Quantum gravimetric batch blender

High precision gravimetric blenders

Quantum embodies innovations that radically change the way injection moulding machines and extruders are fed with blends of materials (virgin, recycled, masterbatch and additives). These innovations contribute to increasing the efficiency of production, and feature improved design, innovative technologies and high performance components, which translate into real advantages for the customer.
Quantum is utilised in all application environments such as PET Preforms & Bottles, Rigid Packaging, Automotive Components, Technical Parts, Medical Solutions, Thermoforming & Technical Sheets, Flexible Films, Pipes, Profiles, Cables, Fibres & Strapping, Recycling and Compounds.

Its flexibility derives from two distinctive and unique characteristics:

  • All the surfaces that come into contact with the process material are stainless steel, usable also in the most critical environments, like those found in medical and food & beverage sectors. Low roughness prevents friction and permits uniform treatment of the polymer pellets, preventing the alteration of physical conditions. Quantum therefore protects the physical characteristics of the raw material, and thereby the quality of the plastic product
  • Every blender comes with up to 6 dosing stations, which can easily be removed, for emptying or cleaning. Each dosing station is dedicated to a single ingredient – be it principal or additive; easy removal therefore aids material changes and enables optimal operating conditions to be immediately resumed without contamination from powder or residue. These interventions do not require the blender to be dismantled and can be done manually by an individual operator. The dosing stations can be used across all Quantum blenders in a factory

Integration with Winfactory 4.0:
The control system is designed for integration with Winfactory 4.0, the industrial supervisory software operating by application licence developed by Piovan, the outcome of consolidated knowledge in various application environments. Winfactory 4.0 can interface all Quantum blenders in the factory for: sharing recipes, managing material and production batches, and tracking raw materials; these are fundamental data for product certification, in particular in food & beverage and medical-pharmaceutical environments.

Benefits

  • Immune to vibrations
  • Expandable configuration
  • Portability
  • Quick material change
  • Simplified cleaning operations
  • Perfect homogeneity of the blend
  • For all plastic materials
  • With remote mixer

Quantum E gravimetric batch blender

Gravimetric batch blenders with continuous extrusion control

This innovative dosing system has been developed to ensure high accuracy, versatility and accuracy in extrusion processes, enhancing the advantages of both the gravimetric batch technology and the loss-in-weight systems.

Quantum E allows a versatility of use that has never been achieved before, thanks to 8 dosing stations: each station is added or replaced by a simple mechanical operation without the need for complex manoeuvring and in conditions of complete safety for the operator and for nearby equipment. The Quantum E dosing system has been designed and built in such a way as to allow complete traceability of each component and the repeatability of each cycle, also as a consequence of the new trapezoidal shape of the dosing gate, which allows further precision, with the integration of a rapid unloading device.

The particular design of the patented spherical mixer, with double load cells, prepares a completely homogeneous and precise blend of the various ingredients.

Quantum E is available in three models – QE200QE600QE1200 – with different initial configurations to meet any application field of extrusion and is suitable for both single extrusion and co-extrusion lines.

Advanced control system
The use of Quantum E is simple and intuitive: control is achieved through a latest-generation PLC system, while a new HMI allows the operator to view in real time the running of the process and all the operating parameters for the total extrusion control.

The control interface is available in 11 languages, with a color touch screen panel – 7″ or 15″ – and allows the management of a system from 1 to 11 layers.

Integration with Winfactory 4.0 and TeleService
Quantum E is ready for complete integration with Winfactory 4.0, the new software for production processes monitoring, developed for the Smart Factory of Industry 4.0.

Winfactory 4.0, working with 15-inch touch screen panel, allows complete plant management and accurate measurement of material and energy consumption. Another 4-inch color touch screen is embedded in the blender structure to perform the TeleService function, through Piovan’s remote technical support service.

Exacta

Gravimetric dosing unit for micro-dosing

Exacta GV is the new gravimetric feeder for micro-dosing, equipped with an advance control that allows a complete control of frequency vibrations in order to obtain the exact throughput, while an optimised filtering system identifies and neutralises all the vibrations coming from an external source.

It has a modular construction and each station has an individual control realised with a PLC B&R; the operator interface is a 7” coloured touch panel and an Ethernet port is available for the connection with Winfactory 4.0. The number of parameters that the operator is requested to insert have been minimized in order to make the control as intuitive and user-friendly as possible.

A fully customisable material database is included as standard and so all the dosing parameters specifically defined for each material can be quickly and easily recalled for an immediate startup without risk of scrap.

The new central body is not just a connecting element; it has been designed with an internal diverting element that allows the preliminary test without any waste of masterbatch and is ready to be connected to a cooling water source in case of low melting materials. As an option, an equalisation device is also available to avoid any risk of overpressure, allowing the installation of a drying hopper directly onto the Exacta GV central body. Exacta GV is ready to integrate into in any system, there are in fact two versions available for feeding: with Venturi loader or with a support for the installation of a vacuum receiver.

Benefits

  • Extremely compact for a direct installation on IMM or extruder
  • Cleaning operations are very easy and fast thanks to the full accessibility to the internal elements
  • Can be fully integrated in a centralised vacuum feeding system

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Energetska efikasnost u industriji je pojam koji je na našim prostorima postao bitan krajem 2008. i početkom 2009. godine, sa početkom svetske ekonomske krize. Većina privrednika je, do tada, najčešće deklarativno razmatrala trošak struje, kao bitan element kompletnog pregleda troškova. Pritom uticaj energetske efikasnosti na zagađenje prirode gotovo uopšte nije bio razmatran.

Kompanija Neofyton je među prvima u Srbiji i regionu počela aktivno prezentovanje značaja energetske efikasnosti, kako zbog smanjenja troškova proizvodnje, pa samim tim i povećanja profitne stope, tako i zbog podizanja svesti o ograničenosti resursa i širim ekološkim principima.

Ušteda energije korišćenjem Neofyton mašina

U poređenju sa direktnim konkurentima u sferi mašina za brizganje plastike, a korišćenjem standardne hidraulike u koju su ugrađene tzv. “smart” pumpe, naše mašine troše i do 50% manje energije. Korišćenjem servo-hidraulike, postoji potencijal za uštedu do čak 70%. Posedujemo veoma precizan uređaj za merenje potrošnje električne energije, kojim se to i dokazuje.

Kompanija Engel je bila prvi proizvođač mašina za brizganje plastike, još 2009. godine, koji je u svoj upravljački sklop uveo, kao standardnu opciju, stranicu za prikaz potrošnje struje – “Ecograph”, gde se navođenjem težine za svaki proizvod (kalup), u svim ciklusima dobija podatak, kako o ukupnoj potrošnji struje po satu, tako i o specifičnoj potrošnji struje po kilogramu prerađene plastike (kWh/kg).

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Oprema koju zastupamo doprinosi OČUVANJU ŽIVOTNE SREDINE na nekoliko načina.
Kada govorimo o pratećoj opremi, a pre svega o čilerima za hlađenje vode našeg dobavljača Eurochille, kojima se temperira kako hidraulika i servo motori u mašinama, tako i kalupi (alati) u kojima se i formiraju gotovi proizvodi, čilerski sistemi koje mi prodajemo omogućavaju novi koncept hlađenja korišćenjem tzv. “adijabatskog efekta”.

U letnjem periodu hidraulika i servo motori mašina za brizganje zahtevaju hlađenje vodom temperature do 28°C. Korišćenjem tzv. “free cooling” uređaja sa “adijabatskim efektom”, hlađenje procesne vode se odvija bez korišćenja rashladnih kompresora (koji koriste freone za izmenu toplote). Izmena toplote, tj. hlađenje se odvija isključivo korišćenjem ventilatora, čime se postiže ušteda od 6 do 8 puta u odnosu na klasične čilere koji koriste kompresore sa freonom.

Jedan od naših kupaca je, korišćenjem “adijabatskih” uređaja za hlađenje, umanjio potrebnu količinu električne energije za hlađenje, za 1.400.000 kWh/godišnje, tj. za oko 70.000 EUR. Dodatna prednost je odsustvo rizika, da usled pucanja cevi dođe do curenja freona u atmosferu i velikog zagađenja.

Slična računica se može primeniti na naše Engel mašine za brizganje plastike, kao i na Piovan sušare za sušanje granulata.
