume does not represent the same mass this principle is the starting point for modern gravimetric systems. iNOEX sets a consequent focus on material weight as the unit of measure.
Funnel weigher The funnel weigher is mounted directly on top of the extruder opening or the starved feeding screw. Depending on the control loop, either the screw speed or the haul-off speed can be controlled based on the measuring data collected by the funnel weigher. The result is a stable production process with constant mass throughput rates and a constant weight per metre besides a minimisation of consumed material.
