AZO’s product range:
The MIXOMAT is particularly well suited to discontinuous, gravimetric loading as well as to mixing and dyeing of granulate exactly as specified in the recipe, with masterbatch, re-work, pigments and additives. It can be used for medium to high throughputs values when loading compounding systems, blowing machines and foil lines. Combining the process stages of transporting, dosing, weighing and mixing in one device achieves an exemplary level of efficiency.
The AZODOS® dosing unit, type P … DV for volumetric dosing of powder products into weighing and production processes. The unit can be used in the food industry as well as in the pharmaceutical, chemical and plastics industries wherever production processes require coarse/fine flow at a uniform mass flow rate. In connection with a weighing device, the unit can be built up to the AZODOS® type P... DW dosing system for gravimetric product feed to production processes.
AZO big bag discharge stations make it possible to discharge big bags with low dust and to feed products reliably into the closed production plant. To improve efficiency and reduce costs even further, AZO has developed a modular concept for a big bag discharge station. The required components such as frame, traverse, chain hoist, discharging aids, etc. can be chosen from a “construction set”, depending on the requirements which has a very positive effect on the price and delivery time.
The AZO COMPONENTER® Step makes it possible to weigh minor and micro components automatically with gram accuracy, such as pigments, colourings, flavouring agents, additives, active agents and numerous other micro quantities. The system improves product safety while simultaneously boosting production efficiency by reducing individual manual production steps to a minimum. It can be used in the food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and plastics industries.
The target containers are positioned below the dosing points using a pneumatic drive. After the product is dosed with the quantity determined in the recipe, the target container is transported one step forward to the next dosing point. Dosing screws combined with vibration bottoms underneath the raw material storage ensure accurate metering of components being handled. Once all components are in the target container in accordance with the recipe, it is unloaded at the end of the metering line and is ready for the next process.
