Plastic processors who meter pre-blended or single-component materials directly into their processing machines can now control consumption and monitor throughput with a dispensing unit small enough for mounting at the extruder throat. The new WST 110 model is an addition to the Maguire Weigh Scale Totalizer line of machines, which functions exactly like Maguire’s gravimetric weigh scale blenders, utilizes the same control software, and provides the same high level of dosing precision, according to B. Patrick Smith, vice president of marketing and sales. By combining small unit size and dispensing precision, the WST 110 machine enables processors running single-component or pre-blended materials to take advantage of the Maguire Extrusion Control Network, which is based on the proprietary software embedded in the company’s weigh scale blenders, Smith said.
