WXB Blender for Extrusion

Integrated Blending & Extrusion Control

  • Maguire’s proven WXB Gravimetric batch blending technology combined with comprehensive loss-in-weight control.
  • Batch blending from 2 - 12 materials with dispense accuracy of +/- 0.1% on a 1% setting.
  • Integrated Loss-in-Weight control monitoring live consumption rate to an extruder and updating process rate every second.

Maguire + Syncro Syntrol Control

  • Maguire + Syncro specialist extrusion control for every type of extrusion process.
  • Syntrol touchscreen allows quick and easy setup of extrusion process. 
  • Easily set process parameters like gram/meter, micron and layer ratios.

Key Benefits of Extrusion Control

  • Overall raw materials savings of up to 10% compared to manual regulation. 
  • Reduced start-up material wastage & changeover scrap.
  • Achieve faster startup times.
  • Automatically regulate extruder and haul-off speeds to always be on target.
  • Eliminate process variations due to screen pack, voltage fluctuations and MFI differences.
  • Document clearly materials usage and process parameters for quality, process and cost control.
  • Return on investment within 6 months. 
  • Fast payback by reduced material usage, production scrap, manual intervention and increased productivity.
  • Optimize process from constant extrusion control.

Solutions for Every Extrusion Process

Solutions for Extrusion Processes

  • Suited to continuous extrusion processes for mono and co-extrusion processes.
  • Applications include cable, cast film, blown film, sheet, pipe, tube & profile extrusion.

Maguire+Syncro Control Flexibility

  • Detailed control of all materials settings, layer ratio control, & extrusion control.
  • Controller allows effective control for mono and co-ex processes, managed from 1 HMI.

Expandable & Modular

  • The WXB control is expandable and can be simply integrated with further downstream controls for automatic gauging and process control.
  • WXB extrusion control module can easily be retrofitted with other modular components from Maguire + Syncro including air rings, IBC control, Gauging, and in-line recycling.

WXB Blender at a Glance

1. Integrated Loss-in-Weight

The WXB mix chamber is a combined Loss-in Weight hopper which provides live lb/hr (kg/hr) data updated every second.

3. Up to 10% Material Cost Reduction

Up to 10% material cost reduction from automatic gram/meter / micron regulation, quicker start-up and reduced start-up material scrap.

5. Modular Upgrades

Control integrates to allow modular upgrades for air rings, IBC, gauging and a wide range of downstream controls to optimize multiple extrusion processes.
