Atlanta-based SISE Plastic Control Systems Inc. now offers a full line of valve gate controllers for medium to large injection molded automotive applications, such as bumpers, dashboards and panels.
The IS-BASIC controls up to 12 valve gates and two openings/closings per cycle. Valve gates can recognize up to 128 molds and store up to 48 sequence files. The controllers have six mold sensors, so SISE can capture information from inside the mold and allow molders to precisely monitor valve gates.
For molders that are making their first move into sequential valve gate control, SISE offers the IS'TIMER, a simple timer-based control for small applications, of eight gates or less.
