At NPE2018, SISE presents its new generation of multi-zone controllers (MV3). Soon, these controllers will be able to control as many as 336 zones. They are available in five sizes (XS, S, M, L and XL) with three available power cards (2.5 A, 15 A and 30 A). They are adaptable to the packaging, automotive, cosmetics, medical and technical-parts markets.

SISE uses a 10 in.- or 15-in.-touchscreen display that run on Linux-based SISE software for the controllers. SISE says that the MV3 controllers have easily accessible power and thermocouple cards on removable pivoting shelves that enable useful, advanced functions like four soft starts, zone grouping, PTI function for thermocouple anomalies, Moldscan for real-time hot-runner diagnostics and material-leak detection. The system is multilingual (11 languages are available) and offers unlimited mold-file memory.

Lastly, the MV3 communicates with injection molding machines and can save and monitor production temperatures. SISE says that the controllers are suitable for Industry 4.0 installations.


  • Injection Molding at NPE2018: A Showplace for the ‘Smart Factory’

    In Orlando, you’ll glimpse the future, and it’s automated and interconnected. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways for plants of all sizes to get in on these trends.

  • Recycled Content: A Hot Trend in Packaging

    Using recycled content in packaging reduces the environmental footprint of the package and incentivizes recycling. There are plenty of technical solutions to overcome the barriers.

  • Augmented Reality Is Getting Real

    When every worker in a plant has glasses on—not standard-issue safety goggles but wearable displays—Scott Montgomerie believes industry might look back at this time as the tipping point for adoption of augmented reality on the factory floor.
