Hot runner controller for two to 128 zones
Husky Injection Molding Systems Ltd., Bolton, Ontario/Canada, announced a new addition to its family of hot runner temperature controllers with the launch of Altanium Delta3. Bridging the gap between the functionality of the existing Neo2 and Matrix controllers, the new model offers an integrated platform for two to 128 zones of control and helps customers achieve increased part quality and improved uptime.
The hot runner temperature controller is equipped with a variety of enhanced features to improve operational efficiency. An improved, highly intuitive navigation method coupled with a large, full color touch screen shortens the learning curve for new users and makes fast and consistent start-ups possible. Automatic storage and recall of set-ups ensure the same processing parameters are used for a mold without operator intervention. Multilingual support increases user adoption while historical event auditing and enhanced process monitoring enables faster, more accurate troubleshooting.
With its intuitive feature set, the controller has advanced monitoring capability to further eliminate the risk of bad parts entering the downstream process. Integrated mold protection prevents material degradation and addresses issues before part quality is compromised to decrease downtime and reduce risk during operation. Real-time power deviation monitoring enables the hot runner controller to automatically detect signs of plastic leakage and impending heater failure, mitigating damage to the mold. In addition, it has been designed on a platform that supports network connectivity and closer integration with other Husky products for a more complete system, including remote monitoring capabilities using the Altanium dashboard application.
Having one control card for all Altanium models maximizes interchangeability and reduces the number of parts to stock and maintain. The integrated control card design maximizes system reliability by minimizing discrete connections and components. The control cards are easy to upgrade, contributing to lower operating costs while allowing for greater flexibility to grow with changing production needs.
The fully integrated line of Altanium temperature controllers are recognized throughout the industry for accuracy, ease-of-use and flexibility. All controllers of the series use Active Reasoning Technology (ART), providing optimized control for greater shot-to-shot and cavity- to-cavity consistency and repeatability. ART delivers tighter control and minimized variability through best-in-class power output delivery, fully isolated thermocouple inputs and industry- leading thermocouple sample rates that ensure the integrity of temperature readings.
