GDS loss-in-weight gravimetric dosing units are designed to dose up to 7 materials for extrusion and co-extrusion processes, for a maximum production up to 500 kg/h (depending on the material density).
These machines feature a high reliability and dosing precision, also with materials in small quantities. GDS units are modular and eventually allow easy upgrades to include additional components in the extrusion process.
Each component weighing station is equipped with a weighed hopper which receives the plastic material above through a pneumatically controlled shutter. The state-of-the-art technology allows precise measurement of the material batch even in extreme environmental conditions. The feeding of the component to be dosed is carried out by means of a hopper loader together with a reserve hopper, all placed above the GDS dosing unit (directly on it or on a mezzanine).
There are different combinations of sleeve/auger for various application needs, ensuring the optimal use of the dosing station. A complete program for hopper loaders is available.
