Moretto announced that it has opened a new office in Shanghai, China that has begun operation in May. Paolo Gasparotto, the company's Business Development Manager revealed the news at CHINAPLAS 2017.

"One of the reasons we open the new office here is because our new international key accounts in, for example, the automotive and medical industry, are looking for our presence not just in other countries but also in China," he explained.

"They trusted us in Europe and are looking for us in China to have the same equipment installed in their plants here."

The new office in Shanghai, which includes a warehouse, offers technical support for customers as Gasparotto maintained that production will remain in Italy to ensure the high quality standard being met.

He said China is an attractive market because high quality, automated plastics processing equipment like the ones Moretto offered is in demand.

"In China the labor cost is increasing a lot, so the trend is to develop more and more automated processes inside the plant. For this reason they are looking for companies like Moretto that can serve them with turnkey solutions."

The quality level of Chinese customer is increasing a lot in the last five to 10 years, he said, and the speed of that climb is dramatic. This is another reason for establishing the Shanghai office.

"I would say it is better to do business if we can speak the same language in China, so now we have some colleagues that connect directly with Chinese customers. I would not say that is easy, but at least we can let everyone know what we produce, and in which terms and quality," Gasparotto explained.

Being able to offer turnkey solution is key for Moretto, because the global trend in the industry, as Gasparotto observed, is to look for a single supplier to avoid complications. This is particularly true for bigger companies. "They would come and say, I need more efficiency in my plant, can you take care about that?"

"And of course we can," he emphasized. "Moretto is able to offer more than 5,000 items, from drying, conveying, dosing, grinding, temperature control, shredder, storage and one of the most advanced monitoring and control system."

Moretto brought to CHINAPLAS 2017 the newly developed MOISTURE METER, an in-line resin moisture analyzer that is unique in the market. The instrument enables users to certify the production of plastic parts and, when installed directly on the processing machine, measures the actual moisture content of the plastic granules.

No calibration is required and it is only necessary to select the polymer, from an included materials database, to be treated and it will continuously control the process with sampling every 10s.

The meter is equipped with Ethernet, USB, RS485 communication ports and is compatible with the Moretto Mowis supervising system. With an upgrade to MOISTURE METER PLUS, it is also possible to control the dryer performance by comparing the humidity from the initial part of the process to the end and automatically adjusting the dryer parameters to ensure optimal drying.

This concept creates a closed loop connecting the material, dryer, process quality, and plastic processing machine, resulting in a condition towards Industry 4.0.

Gasparotto elaborated on the topic futher, "I suppose the next step of Industry 4.0 is always to have control about the whole process in the plant. For example, in a company the technology level of each department is very high, so what we do next is to link all the departments using human-like interactions on the machines."
