TrueWeigh Control (TWC)

TrueWeigh Control (TWC)
Extrusion Control

TrueWeigh™ Gravimetric Control System allows extrusion processors to put their equipment on "cruise control." It tracks material being fed to the extruder and automatically adjusts screw rpm and the haul-off device to maintain a consistent product output regardless of changes in raw materials, ambient conditions or processing variables.

The system offers functionality that suits both mono-layer and co-extrusion applications in film, sheet, extrusion coating, pipe, profile, tubing and wire & cable extrusion.

  • Tightens tolerances, saves material costs
  • Easy-to-use, intuitive touch screen
  • Quality maintained during transitions
