Heating/Cooling: Pressurized Temperature Controller With Cell Connectivity
Wittmann Battenfeld is expanding its Tempro line of temperature controllers at K with a pressurized unit capable of reaching a maximum temperature of 100C.
The Tempro plus D100 temperature control unit from Wittmann Battenfeld can be fully integrated into the control system of a Wittmann Battenfeld injection molding machine—a nod to Industry 4.0. The new temperature controller is capable of 9 kW of heat output and uses a magnet-coupled stainless steel pump to ensure sufficient flow. The pump’s capacity is 0.5 kW, with a maximum flow rate of 40 l/min (10.5 gpm) and a maximum pressure of 4.5 bars (65 psi). The Tempro plus D100 is equipped with a wear-resistant flow quantity measurement device as standard. Like all other Wittmann Battenfeld temperature controllers, The Tempro plus D100 also offers extensive options so processors can configure a temperature controller tailored to fit their needs.
Poor temperature control results in an erratic melt stream and process. Here are some tips on how to get things under control.
In the injection molding process, tool temperature is an important factor in achieving high-quality parts.
A plastics molding plant runs on more than electricity—it runs on water.
