WITTMANN's Aton F70 rescues molders from humidity
The DRYMAX Aton F70 is the WITTMANN's response to a groundswell of enquiries for processing help, particularly from smaller to medium-sized plastics companies and from specialist operations. Larger plastics processors typically address the humidity problem with pre-emptive dehumidifying technology in the outdoor silos and with central drying systems.
The DRYMAX Aton F70 is the smaller, flexible and more mobile solution for beside-thepress operations.
Markus Wolfram, Sales Manager Material Handling, says that WITTMANN is offering customers the advantage of the DRYMAX Aton F70 consisting of:
- The Aton's innovative segment wheel drying technology (with a tower option as alternative)
- A number of energy saving modes, including 3-Save and EcoMode
- Low maintenance (no binding agents) product costs
- Low consumables cost (e.g. desiccant replacement)
A variety of hopper volumes are offered: The DRYMAX Aton F70 is able to dry approximately 40 kg/hr, based on glass filled polyamide. For this throughput range the dryer is available in a mobile version with preferably 150 l, 2x 70 l or 3x 50 l hopper sizes.
To monitor and to run the unit based on the dew point this DRYMAX model optionally includes a dew point sensor with a certificate of calibration. The Aton includes 3-Save process and EcoMode situated at the dryer. The insulated stainless steel drying hoppers are also equipped with the Material-Saver-Function which avoids any thermal damage of the material. The multiple hopper versions are complete with WITTMANN's SmartFlow valve technology.
Wolfram explains that the EcoMode option fitted to the DRYMAX Aton F70 'is a great feature. This mode will help companies to find the right drying operation - and all can be done without any action of the operator.'
Once the EcoMode is activated the dryer automatically selects the most efficient operation mode, Wheel or Tower. During the Wheel-process the Aton segment wheel is moving all the time through a regeneration process phase which guarantees a constant dew point. During the Tower-process the wheel is moving sequentially and reduces the energy consumption. Based on the water load the DRYMAX Aton selects the needed operation process.
Über Wittmann Battenfeld GmbH
WITTMANN worldwide is one of the leading manufacturers of robots and peripheral equipment for the plastics industry. The WITTMANN group with Headquarters in Vienna/Austria is a worldwide operating company with 7 production facilities and 20 branch offices in all major plastics markets in the world. WITTMANN's product range includes robots and automation systems, automatic material handling with dryers and plastic recycling, temperature controllers and chillers for machine tools and volumetric and gravimetric blenders.
With this comprehensive range of peripheral equipment, WITTMANN can provide processors of plastics with total solutions which cover all their requirements, ranging from autonomous work cells with single zone temperature controllers, screenless granulators, sprue pickers, integrated vacuum loading systems and integrated cross-linked control systems with integrated material loading and dryers to automated robotic systems for flexible finishing of semi-finished injection molded parts.
On April 1st, 2008 WITTMANN took over the BATTENFELD Kunststoffmaschinen GmbH at Kottingbrunn (Lower Austria). There will continue to be independent growth in the market for auxiliary equipment on one hand and for injection molding machines by BATTENFELD on the other. However, the syndication will lead to connectivity between both product lines, providing the advantage plastics processors have been looking for in terms of a seamless combination of processing machines, automation and auxiliary equipment - all occurring at a progressive rate.
