Temperature controllers

A communication cable and a software modification enable multiple Gammaflux hot runner temperature controllers to operate as a single unit. Linked in a daisy chain configuration, two or more smaller TTC 2100 units, operated from a single touch screen, can manage the hot runner of a larger mold. Gammaflux Managing Director Rene Bertschi says that at a cost of $500, the capability will be welcomed by operators who only occasionally use molds with a very high number of control zones. Gammaflux has also added a sequential startup function to the TTC 2100 that provides time- and power-controlled heating of a hot runner mold system, intended to reduce consumption of electricity at peak load rates that often accompanies the start of production when all molds and machines are brought online simultaneously.
