Control systems

Polymer Handling

Automation systems to simplify operation, control, adjustment and monitoring of the operating parameters, resulting in increased process and operational reliability of the entire system.
Control systems for extrusion and compounding systems with melt pumps and melt filters.

The use of control systems

Central operation, optimized control and continuous monitoring ensure a considerable improvement in the quality of your end-product.

The maax® automation systems by MAAG guarantee optimal protection and operation of extrusion gear pump systems, melt pump systems and screen changers.

Solutions vary from automation to integration of melt pumps and screen changers into the extrusion line, upgrading coextrusion lines up to equipping complete and complex extrusion and compounding plants in the polymer extrusion industry.
