Automatic Closed Loop Color Control
Available from Plastore Inc
Optimize operator efficiency while ensuring consistent color quality throughout a production run with this PLC-based Closed-Loop Color Control system.
The system uses colorimetric data from a in-line color spectrophotometer to control the feeder rate, automatically adjusting material flow to maintain preset color tolerances. It also adjusts for bulk density variations of color concentrates and color variations caused by embossing patterns and can be run in concert with gravimetric systems that control virgin, regrind and other additives.
The system ensures consistent color quality throughout a production run, freeing operators to focus on additional value-added activities while minimizing scrap and product recalls
