Maguire MicroPlus

Introducing: MicroPlus™ Weigh Scale Blender with pneumatic lift

Maguire MicroPlus

Standard Features

  • EasyFlow corner valve standard on the Natural and Regrind bins
  • Pneumatic vertical pivot valve standard on Color and Additive bins
  • Ideal for small processing machines
  • Reduced weight and footprint
  • Overall precision of ±0.1% of specified blend
  • Compressed air gun for cleanout included
  • Easy access to all material contact surfaces of the machine including hopper, feeder(s), weigh bin, and mixing chamber permits rapid color change without the use of tools
  • Proprietary 12-12 microprocessor-control technology monitors and confirms the weight of each ingredient (touch-screen optional)
  • Compensation is made when a variation in dispense weight is detected
  • Additional standby bins are available which can be preloaded so color change time can be reduced to the few seconds it takes to swap bins
  • Vibration management
  • Improved documentation capabilities

How It Works

All components are blended by weight based on the setting shown on the master controller. Each component is dispensed separately into a single weighing chamber, and then all components are dropped into a continuous mixing chamber which delivers a homogenous blend.

The entire unit is designed to mount over the feed throat of the process machine or on a floor stand. This unique weighing method allows blenders to operate correctly in spite of vibration or shaking caused by the molding machine or extruder.

  • All Materials Metered By Weight
    • Accuracy is constantly monitored.
    • Automatic compensation for material variations.
  • Extreme Accuracy
    • In actual operation, color and additive is held to within 1/10 of 1% of requested ratio.
  • Automatic Recalibration
    • Every batch is followed by an error correction routine that continuously hunts toward perfect dispense weights.
  • Direct Setting of Percentages; No Calculations
    • Enter settings for percentage of color, additive, and regrind on the thumbwheel switches and the system does the rest.
  • Very Simple Operation
    • Load hoppers with material; REGRIND, NATURAL, COLOR, ADDITIVE.
    • Set thumbwheel switches for percentage desired.
    • Turn controller on.
    • The unit now operates automatically, adding components in the proper percentages. If material runs out an alarm will sound.
