The Piovan Fdm solution

Piovan Fdm designed together with Fernholz a Siemens PLC-controlled material handling system with two GDS7 loss-in-weight gravimetric dosing units: this enabled both the precise dosing of each system component and the control of the extruder. A centralised vacuum unit was also installed to serve multiple receivers simultaneously.
