Priamus System Technologies announced that its range of miniature cavity pressure sensor type 6008A has been extended for use at limited special conditions in the injection mold.
With these small dimensions, the sensor connecting cable can be detached and exchanged as needed, the German equipment supplier says. As with all cavity pressure and cavity temperature sensors, Priamus’ sensor can be used to automatically detect the melt front for switching purposes, such as the opening and closing of valve gates or the balancing of hot runner molds.
In this way, and opposite to a switching level, the switching signals are only generated if the plastic melt is actually at the sensor position. At the same time it will be ensured by the pressure value that the molded part is actually compressed, according to Priamus.
