    • The Plastometer from PCE Instruments is used for fast testing of the melt mass flow rate of plastics. The plastometer is suitable for incoming inspection as well as for production monitoring. Due to the clear presentation of all relevant parameters on the display, the results of the melt index test can be displayed in a short time with the help of the plastometer. Plastometer application in the plastics industries.The automatic cutting function increases the reproducibility of the melt flow index test.
    • Stored standard plastics save the user of the plastometer configuration procedures. The stored plastics include Polystyrene (PS), Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE), ABS, Polycarbonate (PC), Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), POM, MABS, SAN, E/VAC, and others. In addition to the already integrated standard plastics, the test temperatures and test weights according to the standard (ISO 1133) are stored in the plastometer. Plastics with material-specific parameters that are not stored can be permanently added and saved in the plastometer as required.
    • The PCE-MFI 400 plastometer from PCE Instruments is therefore a suitable instrument for determining the melt mass flow rate for a wide range of thermoplastics. In this way, important parameters for subsequent production can be determined and adjusted prior to manufacture. In this way, the plastometer ensures sustainable quality improvements in the production process, reduces rejects, and thus contributes to a sustainable cost reduction.
