CHICAGO — Gas Injection Ltd. (Booth E10018) is showing one of its new control consoles for gas-assisted injection molding, called the PPC 2000 2MF.

PPC stands for phased pressure control. The control system can be enlarged as a processor expands gas-assisted molding capacity. Each PPC can control four independent gas-delivery systems on four molding machines simultaneously, or a central console can handle PPC satellites through a local computer network plus six more machines.

Gas Injection, based in Cheshire, England, also is displaying parts made by its process, including computer housings, automotive parts and television cabinets. The firm said six companies molding TV cabinets in Southeast Asia and China use its technology.
