Interchangeable hoppers and dispensing devices provide unlimited flexibility

Modular Flexible Design

A single MaxiBatch™ blender utilizes a variety of proprietary dispense methods to enable accurate blending of up to 12 ingredients as either a major or minor component.

The MaxiBatch™ blender accommodates twelve removable hoppers for as many ingredients, each hopper incorporates its own dispensing device designed for precise metering in large quantities.

As in other Maguire weigh blenders, ingredients are dispensed sequentially into a weigh chamber; the batch then falls into a mixing chamber.
A variety of proprietary, interchangeable dispense devices and bin sizes allows the MaxiBatch™ to be customized for your application.

Advanced Color Touch Screen Control Option

All the features of the 12-12 controller plus the ease of touch screen navigation. This optional control includes an intuitive, user-friendly touch screen and Ethernet connectivity. Unique onboard wireless capability eliminates the cost of installing cable throughout the production area and readily links to other wireless equipped machines.

Gravimetric Gateway™ Server (G2 Server)

The Gravimetric Gateway™ Server also referred to as the G2 Server, is the name we give to the server software written exclusively for the MAGUIRE Weigh Scale Blenders. The G2 Server enables you to communicate directly from the server with one or more WSB controllers or connect remotely from anywhere over a TCP/IP network using the Gravimetric Gateway™ Client Software. The Gravimetric Gateway™ Server provides two-way communication between the server and the MLAN network of blenders through downloading and constant retrieval of information from WSB controllers. The Gravimetric Gateway™ software was designed to work as a stand-alone application to provide enhanced reports and control. The Gravimetric Gateway™ software has the ability to use MySQL for it's databases.
