Priamus also announced that its cavity sensors are now integrated in injection press controllers made by Keba AG of Linz, Austria.
Conventional sensors are flush mounted, so they touch the part. Prisolaris sensors control the injection molding process without touching the molded part because they are mounted under the mold surface. The Priamus Fill system can now be used to balance mold cavities in hot-runner applications where a sensor mark is not acceptable, such as optical or cosmetic parts.
Prisolaris sensors detect the melt front, a key function for the Priamus automatic switchover from mold filling to holding pressure.
The handheld signal tester type 8951A displays the actual pressure and temperature values, for on-site testing of the measuring signals. It includes an insulation test for all piezoelectric sensors and a check of the sensitivity detection of cavity-pressure sensors.
The company's U.S. operation, Priamus System Technologies LLC, is in Brunswick, Ohio.
