Production in multiple ways in the same production cycle eliminates head changes and production interruptions.

Multi-Color heads can be completely removed from the extruder barrel in 10-15 minutes, then the extruder can be restarted by running a single color, at full capacity, minimizing interruptions and therefore downtime.

The Multi-Color / Multi-Shape system eliminates the costs of mixing and executing different productions to achieve the desired color of the final product and the combination of shapes.

The matrix is ​​available in 2-, 3-, and 4-color configurations and shape configurations; It can also produce marble or bi-colored products, both dry and semi-wet.

All systems are designed to use a matrix disc and cutter head.

The liquid dye is injected into the matrix through high pressure dosing pumps, which ensure the highest quality of the finished product.
