Universal hopper

Granulate for the production of plastic parts is usually fed to the injection molding machine via a permanently installed hopper. If the material is changed frequently or if small quantities of material are processed, the fixed hopper is unsuitable for handling.
In order to apply e.g. cleaning granulate safely and without spillage at the injection molding machine, a universal hopper is therefore ideally used. This has a magnetic base and can be quickly replaced on the machine. With an integrated closing slide, an exact and economical dosage of the respective material is made possible. This means that a universal funnel is also ideal for sampling or for processing very small quantities.
