Mixer Advanced Control Packages for Rubber or Silicone

TMP Techni-Mix Advanced Controls For Intensive Mixers

  • For Use with Any Mixer Brand or Size
  • Modern, Friendly Operator Control Station
  • Data Storage at Mixer or through Network
  • Integration of All Mixing Components

The Techni-Mix Mixer Control System is designed to operate any intensive mixer used for rubber or silicone compounding. The system provides an advanced means of developing, analyzing and storing compound mixing procedures. It provides for documentation of the various process parameters for each mixing sequence, documentation of changes made to the mixing procedure by the operator, and production history and analysis. Packages are available for both Tilt and drop door style mixers as well as for incorporating upstream ingredient weigh stations or downstream mill and take-away processes.
