Ampacet LIAD product demonstrations

The latest innovations from Ampacet’s LIAD Smart line of feeding, blending, color 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 customized 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 molding, blow molding and extrusion processes, this patented color measurement system offers Industry 4.0 innovations, such as in-line color measuring and correction capabilities to ensure real-time production meets set color specifications. Fiber optic sensors compare color data to a preset color standard throughout the manufacturing process to deliver consistent and accurate color monitoring and color correction in real time without interrupting production or creating delays by collecting samples to test. This highly accurate QA solution allows manufacturers to maintain uniform color standards both in-house and with contract processors around the world.
