As Seen In Plastics Technology

INJECTION MOLDING: New Monitors, Controls, Sensors
New capabilities include the OPC-UA interface for Industry 4.0 communications.

INJECTION MOLDING: More User-Friendly Process Monitor
More monitoring channels and digital outputs, and software features to make it easier to use.

INJECTION MOLDING: Sensors & Controls at NPE
New approach eliminates damage-prone sensor cables between cavity inserts and the mold base.

INJECTION MOLDING: New Cavity Sensors & Controls
Sensors with replaceable cables and a new CoMo DataCenter for multi-machine monitoring.

Conference Presents Machinery Systems for Thermoplastic Composites in Automotive
Three suppliers of injection machines and one of in-mold sensors will present the latest technology for injection overmolding of composites.

Injection Molding at K 2013: Doing More with Less
More productivity with less energy consumption and capital investment; more operations in the machine or manufacturing cell with less time, labor, energy, and capital—these were the common themes of injection molding exhibits at October’s K 2013 show.

K 2013 Preview: Injection Molding
Next month’s mammoth triennial plastics show in Düsseldorf, Germany, challenges injection molding machine builders to demonstrate technological leadership in addressing the needs of the marketplace.

News in Injection Molding Control & Monitoring from NPE2012
There were also several interesting developments in injection molding control and monitoring systems at this past April’s NPE2012 exhibition in Orlando, Fla.

Injection Molding at NPE: Speed, Automation & Integration Take Center Stage
Hot buttons at the show will be multi-component molding, in-mold labeling/decorating (IML/IMD), in-mold assembly, medical molding, liquid silicone rubber (LSR), micro-molding, and high-speed packaging.

Enhanced Cavity-Pressure Monitoring and Control

Enhanced Cavity-Pressure Monitoring and Control
CoMo Injection, a cavity-pressure monitoring system from Kistler Instrument Corp., Amherst, N.Y., that controls the injection process in real time, has several new enhancements.

Cable-Free Sensors For Cavity Pressure
A new line of cable-free cavity pressure sensors is said to simplify sensor handling and mounting while increasing flexibility and reducing maintenance.

Computer-aided thermal analysis

Unbalanced? No Shortage of Ways to Fix Uneven Filling of Multi-Cavity Molds
The accepted ground rule for balancing melt flow in multi-cavity injection molds is to achieve equal flow distance from the injection point to each cavity.

Sensor Guards Molds From Excess Clamping
A new piezoelectric quartz strain transmitter designed to prevent over-clamping of mold halves in injection machines is new from Kistler Instrument Corp., Amherst, N.Y.

New In-Cavity Sensors For Small Moldings
New or improved in-cavity sensors for melt pressure, temperature, and mold protection are available from Kistler Instrument Corp., Amherst, N.Y.

Cavity-Pressure System For Process Monitoring
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.

New Melt Monitor line of sensors

What to See at NPE 2006: Control and Monitoring
Web-based or wireless monitoring, combined temperature and pressure sensing, cost-saving modularity, and better ways to display and report process and production data are some of the advances in control and monitoring that will be presented at this year’s NPE.One development that could have the broadest implications is Watlow’s new EZ-Zone ST modular “integrated architecture” for temperature control loops.
