Colortronic North America Inc. of Runnemede, N.J., introduced the MA series of auger-fed granulators, as part of a 10-granulator expansion to its product line.
The auger-fed machines feature a low-profile design, with a screen drawer and hinged lid for easy access to the chamber for quick clean out. A slant-chamber design gives tangential feed from three-plate molds, robots and sprue pickers or parts separators.
Three models are available — the MA68, MA 812 and MA 1216, featuring throat sizes, respectively, of 6 by 8 inches, 8 by 12 inches and 12 by 16 inches.
The MA Series reverses the flight of the continuously welded auger screw, preventing runners from wrapping around before they enter the cutting chamber.
Other features include a reversing drum switch, a gear reducer and chain/sprocket auger drive.
