Ancillary solutions provider to the plastics industry, Motan Colortronic Limited, is celebrating its 49th anniversary this year, marking the milestone with its comprehensive stand at the 75th Interplas at the NEC Birmingham, Hall 3A Stand DD4 from 26-28 September 2023.

30 March 2023

The company will be using the platform of the show to display several new and innovative products including:

  • Metro SG-HES single conveying units
  • MetroVac SG three phase conveying stations
  • Luxor dehumidified air dryer with eco protect energy saving system
  • Gravicolor 110 innovative gravimetric batch blender
  • Minicolor SG dosing units with improved control functions and new dosing motor
  • Moisture Minder for measurement of material moisture content


‘Zero Loss’ is our new slogan. Zero loss emphasises sustainability and the responsible use of available resources is at the centre of product development and avoiding material or energy losses through appropriately designed material handling solutions.


The foundation of Motan Colortronic began back in 1947 and since 1973 the company has gained over 49 years of R&D experience in the field of material handling for plastics, including landmark innovations allowing the company to provide materials handling for the complete plastics process chain.


Today, the company operates in five market segments, including injection moulding, blow moulding, extrusion, compounding and in-line with a model range to suit all applications.


Motan Colortronic says the continued development of its products would be lost without the continued development of its personnel. By ensuring expertise in the field of product knowledge, technology, product and application experiences, the company says its people are able to offer first hand, relevant support from single units to central systems.


The company’s product range in 2023 includes the very latest in advanced technology, including its energy saving ETA Plus dryers, Minicolor Gravimetric system for consistent and accurate dosing and its unique dosing disc system, said to give unrivalled dosing consistency.


The moisture minder for direct moisture measurement of material rounds up the advanced range of equipment.


Motan Colortronic Limited is the division responsible for the UK and Ireland. Managing Director, Karl Miller, says it is possibly the oldest surviving ancillary supplier to the plastics industry that designs, manufactures and services its own equipment. “This ensures customers have piece of mind regarding service and support, not just today, but for many years to come” he commented.


The company, which is located centrally in Chesterfield on a two acre site, complete with its Tech Centre, supports its large sales and engineering team with over £1.5 Million worth of equipment and spares plus repair workshop, therefore minimising delivery times to its customers.


“This, combined with our unique web based part finder system allows our customers to find, order and receive spares basically 24/7” Karl Miller continued.


Motan Colortronic’s products are complemented in the UK and Ireland with Regloplas/Reglochill temperature controllers and chillers, Herbold Meckesheim granulators, shredders, pulverisers and complete plastics recycling systems, Sesotec magnets, metal detection flake scan units and downstream equipment from the Maag Group which includes well known brands such as Automatik, Gala, Ettlinger, Reduction and Scheer.


“This allows a turnkey solution to all requirements in the plastics industry from one quality supplier” added Karl Miller.


The complete equipment range is available for viewing and testing in the Chesterfield Technical Centre should customers wish to do so.
