Automatic Speed Control
Using digital input, the
microprocessor detects and automatically compensates for changing cycle
times, varying torque requirements, and/or fluctuations in plant voltage.
This eliminates the need for monitoring and adjustment. As an option, the
controller may be remotely positioned up to 20 ft. from the processing
of 1/2" and 1" are available with a selection of variable-speed motors
ranging to a maximum of 130 RPM. Your part weight or maximum extrusion
rate will determine the proper combination for your application.
Profile Adaptor Frame
The 10" square adaptor frame
with corner support angle iron provides a stable platform for your
existing natural material hopper, while only raising it 3-1/2 inches. A
wide range of bolt patterns can be accommodated. An 8"x8" pattern is
standard to match other items manufactured by Maguire Products.
Stainless Steel Hopper
The concentrate hopper
rests securely in a support channel without utilizing bolts or fasteners.
To change colors, the entire assembly (including hopper, auger tube,
is easily removed by the operator and carried back to the color container.
No pellets are left to contaminate your next color, and not one pellet is
spilled. all stainless steel construction assures ease of cleanup. The 0.5
cu. ft. hopper holds up to 30 pounds of concentrate and
four sight glasses provide a clear view of the color level. The lid is
fitted to allow the addition of our Model ML color loader.
Flow Baffle Chamber
Shown is the Maguire "material
flow baffle chamber" on Series MCF feeders.
The stainless steel sides are formed to produce a baffled flow of resin
such that the color pellets are dropped into and evenly distributed
throughout the flow of natural material. Acrylic panels provide a clear
view of the resin and color flow.
A simple but very effective
slide bar prevents pellets from spilling from the auger tube
when the hopper is removed for color changes. This bar slides forward when
the drive unit is engaged, allowing pellets to dispense properly. During
hopper removal, the bar slides back to cover the open end of the auger tube.
