Steve Maguire founded Maguire Products in 1977.

With six facilities located in Aston, Maguire Products – the global technology leader in material management systems for plastics molding, extrusion, and compounding – will soon introduce a new-generation controller in Germany.

The company has developed the product, which has much more processing capability than the previous controller, for its widely used gravimetric blender, writes Bill Bregar for Plastics News.

Maguire will introduce the controller at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany, as part of the celebration of the sale of its 50,000th Maguire Weigh Scale Blender.

Options for the product include a keypad/digital thumbwheel interface or a new touchscreen that can be removed for remote operation.

Standard with the touchscreen is built-in software for a conveying system for loading multiple materials into a blender, and metering the combined materials into a processing machine.

“The vastly enhanced operation of the new controller will include the volume, speed, and reliability of data transfer,” said Frank Kavanagh, vice president of sales at Maguire.

“This means that valuable information on the makeup and consumption of the raw materials being metered into the molding or extrusion process can be readily shared with third-party devices via any standard communications protocol, making it possible to integrate Maguire blenders with today’s most advanced technologies.”
