You can call it the big brother of the MDM systems or the little sister of the Nodopur systems, whichever you prefer. But of much greater relevance is the fact that with the new MDM plus, TARTLER is now offering a compact system solution for processing small quantities of synthetic resins that is up to par with the large dosing, mixing and application systems of the well-known Nodopur series. That means concretely: Firstly, the new premium model sets itself apart from the smaller table-top and rack-mounted units of the MDM family with a higher output rate of up to 6.5 kg/min, a separate drive for each component, the option of integrated volume flow control and a 7-inch touch panel. At the same time, the MDM plus is extremely space-saving and available at a significantly lower price than a Nodopur system. “The new plant is the optimum choice for synthetic resin processors who process medium quantities and have little floor space available, but still want to benefit from the advantages of cutting-edge process technology in the form of a high-performance compact solution,” says company boss Udo Tartler.
Visually, the new MDM plus stands out by its mobile basic structure with collecting tray, which was primarily reserved for the larger plants of the TARTLER portfolio. In the standard version, the user can choose between tanks with a capacity of 3 to 60 liters. In addition, the plant has a fill level indicator for both components and is equipped with the LC5/3 mixing head from the company’s portfolio. This high-quality mixing head can be fitted with disposable rotating plastic mixers – eliminating the need to use liquid rinsing agents. Other important performance features of the new compact solution from TARTLER are the choice between electric and pneumatic agitators for the components as well as the silica gel filter for the B-component (e.g. hardener).
What’s more, the MDM plus allows users to carry out small circulations of the components. Here, the unmixed material is moved in metering pauses from the tanks through the pumps and – if present – the volume flow meter and back into the tank. This allows the required temperature to be maintained and adjustments to the machine to be made without loss of material. In addition, fillers are prevented from settling in the metering hose due to the material coming to a standstill. Before dispensing, the circulation system is switched off.
