Hot runner temperature controller Simple to operate and economical temperature control for hot runners
Canada — The new Temp Master-ME hot runner temperature controller from Mold-Master has been launched for global release. The ME platform is focused on providing a controller unit that is economical, simple to operate/maintain and available with short lead times (off the shelf/ready to ship).
Canadian hot-runner specialist Mold-Master offers a new controller, featuring low cavitation moulds (12 zones max) in a compact and lightweight package. Temp Master-ME is equipped with the company's proprietary Auto-Tuning APS (Adaptive Process System) algorithm that continuously monitors, learns, predicts and automatically adapts to process variables of each individual zone. APS is standard on all Temp Master controllers which allows users to optimize the performance of any hot runner system.
Benefits include precise control accuracy, high system reliability, enhanced part quality & gate vestige as well as improved part consistency and reduced scrap. Apart from that, the controller has lower power consumption and simple operation. The unit is operated by a 5'' full color LCD touch screen from which up to twelve zones can be monitored at once. Navigation is intuitive and requires little to no training, the company states. Unis are available with six or twelve zones (15-Amp per zone). Control cards are integrated into the unit which provides the power to control a wide range of heated zones which includes anything from nozzles to manifolds.
TM-ME also supports 13 languages which includes: English, French, German. Spanish, Polish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Czech, Italian, Hungarian, Turkish, Portuguese, Korean. Supply voltage is 200/240v 3P Delta or 380/440v 3P Star (480v, 3P with transformer).
Temp Master-ME is packed with Soft Start, Wet Heater Bakeout, Continuous Ground Fault Detection, Overload Protection, Automatic Tool Diagnostics, Plastic Leak Detection, Tool Storage and more. At only 36 x 39 x 20 cm it saves a significant amount of space. In situations where additional units are required, they can be stacked on top of one another. The 6-zone/15-Amp control cards can be accessed by removing the top and bottom (if applicable) cover where zone fuses are instantly accessible. Users can also access power fuses from the side of the unit. Mold-Masters on-site support is also available upon request.
As the TM-ME is a standardized off the shelf unit, inventory will be held at various global facilities, so they are ready to ship and available with short lead times (24-48 hours). Additionally, customers have the option to order this controller with their choice of industry standard mould plugs.
