Colortronic North America merges with AEC

Article-Colortronic North America merges with AEC

Auxiliary equipment supplier Colortronic North America is being absorbed by the AEC brand of auxiliary equipment.

"Colortronic North America has a strong market presence in blending and feeding equipment, but is not well known in the remainder of the auxiliary equipment product lines," according to a statement from AEC. The company said that this move will strengthen the AEC blending and feeding product offering, and eliminate confusion between the two brands in the marketplace.

AEC carries a full line of feeding and blending products for the plastics and other markets. For example:

  • AEC already offers the "DD" series digital doser which is the same as, and will replace, the Colorblend that was sold by Colortronic.
  • AEC offers the AccuMeter feeding and blending system which replaces the Graviblend and GraviPlus systems that were sold by Colortronic. The AccuMeter system offers full blending and feeding capability at a lower cost than the Colortronic systems it replaces. 

In addition to blending and feeding systems, AEC designs and produces a full line of auxiliary equipment including material handling, drying, process cooling, temperature control and size reduction.
