Piovan, which has always been committed to the development of integrated solutions for the plastics industry, has also established new standards in the extrusion industry thanks to the Quantum E series. With a view to continuous improvement, Piovan’s goal is to produce dosing machines and technologies that are remarkably efficient, especially in terms of energy use, increasingly reliable, easy-to manage and maintain, ready for the smart factories of Industry 4.0.
From raw material management to production and logistics, industrial systems need to adapt to constantly changing demand and this requires fl exibility, adaptability and performance continuity. This is why the various equipment used needs advanced and constant controls throughout the process, able to communicate with each other and with external systems thanks to open and customizable communication protocols. With the Quantum E dosing system, Piovan improves both the effectiveness of the production processes and the product thanks to the high technological content of the new dosing systems, which ensure maximum precision in pellet dosing and total processing control.
Quantum E is the new gravimetric batch dosing unit with continuous extrusion control that completes the Quantum series of next-generation dosing units introduced on the market in 2015. With this innovative design, Piovan combines, in a single high precision system, both gravimetric dosage versatility and the accuracy of the continuous loss-in-weight system.
