Eurotherm/Barber-Colman, of Leesburg, Va., has released software and hardware for all-electric injection molding machines.
Machinery suppliers and molders can standardize on the Maco DS for both all-electric and hydraulic machines.
The Impact II software eliminates the need to set up the tuning of parameters. After a few cycles, the Impact II allows the machine to take advantage of the inherent accuracy of the all-electric technology.
Another new feature is plug-in cards for the encoder and sensors that control pressure and linear positioning.
