MORETTO has launched GRAMIXO, the newest dosing system specifically designed for loss-in-weight extruder feeding control. GRAMIXO, together with GRAVIX and the other loss-in-weight dosing systems, adds a new milestone to the Moretto’s DOSING 4.0 project: machines designed not only to dose but able to interchange data with the ability to be networked, manage machine parameter remotely, run statistics on production, consumption and costs.

Thanks to the free weighing hopper, the system is able to dose up to six components creating an accurate blend. The VIS (Vibration Immunity System) allows the installation of GRAMIXO directly on the processing machine ensuring an extremely accurate weighing up to 0.01%.

DBK GRAMIXO is equipped with a loss-in-weight extruder feeding control, which further ensures a consistent weight per meter ratio. Dosing precision is guaranteed with the inclusion of a double weighing cell which further controls the material loss in the mixer, and allows the extruder to work in accordance with operation parameters.

The ‘totalizer’ function allows the collection of information about consumption, production and material in stock.

The new GRAMIXO is equipped with a double eyelid shutter device with a reaction time of only 25 milliseconds and 0.01% dosing accuracy. Moretto’s patented Rotopulse allows the operator to control and dose minimal batches up to 0,08g.

The machine has three opening sides, featuring three transparent panels that provide unique visibility to the dosing process and simplify cleaning and inspection activities. The internal parts of the machine are illuminated with multicolor LED lighting with four different colours to signal the machine operating status. Easy production changes are guaranteed ‘on the go’ thanks to the quick hopper emptying system.

The removable mixing chamber is inclined, providing a perfect mixing, without stagnation, and total emptying. It enables quick and easy cleaning. The machine features a stainless steel construction that makes it robust and suitable for medical, optical and food industry sectors.

GRAMIXO includes multiple connectivity options: USB, Ethernet, RS485, MOWIS ready (Moretto supervising system). It is equipped, as standard, with an advanced colour touch-view control and easy programming interface.

DBK GRAMIXO is available in different versions for different sectors applications:

-               Medical specific for clean rooms

-               Flakes for the treatment of scales and/or regrind material

-               High temperature for the treatment of materials with temperatures up to 200°C

-               Powder for the treatment of powder and talc

-               Micro-dosing for the treatment of micromaster with whisper colour

-               Corrosion-proof for the treatment of corrosive materials

-               Moretto is represented by DemaPlasTech Machinery (Pty) Ltd in South Africa
