Eurotherm/Barber-Colman of Leesburg, Va., said its Extrusion Master 3 controller simplifies setup and makes it possible for an extrusion company with little or no knowledge of process-control theory to optimize extruders and melt pumps.
EM-3 includes an adaptive, automatic-tuning pressure-control loop that accounts for variations in materials and machinery to make a consistent product. Also, EM-3 allows custom HTML Web pages to be loaded into the control system.
Any Web browser then can be used to view the embedded page through the EM-3's Ethernet network. The Web loader uses an interface that guides the user through moving files from a personal computer to the EM-3 control system.
