PLASTRON 05 K – Metal separator for installation on injection molding machines or extruders



Metal separation on the machine intake. The last chance becomes the first choice.

The Plastron 05 K is a new metal separator from MESUTRONIC. It was developed for the examination of plastic granulates, ground material and powders for metallic foreign bodies. It thus completes the company’s extensive range of products for injection moulding and extrusion for the application case of slow-flowing material columns. It is installed directly between feed systems such as hopper loader or mixer and the plastification unit.

Particular consideration was given to the temperature stability and detection accuracy of the detection coil. This was achieved through the use of precision milled parts and a winding support made of modern composite material.

The ejection unit impresses with absolutely reliable ejections of both bridge-forming and slumping or free-falling materials. It can also be dismantled for cleaning in a matter of seconds without tools.

The high-quality AMD 05 functions as the evaluation electronics. Apart from excellent immunity to interference, this also offers ideal communication options in the sense of digitalization.

This combination of innovation and reliability results in top performance data for precision, operating reliability and ease of cleaning. Even in the basic version the system can be used for material temperatures up to 120 °C. This offers considerably greater flexibility with the increasing use of pre-dried granulate.

MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH has been producing innovative metal detection technology for the plastics industry for over 25 years. Customers all over the world are supplied with metal detectors and separators from the company’s headquarters in Kirchberg im Wald.

Mesutronic at the K 2016 in Düsseldorf

Kirchberg im Wald. The K trade fair opens its gates once again in Düsseldorf on Wednesday, 19 October 2016. The trade fair is the absolute highlight in the industry and the starting point for trendsetting decisions for process, product and problem solutions in plastics processing.

We interviewed our product manager Jörg Pattberg about this industry highlight:

Mr Pattberg, how important is the plastics market to MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH?

 JP: The plastics industry is one of our most important business segments. The roots of Mesutronic, which was founded nearly 25 years ago, lie here. Over the years both our portfolio and our network of technicians and sales specialists has grown continuously. Our high presence at the most renowned plant manufacturers and end customers in this sector proves it. And we will, of course, continue to focus on this market in future.

For product manager Jörg Pattberg is the plastics industry one of the main business segments of the MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH.

How important is the K trade fair to Mesutronic?

 JP: To be internationally successful in the plastics industry we have to be present for our customers. Direct contact is very important to us. The K trade fair is a good place, not only to meet our customers en masse, but also to generate new contacts and to show them our proven metal detection technology. Our presence began here in the founding years and we will continue in future to be present for our customers and joint exhibitors within the framework of the trade fair.

What are you expecting from the K trade fair?

 JP: Business transactions at trade fairs have receded more and more into the background in recent years, so we are focusing on communication and customer ties. That is also reflected by our new booth concept, which backs off a little from pure presentation. We see ourselves as partners and want to convey inclusion and enjoyment in contact at every level.

Mesutronic stands for innovative devices; what are Mesutronic’s plans with regard to the plastics industry? How do you stand with regard to Industry 4.0?

 JP: A very interesting development project for the plastics sector is currently in progress in the company. No further details will be available until the end of next year, however. Industry 4.0 is not a new topic for us. We made provision more than 10 years ago for the simple linking of our machines to higher-level systems, both for data acquisition and for external control options. The most diverse communication methods are available to the customer today. That’s why we see many opportunities here and consider ourselves to be ideally prepared.

Our exhibition team is looking forward to present reliable metal surch technology on the new Booth.

The detection of metal contaminants in plastic parts for the protection of production systems is also a major topic in the plastics industry. MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH is a specialist in this area. The manufacturer of metal detectors and separators from Lower Bavaria will present its innovative metal detection technology in Friedrichshafen at its trade fair booth in Hall B1 / Booth 1103.In addition to further metal separators for the freefall and pneumatic conveying of granulates and ground stock, the company will present the QUICKTRON 05 RH for the examination of masterbatches.This system, which originates from the food industry, offers many advantages. Its completely colourless construction, which avoids all discolouration of the granulates, is unique in the entire industry. All plastic parts that come into contact with the product are manufactured in neutral white. Furthermore, the passage is silicone-free and extremely easy to clean without tools. Even in environments with strong interference fields, the patented PowerLine principle offers maximum precision while at the same time also preventing false alarms due to static charging of the granulate.

MESUTRONIC looks forward to welcoming numerous visitors to the FAKUMA in Friedrichshafen and to many interesting contacts and intensive discussions on the subject of “Metal detection –
Made in Germany”.
