A new stand-alone cavity-pressure monitoring system designed for "zero-defect" production is the first such system from Kistler Instrument Corp., Amherst, N.Y. Its CoMo Injection system monitors and records up to eight channels of cavity pressure during molding and assesses part quality on a pass/fail basis according to preset standards for the cavity-pressure profile. Users can also configure it to monitor four channels of cavity pressure and four channels of machine signals. The process and production monitoring device is compact and mounts on the machine. The system can provide real-time closed-loop control of the entire molding process or just the switchover to holding pressure. Users can access process data remotely through an integrated web browser. A new cabling concept makes CoMo Injection compatible with coaxial and single-wire Kistler sensors, enabling quicker set-up while protecting users from confusing plug connections. One cable combines up to eight cavity pressure signals. CoMo Injection costs $5500. CoMo MIS database software for PC costs $375.
