New hot runner temperature control fills gap in Husky’s Altanium line

Intuitive navigation, a full-color touchscreen, automatic storage/recall of set-ups, multilingual support, historic event auditing, and enhanced process monitoring—all this promised in Husky's new family of hot runner temperature controllers, which the Bolton, ON company bills as "bridging the gap" between the functionality of the existing controllers: Neo2 and Matrix.

The Altanium Delta3 offers control from two to 128 zones and is intended to provide premium performance and functionality at an affordable price. Matthew Cummings, Husky's Altanium product manager, said in a release that the Delta3 has a new "intelligent feature set," Husky believes makes it "smarter and more intuitive".  The result: a more customized molding profile, to help achieve the most consistent, repeatable, and accurate temperature control.

Part of that precision comes from Delta3's monitoring capabilities, which serve several functions, including eliminating the risk of bad parts entering the downstream process, integrating mold protection, and preventing material degradation.

How? Husky says real-time power deviation monitoring enables the Delta3 to automatically detect signs of plastic leakage and impending heater failure, mitigating damage to the mold. In addition, Delta3's platform supports network connectivity, allowing closer integration with other Husky products for a more complete system, including remote monitoring capabilities using the Altanium dashboard application.

All Altanium controllers use Active Reasoning Technology (ART), which the company says provides optimized control for greater shot-to-shot and cavity-to-cavity consistency and repeatability.
