Moretto champions Industry 4.0 for drying

News 19.08.2016

At this year’s show the Italian company will present several exclusive solutions: MOISTURE METER, a resin moisture analyser; XD 10, a high performance mini-dryer; DGM, a continuous batch gravimetric dosing unit; and EXA, a conveying system for up to six stations.

MOISTURE METER

MOISTURE METER

MOISTURE METER is an in-line resin moisture analyser. At Moretto’s booth there will be a working display of the system installed on a running injection moulding machine producing a standard medical device. The MOISTURE METER project was started at Moretto six years ago and is the culmination of the cooperation of two universities and an independent research laboratory. Trial applications, at Moretto customer sites, have been running for over one year and have contributed to continued product development. Today, MOISTURE METER is ready for wide sale distribution and K will be an opportunity to announce it’s global availability.

 

With this instrument it is possible to certify the production of plastic parts and when installed directly on the processing machine, measures the actual moisture content of the plastic granules. No calibration is required and it is only necessary to select the polymer, from an included materials database, to be treated and MOISTURE METER will continuously control the process with sampling every 10 seconds. MOISTURE METER represents the missing link in the overall drying process.  With so much energy focused on talking about dryers, their efficiency, the dew point, etc. everyone has ignored the principle objective of regulating how much water remains in the process resin. With MOISTURE METER, now we know.

Complementing this innovative instrument is also the availability for on-demand analysis to produce reports on production data by hour, minute, or, in the case of single cavity mould production, a report for every printed piece.

The instrument comes equipped with Ethernet, USB, RS485 communication ports and is compatible with the Moretto Mowis supervising system. With the MOISTURE METER PLUS upgrade it is also possible to control the dryer performance by comparing the humidity from the initial part of the process to the end and automatically adjusting the dryer parameters to ensure optimal drying. This concept creates a closed loop connecting the material, dryer, process quality, and plastic processing machine and resulting in a condition that leads straight towards Industry 4.0.

XD10 MINI-DRYER

XD10

Moretto has one of the broadest ranges of dryers available on the market and, considering the XMAX range, also the largest constant performance drying systems. Now the company, with over 10,000 Dry-Air mini-dryers sold, is expanding the number of these machines equipped with a mini turbocharger and zeolite technology. Similar to XMAX the XD10 mini-dryer, has an included turbocharger, developed in-house, capable of generating the required air flow with a consumption of only 60 Watts. This product guarantees consistent performance and is equipped with industry-leading features including: dew point equaliser; variable adaptive airflow; double turbine (process and regeneration); and a colour touch view control. The XD10 mini-dryer represents a high performance mini-dryer suitable for low production and processing of techno-polymers.

 

GRAVIMETRIC CONTINUOUS BATCH

16 years since the first DGM gravimetric dosing units were produced, Moretto has a new innovation to unveil. With more than 12,000 machines sold worldwide several new systems have been implemented to make the machine even more functional and precise. The beating heart of these systems, the traditional double eyelid shutter, is unchanged, producing a batch every 25 milliseconds, which is 10 times faster than the most accredited competitors.

EXA

DGM has a renewed chassis design and the machine has four opening sides, featuring four transparent panels that provide unique visibility to the dosing process. The internal parts of the machine are illuminated with multicolor LED lighting with four different colours to signal the machine operating status. The inclined mixer offers precision mixing and emptying without stagnation. In addition, the mixer is weighed on a double load cell to ensure precise weighing and with the included totaliser function the possibility to report the actual consumption. This feature also allows for real-time indication of material consumption and transformation. With these innovations the Moretto DGM series of dosing units are ready to accept the most intensive applications.

EXA which is derived from the Greek letter 'exi', is a conveying system capable of managing up to six receivers. It does not require a server and it maintains all the ONE WIRE 3 centralised system functions.

At the Moretto booth visitors will also be able to explore technologies including the innovative XMAX modular dryer, the CROWN totaliser, the high energy OTX hopper, the wireless ONE WIRE 6 automatic conveying system, the MASTER 300 touch control for centralised conveying systems, the KRYSTAL DVK master volumetric dosing unit and the TWP S pressurised water temperature controller.

Outside the cavernous K Show halls, it will be possible to visit Moretto’s 40-tonne articulated lorry, Moretto in Motion, a laboratory of ideas which contain the latest news and innovations from Moretto. This exclusive area is dedicated to the most demanding customers who will be hosted by Moretto staff and have the pleasure of an espresso, a beer or even an Italian prosecco. Saluti!
