Plastrac puts you in total (touchscreen) control. Easy does it blending. Now. And down the road. 610-356-3000 • Plastrac.com Our new touchscreen controller, optional on all our blenders, puts complete, intuitive process management at your fingertips. Set-up parameters are viewable during operation and stored auto- matically. There is a non-volatile shot counter. A thumb drive enables easy software updates and transfer of the recipe files. A full keyboard enables easy entry of all recipe and component names. All events and alarms are captured with both a real time and a day stamp. In other words, everything you always wanted to know about blending in a single panel. The perfect blend. Every time. 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 blend- er). Harried processors can hurry up color changes by swapping top castings without any need for cable removal. Plastrac designs and builds blenders 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.
