Smart solutions for materials handling

Combining performance and energy efficiency

Our materials handling range includes flexible and energy-efficient machines and systems for processing flowable bulk polymer materials. Smart, Industry 4.0 capable SOMOS® conveying, drying, dosing and mixing components are in service both as individual machines and as complete lines for all conventional types of plastics processing. These high-performance machines share a common technology base. Their outstanding feature is their great flexibility due to a modular design which means that they can easily be adapted to a particular production setting. Our engineering expertise means we can meet your demanding requirements for the quality and reliability of SOMOS® systems.

Smart dosing and mixing technology

Accurate dosing and mixing of components are vital to the production of high-quality material mixtures. The latest smart systems are essential for reproducibly producing a uniform material mixture which complies with its formulation.
