Madison Heights, Mich. – DME Company, a leading manufacturer of mold technologies, has expanded its SmartSeries Hot Runner Temperature Controller product line. The addition of the TSM15 Temperature Control Module gives molders greater flexibility and control of their hot runners.
The microprocessor-based temperature control module increases efficiency for molders by providing enhanced control through efficient touch screen operation. A full-color display gives users easy-to-access readouts and functionality. And an informative display screen helps molders cut down on maintenance requirements by providing them with important diagnostics – including temperature, power and current readings.
“We are excited to bring another temperature control option to our customers with the addition of the TSM15 to the SmartSeries line,” said Craig Kovacic, Applications Engineering and Technical Services Manager. “This model provides molders with a more sophisticated option for applications where advanced control and monitoring are needed. Molders can retrofit their existing control mainframes and upgrade system modules when system expansion or replacement is needed.”
The TSM15’s design allows for maximum flexibility; programming can be customized and reconfigured to fit new tools and environments. Molders can also use the TSM15 controller to number zones in a logical sequence and to configure the units to run in closed-loop or open-loop configurations.
Design enhancements in the TSM15 controller also will help improve hot runner efficiencies. The new system features DME’s proprietary Smart Start® mode to safely bake out damaging internal heater moisture at system start-up to prolong heater life. In addition, the TSM can be configured to prevent boosting of the temperature by 75°C or 135°F to limit the degradation of material.
The TSM15 will be sold in addition to the DSS and DSM models. The TSM15 is fully compatible with all Smart Series or G-Series 15 AMP mainframes. To learn more about the TSM15 Model, visit: http://www.dme.net/catalog/DME/Control%20Systems/index.html#41/z
