Products & Services

motan-colortronic offers peace of mind by delivering individual products or entire systems for all your materials handling needs – from storage, to crystallisation, from drying to blending and dosing, from conveying to control and instrumentation.

What’s more, our modular products and systems are designed to work in harmony with one another. And can be combined and integrated in line with your needs.

Dosing and Mixing : Perfectly blended, consistent quality - Drying : Lower costs, higher-quality drying Crystallising : Energy-saving systems, reliable longterm operation - Conveying : Automatic conveying, greater productivity - Controls : Intelligent control network, total visibility - Storage : Sophisticated storage solutions, efficient utilisation of raw materials


Combining additives with the virgin material at the processing machine requires excellent mixing quality and consistently accurate dosing. These requirements can be achieved and exceeded with the volumetric MINICOLOR swift V dosing and mixing unit. The units are mounted at the feed throat of the plastics processing machine and are space-saving.
Intuitive colour graphic display with touch screen for easy operation of MINICOLOR swift V.

News & Innovations

COMPACT swift - Energy-efficient 3-in-1 drying technology motan swift - simple units combined with state-of-the-art control technology
The COMPACT swift dryers with integrated conveying are multifunctional and flexible. The dryers are available in two versions, each with a drying bin in sizes of 80 or 150 liters and equipped with up to two hopper loaders, each with a capacity of 4 liters. The COMPACT swift A dryer is also offered with advanced features such as dew point control and dry air conveying function with purging.

Dew point indication and control are offered as standard in the integrated 7’’ color touch display of the COMPACT swift A. The complete drying bin is made of stainless steel and therefore completely rust-free, regardless of the production environment and the material to be dried. Constant and stable conditions are achieved by insulating the complete hopper. The integrated conveying system in the COMPACT swift saves space and money, as no separate conveying system is required.

MINICOLOR swift V - Good mixing quality and precise dosing. The motan group releases a new product brand – motan swift
The MINICOLOR swift V is characterized by good mixing quality and precise dosing. It can be used to add up to two additives to the free-flowing material stream of a main component. For free-flowing main components, depending on the application and combination, there is a choice between two sizes of material hoppers.

The MC swift control of the MINICOLOR swift V can be used for either injection molding, blow moulding or extrusion applications. All parameters can be displayed and monitored via a 7’’ color touch display. The dosing speed is calculated automatically and in relation to the calibrated weight and recipe.

A key feature of synchronous dosing units such as the MINICOLOR swift V is the simultaneous discharge of all material components, with the mass flow thus generated matching the recipe at all times. Therefore, synchronously operating dosing systems usually do not require an active mixer. Further reading
METROVAC swift & METRO swift HOS - The perfect combination for small conveying stations
With the flexible METROVAC swift conveying station, small conveying systems can be operated cost-efficiently. With a wide range of blower sizes, the conveying station can be used for a wide variety of central conveying applications. The three-phase blower is low-noise and maintenance-free. The station is supplied with a blower filter, optionally a cyclone dust filter with collection bin. The integrated VAC swift control with touch-screen display controls up to 8 METRO swift HOS material loaders and up to 8 empty suction valves.The IE3 rated side channel blowers serve as an energy efficient solution for short to medium conveying distances. The blower stations thereby generate a reliable and constant vacuum. The compact conveying station can be placed close to the processing machine to save space. With the VAC swift control, the conveying station can be combined with up to 8 material loaders. METRO swift HOS hopper loaders are also available to match the METROVAC swift conveying station.
