Fraser, Mich. — PCS Co. is out with a new hot-runner temperature controller and oil filtration system.
The TC50-brand controller comes in two models for six or 12 zones of control and features a 7-inch touchscreen as well as functions for self-diagnostics, mold memory, zone slaving, leak detection and injection press connectivity for the Internet of Things.
"The TC50 is a full-featured yet affordable temperature controller for smaller hot-runner applications," PCS Product Manager Paul Hauser said in a news release. "It is designed to provide users with a system that allows them to easily program, monitor and record their hot-runner processing parameters."
Other features include a group setup function, power balance detection and display, and synchronous heat up and cooldown.
Fraser-based PCS Co. provides the replacement items for the TC50 hot-runner controller, including modules, bus boards, output boards, human-machine interface module and fuses for control and output.
Founded in 1950, the company started as a family-owned business called R&S Tool in Warren, Mich., then merged into PCS, which stands for pins, cores and sleeves, when it was established in 1968. Misumi Group acquired the company in 2012.
