Multifunctional controller from HESCH ensures the correct plaster mixture

In use at a deco­ra­tive plas­ter manu­fac­tu­rer

… In the begin­ning, small bucket mixers ope­ra­ted by hand are suf­fi­ci­ent for the pro­duc­tion of plas­ters and paints. Due to the incre­asing demand, the pro­duc­tion volume is gro­wing stron­gly (…). If the new mixers are to run effi­ci­ently, this can only be achie­ved by auto­ma­tion. The MFC from HESCH is the right solu­tion.
