Plastrac puts you in total (touchscreen) control. The perfect blend. Every time. 610-356-3000 • Visit us in WEST HALL 2 BOOTH #W129 Our new touchscreen controller, optional on all our blenders, puts complete, intuitive process manage- ment at your fingertips. Set-up parameters are viewable during operation and stored automatically. There is a non-volatile shot counter. A thumb drive enables easy software updates and transfer of the recipe filter. The controller is smart enough to detect cable and motor shorts, excess motor current, and time and day stamp alarm and event history. There's even a pulse tach version for quicker response to changes. In other words, everything you always wanted to know about blending in a single panel. On the fly Color Changes. PDQ. There are a lot of features that distinguish a Plastrac blender, but none greater than the ability to change colors as often and as quickly as customer orders demand it. The secret is our level-sensing vane switch (standard on every single blender). Harried processors can hurry up color changes by swapping top castings without any need for cable removal. Plastrac designs and builds blend- ers to uncomplicate life for our customers. They are simple to set up. Simple to operate. Simple to adapt in the field. Simple to expand in the future. Let's say you buy a two-component (color + additive) system now, but a few years later, you need to make it a multi-component system. Plastrac blenders are all entirely modular, so you won't be locked into the original configuration if your needs change or grow. What's more, all our parts, mechanical and electronic, are always well stocked, because we don't think your present or future operations should include downtime. Easy does it blending. Now. And down the road.
