Kistler Instruments Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS


To meet the demand from the injection moulding industry, Kistler has up-graded its widely used CoMo Injection process monitoring system to provide 24 channel capability for use with Version 2.0 software which delivers enhanced functionality and an extremely intuitive user interface.

The main feature of the new software is real-time processing capability for cascade control of the injection phase. The opening and closing of the needles can be activated on an differential or absolute basis by either pressure or time. Used with a PC or dedicated 12.1 inch colour, touch screen monitor in conjunction with the integrated multi-channel cabling for Kistler cavity pressure and temperature sensors, the new CoMo Injection system provides an easy to use moulding process monitoring and control system.

In combination with the CoMo MIS (management information system) and integral Curve Viewer module, the new version now offers sensor, connection system, process control and monitoring through to process data storage, documentation and analysis. As a complete system for zero-defect production, CoMo Injection ensures 100% quality during injection molding.
