German term or phrase: Verwiegesystem
This comes from the part in a tender for a mono layer line describing the gears and controls:

Die Drehzahlsteuerung soll entweder manuell (Maschinenführer) oder automatisch (Plast-Control Verwiegesystem) erfolgen.

Reference information:
Reifenhäuser is a major manufacturer of plastics extrusion machines (extruders). They are used to produce films, pipes, and other profiles in a continuous strand. A 'mono' extruder produces a single layer (flat sheet) of material. The weight of the feed material and the speed of the extrusion screw (Drehzahlsteuerung) determine the thickness and density (= quality) of the extruded product.
