Milacron’s Mold-Masters Brand Launches New Software Platform for High-Performance Temperature and Process Control Systems
September 9, 2015
Milacron Holdings Corp., an industrial technology company serving the plastics processing industry announced its new Adaptive Process System (APS) for its Mold-Masters melt delivery control technologies.
The new APS will now be used in Milacron’s entire core controls products, including hot runner controllers, E-Drive, Sequential Valve Gate, SEVG, E-Multi, SmartMold, and any future controls developments.
Milacron’s new APS technologies sets the benchmark for the plastic processing and melt delivery markets and will serve to strengthen Milacron’s position atop the injection molding process controls market. Kevin Bamford, Mold-Masters Director Global Control Systems, commented “Mold-Masters TempMaster line of process control systems are designed for unparalleled performance and ease of operation. The new APS takes the industry’s best control units to a level unmatched in the plastics processing industry.”
The improved APS features a number of propriety technologies including an adaptive auto tuning heat control as well as an adaptive motor control with auto tuning for maintaining precise linear movement.
The APS technology will solve a number of common issues injection molders face including the ability for the system to adapt to difficult engineering materials, high pressure, small shot size, high viscosity and electrical environment variations. The APS’s ability to self-adjust speed to maintain 0.1F control accuracy, adaptive control low mass – high watt density nozzle and auto staged heating system will ensure perfect parts every cycle.
Other highlights of the APS include:
- Short circuit protection
- Auto even heat to ensure proper thermo expansion
- Auto softstart and continuous GND fault detection
- Auto-TC slave, Auto-Purge
- Intelligence leak detection
- Auto alarm with water flow system that includes flow, temperature and pressure measuring
- SVG with auto diagnostic and precise valve pin position monitor plus speed monitoring
- SAMPLE – ANALYZE – EXECUTE – FEEDBACK close loop process control
- All features utilize fully integrated IO alarms for mold and machine protection
Each process control system offers features that are suited to specific applications. Milacron process control systems are compatible with global industry standards and feature a user-friendly interface. Our commitment to quality ensures that our process control systems in your multi-cavity tools can produce the finest finish, the lowest vestiges and the best cosmetics in the industry.
The entire lineup of Mold-Masters TempMaster control technologies will be on display at this year’s upcoming Fakuma 2015, an international trade fair for plastics processing on October 13-17, 2015 in Germany.
The new Milacron continues to push the boundaries of possibilities in plastics with breakthrough products from leading brands including Milacron, Mold-Masters, DME, Ferromatik, Uniloy and CIMCOOL.
