Core to the DME approach is its integrated management of the thermal transfer process. In the melt phase care is taken to maintain consistent but not excessive heat, then, at the time of packing, efficiently cooling the part. By managing this entire process we are able to maximize the production of high quality parts.
Faster Mold Changes Saving mold configuration/parameters will allow much quicker mold set up next time.
Reduced Cycle Time Getting detailed information about each channel delta T will allow smarter distribution of cooling and optimized heat transfer.
Improved Part Quality Optimized heat transfer will ensure consistent part quality.
Reduced Scrap Faulty parts due to blocked waterways will be eliminated when monitoring the flow, temperature and pressure rates.
Energy Saving Over cooling or high pressure loss requires more pump energy, Flosense will help adjust this to actual need and guide to reduced pressure loss.
Higher Productivity Scale build up, rust and water contamination will give unplanned production break downs, Flosense will provide data to predict need for planned maintenance.
Batch Tracking & Validation Production batches will have fully recorded documentation which is demanded in many industries including medical.
Maintenance Saving Predict maintenance based on data analysis and avoid frequent scheduled maintenance not required.
Provides Visibility of Key Cooling Circuit Metrics Monitor Pressure, Temp, & Flow in 1-48 Zones Quick To Install & Easy To Setup.
DME Water Monitoring and Control provides:
Now more than ever, molders rely on the control and optimization of the key operating parameters. By doing so, it‘s possible to fully exploit the capabilities of the mold design and deliver optimum production results. Cooling performance of a tool can be overlooked in the design stage and later through limited visibility and control in the production process. By adding the DME Water Monitoring and Control System to your molding process, you are able to analyze the cooling and run your tool at the highest performance level possible. Deviations from target are quickly and easily identified and addressed within seconds.
RESULT: Higher Output of Quality Parts improving your overall investment economics.
Energy Transfer Indicator Heat is transfered from the mold through the water channels, DME Water Monitoring and Control calculates the heat transfer as energy units BTU or kWh. This feature illustrates the effeciency of the process.
Turbulent Flow Indicator Often regarded as a key indicator in the efficiency of a mold cooling circuit, DME Water Monitoring and Control is fitted with a turbulent flow indicator. The unit will indicate laminar, transitional and turbulent flow as well as monitoring the Reynolds number, based on flow diameter and percentage glycol in the system. Improving the flow from laminar to turbulent can increase the heat transfer efficiency by up to 500%.
Alarm Output With programmable alarm limits on flow, temperature and pressure any variation in the values being monitored will trigger an on-screen alarm. An external alarm output signal can be connected to auxiliary equipment which could be a visual or audible beacon, the mold heater or the injection molding machine. Even in a ‘hose burst’ situation the unit will identify a sudden loss of pressure and the unit can either be connected to an alarm or could be used to automatically shut down the mold heater.
Data Recording Data is recorded and stored in the internal memory enough to display data for the previous 30 days. Flow, Temperature and Pressure are logged and may be viewed in the graphing screen. The last 30 days of data is recorded and stored on the internal memory.
Data Export It is also possible to download the data to a laptop using the integrated USB port for further analysis. The data is stored as text file and can be analysed using excel or other analysing software.
