New systems from Priamus designed to optimize molding process

Recent product introductions from Priamus (Schaffhausen, Switzerland) are designed to help suppliers of injection molding services improve quality control and process consistency. FillControl software monitors and controls the injection molding process to minimize part defects; control cabinets (pictured) offer real-time melt flow control.

Priamus recently added a data export function to this system, which allows molders to select a range of cycles and store the data in a CVS or Excel format. In addition to measurement data, the system stores quality-related information, controller data, and actual and set values. An event protocol records user notations and adjustments.

The company also has introduced an interface for real-time melt flow control.

Direct control of melt flow is appropriate for a number of applications, such as automatic sequential control, automatic venting, and injection compression processes, says Priamus.

The switching signals to open or close valve gates are usually directly connected with a machine interface that typically is mounted outside the machine. With multicavity molds, in particular, it may be necessary to provide several switching signals in a systematic and orderly manner. For this purpose, several control cabinet systems are offered by Priamus that vary in size and accommodate 16 to 96 switching signals.
