ColourMate precision additive/color concentrate feeders, designed  & manufactured by scpecialists for efficient, accurate metering directly into the throat of extruders, injection machines & blow moulders.


Control - For accuracy and repeatability.

   The ColourMate control panel is activated by the screw recovery signal on injection or lowmolding machines or the screw R.P.M. on extrusion lines. The standard Thyrister control panel can be remotely mounted and has fine adjustments for acceleration, decceleration, maximum and minimum speeds, current limiting (torque) and I.R. compensation. An isolated signal follower panel is also available. this panel electronically slaves the ColourMate feeder with the processing machine, allowing the actual  speed of the extruder screw to control the feeder's output. Optional inductive and volt metering tachometers along with the special speed control potentiometers are also availbale to complete your control requirements.

From the many gearmotors availbale, we have chosen a most durable and maintenance free 1/8 H.P. motor to power our ColourMate feeder. Matched with the control systems we have developed, a perfectly tuned system is completed which offers extreme oveall accuracy, unique reulating /controlling linearity and above all, repeatability.

     Colour Changes.

ColourMate additive feeders are designed for the practical processor who requires a unit which is reliable, accurate and affords quick and easy colour changes. ColourMate's hopper features an integral material shut-off gate and single hold down know which assist in the achievement of quick and simple colour changes. The operator needs only close this slide shut-off gate and loosen the hold down knob and the supply hopper can be lifted away with all its contents. This feature, along with the swing away motor allows easy access to ColourMate's exclusive integral auger/barrel cartridge which may be removed, as a unit, for easy cleaning and quick alignment. Thus, the ColourMate additive feeder is also ideal for reintroducing certain reground plastics. Colour changes don't have to take all day. With the ColourMate feeder, you can be back in business, making a different coloured part within minutes.
