Setup of the Moudling cycle
The control of the closing force is performed using the Automatic Press Control that must be installed in combination with the Closure Force Control option.
The PLC controller for the press is provided with a user-friendly Touch Screen Display and permits the free definition of the moulding cycle by setting:
- the displacements of the moving platen of the press,
- the closure force for each closure step.
- the temperatures of the platens (a specific temperature and thermal gradient can be set for each step)
Three Moulding cycles can be stored. Each cycle includes 24 moulding steps (including displacements, temperatures setups and pressure setups)set multiple pressure regulation steps within the moulding cycle.
As a result, you can prepare totally customized moulding cycles, which include multiple temperature and multiple force steps !
Calibration of the Closure Force
The closure force system is calibrated using a reference force sensor which is placed between the platens of the press.
The Calibration certificate supplied with the machine includes the calibration of the force at several force application streps.
