-Movacolor launches unique configuration wizard for controller

Movacolor has made the configuration of a gravimetric feeder and optometric feeder even easier by adding a unique configuration wizard to the Movacolor Touch Screen Controller software.

The wizard guides the user through the configuration process of the software step by step so that they don’t forget to configure loaders, select the right dosing tool, or perform the initial loadcell calibration.

Movacolor controllers are always delivered preconfigured, plug and play out of the box. With Movacolor’s modular dosing equipment (building blocks) the user can combine the different dosing systems themselves, configuring their own gravimetric dosing or optometric dosing system. That, Movacolor asserts, is exactly where the configuration wizard will be a big benefit.

-WACKER puts the ‘yes’ into biopolyesters

Which qualities does the VINNEX additive possess that perhaps many of its bio-based predecessors do not?

VINNEX is an additive system for the formulation of bioplastics. By using the product, biopolyesters processing and property profile can be optimally adjusted.

Another benefit is that VINNEX enables the various biopolyesters to be combined with each other and with starch, which substantially increases the range of applications and processing options of biopolyesters.Petrochemicals Graphene BioPackaging 

Consequently, WACKER’s additives contribute to opening up new markets for bioplastics.

-Sesotec publishes booklet on plastic recycling

German sorting equipment firm’s e-publication can be requested via its website.

Schönberg, Germany-based sorting equipment and technology firm Sesotec has published what it calls an e-book titled “Driving impact – closing the plastic cycle.” The company says the book includes comments from its own staff members and other contributors describing the “challenges and requirements a circular economy involves for recyclers, plastics producers and plastics processors.”  Petrochemicals Graphene BioPackaging 

“In our times, as plastic waste is widely discussed and is a burning issue, one of the main problems is that too little plastic waste is recycled, [and] that an extremely high resource potential is thus wasted, and that this creates environmental risks,” Sesotec states in a news release announcing the availability of the publication.
