Syscon PlantStar, a division of Syscon International Inc., has added an interface communication protocol for Gammaflux hot runner temperature controllers.
Gary Benedix, Syscon-PlantStar vice president, said a medical device molder asked the company to connect with Gammaflux because it needed more documentation to meet requirements of the Food and Drug Administration.
“The customer, like many others, moves their Gammaflux units, following the mold from machine to machine. The Gammaflux protocol was so complete that we were able to develop a methodology to recognize the hot runner controller located at the press and do a plug-and-play setup so the job technician doesn't have to reprogram the PlantStar system with each job change,” he said.
Syscon-PlantStar is based in South Bend, Ind.
