Ampacet LIAD product demonstrations

The latest innovations from Ampacet’s LIAD Smart line of feeding, blending, colour measurement and correction equipment will be demonstrated in Hall 11, booth I54.

Ampacet’s LIAD Smart product demonstrations include:

BlendSave: An automated resin blending and management system that simplifies and streamlines workflow processes while facilitating “lights out” operations. BlendSave is the only blending process that creates customised recipes and automatically distributes them without an operator interface and zero cross-contamination.

BlendSave delivers the blending flexibility needed for today’s operations, handling as many as 40 ingredients on up to 50 machines. The modular design manages throughput from 1,500 lbs./hr. to over 8,000 lbs./hr. in a footprint as small as 120 sq. ft.

Spectro 4.0™ Smart Technologies:  Designed for plastic injection moulding, blow moulding and extrusion processesthis patented colour measurement system offers Industry 4.0 innovations, such as in-line colour measuring and correction capabilities to ensure real-time production meets set colour specifications. Fibre optic sensors compare colour data to a preset colour standard throughout the manufacturing process to deliver consistent and accurate colour monitoring and colour correction in real-time without interrupting production or creating delays by collecting samples to test. This precise, highly QA solution allows manufacturers to maintain uniform colour standards in-house and with contract processors worldwide.
