Back to basics helps save time, money

A long-term cooperation between this extruder manufacturer and Resotec GmbH has resulted in a new product, the MacromateXX Basic control. With 19 heating/cooling zones, melt-temperature measurement, four adjustable drives for the extruder, side feeder, dosing units and pelletizer, this unit combines a solid amount of equipment into a small, inexpensive extrusion line. A microprocessor control is available for the extrusion line that has many features and enables combined operation by means of a touch panel and pivoted pulse generators. For example, the drive values are entered by simply turning the knobs on the pivoted pulse generators. Data transfer with other computers can be done via USB and optionally by LAN.
