Control your productivity through advanced materials management:
Gravimetric Gateway™ Networking Software
In any plastic processing facility gravimetric blenders play a unique role. They control and measure the exact weight of each material component as it enters the process. Gravimetric Gateway,
available as an option, is a networking software package that allows plastic processors to utilize
this information to its fullest potential.
Take a test drive:
Gravimetric Gateway can be tested in demo mode free of charge at HYPERLINK
"http://www.maguire.com/page.php/downloads.htm"
http://www.maguire.com/page.php/downloads.htm
Key Gravimetric Gateway™(G2) features:
Material Usage Reports: Usage reports can be
generated based on many combinations of criteria such as time, date, blender ID number, part
number, work order number, operator number,
recipe number, material type, etc. Alarm
Functions: G2 detects any alarm in the network
and reports location and description of the
alarm.
Ability To Download/Update Recipes: G2 users
can download recipes to be certain that the correct recipes are running on the proper machines.
Recipe settings may be updated from a remote
location according to part number, work order
number, operator number, recipe number, etc.
Security: Extensive security functions are provided to selectively limit access to recipes and
blender operation. There are 3 classes of user
password security with predefined templates:
Administrator, Supervisor, and Operator. Each
user’s privileges may be further refined by adjust-
ing over 30 different security fields.
Advanced Inventory Management Programs:
Inventory levels can be monitored, and reorder
points can be flagged to notify purchasing when
low levels are reached. In addition a material
accounting record allows entry of material cost to
track inventory value on a real-time basis.
Instant Access To Maintenance Updates and
Upgrades: Software updates and upgrades are
immediately available over the Internet.
Go to http://www.maguire.com/page.php/downloads.htm where new programs or maintenance
updates may be downloaded directly to the
user’s system.
Multilingual Versions: G2 is available in English,
German, Spanish, Italian, French, and Dutch.
Multi-plant Networking: G2 technology expands
the potential for multi-plant and even multinational networking.
All the features of the new 12 -12 control…
plus wireless capability!
Our new optional touch screen control is the first
gravimetric blender control with an intuitive, userfriendly, touch screen and wireless communication,
eliminating the cost of installing cable throughout the
production area.
Internal and external communications occur at speeds
of up to 100 megabits per second and readily links to
other wireless-equipped machines, regardless of the
manufacturer.

Gravimetric Gateway™ Networking Software
In any plastic processing facility gravimetric blenders play a unique role. They control and measure the exact weight of each material component as it enters the process. Gravimetric Gateway,
available as an option, is a networking software package that allows plastic processors to utilize
this information to its fullest potential.

Key Gravimetric Gateway™(G2) features:
Material Usage Reports: Usage reports can be
generated based on many combinations of criteria such as time, date, blender ID number, part
number, work order number, operator number,
recipe number, material type, etc. Alarm
Functions: G2 detects any alarm in the network
and reports location and description of the
alarm.
Ability To Download/Update Recipes: G2 users

Inventory levels can be monitored, and reorder
points can be flagged to notify purchasing when
low levels are reached. In addition a material
accounting record allows entry of material cost to
track inventory value on a real-time basis.
Instant Access To Maintenance Updates and
Upgrades: Software updates and upgrades are
immediately available over the Internet.
