New strain-gauge cavity-pressure sensors, including a smaller, 125-lb model, come from D-M-E Co., Madison Heights, Mich. The 125-lb sensor, which complements 500-lb and 2000-lb models, is suitable for use with smaller ejector pins and small molds or applications where water lines, support pillars, or other mold features inhibit the use of slide sensors. Because each sensor is electronically identical, they practically eliminate the need to recalibrate the readout system when sensors are exchanged. As a result calibration errors are avoided. Operators spend less time setting up control systems and recorders, as well, D-M-E says. Tel: (248) 398-6000 • www.dme.net
