Automatic Melt Indexer

Automatic Melt Indexer MI-Robo 89.16

The MI ROBO 89.16 Automatic Melt Indexer from GOTTFERT automates the whole melt flow rate testing process. From sample loading to cleaning to changing the die, everything is done automatically according to ISO 1133 and ASTM D1238 standards.

    • Inlet version for sticky materials
    • Automatic sampler loading
    • Magazine heating
    • Sample magazine heatable and extension of a nitrogen purge possible

    • Integrated sample magazine for 30 or 45 single tests, to fill with plastic granules, powder etc
    • Electric linear drive for weight handling system with permanent position control (0,02mm). So the pre-loading, pre-heating and feeding positions for each test are free definable via parameter. No more sensors must be adjusted.
    • Time saving force controlled pre-loading and ejection of the test material via drive and test weights (up to 60 kg) especially when testing viscous materials. Therefore the force can be defined stepless.
    • Reduced air consumption (< 5 m³/h, only 30% of consumption of the former model 89.07) because of low-noise electric drives
    • Positioning of all cleaning tools with one single linear drive. Each cleaning tool operates via force control to get an optimum of pressing force
    • Completely integrated cleaning cloth feeding inside the device and comfortable exchange of the cloth roll at the front side of the device.
    • Piston cleaning unit moves faster and more reliable via electric positioning instead of pneumatic cylinder
    • Cleaning module, with or without die cleaning (necessary option). The unit can now be equipped with fully automatic die cleaning
