Accurate Metering - Precise Control

Flint, MI—The latest addition to Colotronic’s blending and feeding line, the CF-1000 Series Gravimetric Additive Feeder, features a compact feeder that provides accurate metering of additives as well as material usage tracking, which can be utilized in all molding and extrusion applications for pelletized materials.

The CF-1000 adds colorant or other free-flowing material to your process, based on a self-calibrating gravimetric controller. This eliminates the over-feeding that typically accompanies volumetric feeders and make recalibration unnecessary.

Consistent, accurate operation and repeatability, even at low output rates, provide significant savings in additive consumption—offering a quick payback time. There is automatic, self adjustment if there is a deviation from the set additive weight, and automatic calibration makes the xF-1000 series simple and easy to use, and flow rate is calculated in both percentage or kilograms per hour for extruders.

Standard features include: a user-friendly graphic display, integrated TCP/IP cared that enables communication for injection molding models, a 0-10 VDC extruder follower circuit available on extrusion models and an advanced feed-rate algorithm. An integrated automatic venturi loader, along with other side-loading configurations, is optional.

Colortronic North America is an industry leader in feeders and blending systems, and is supported by a dedicated service team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
