"Smart Mold – Smart Process" – that's the motto for the comprehensive portfolio of plastic process equipment Kistler will showcase at Fakuma 2021. Highlights will include cavity pressure and temperature sensors, the ComoNeo 4.1 process monitoring system and the new piezoresistive miniature sensor for hot runners. Visit us at booth 2319 in Hall A2 – either in person, or virtually via videolink!
Whether you come along to our booth in person or join us virtually, we'll show you how you can use the right sensor technology to make your injection molds smart – with our sensors and plastics processing systems, you'll benefit from sustainably optimized and transparent processes. Here are some of the solutions we will be demonstrating to you at Fakuma 2021:
- Cavity pressure sensors to monitor every single cavity
- New mold temperature sensors to monitor temperature conditioning, flow and cooling
- The ComoNeo 4.1 process monitoring system with an envelope curve function, WLAN and new control features
Preview: miniature pressure sensor for hot runners and 3D printing
A real highlight: your chance to preview the new 4004A pressure sensor for hot runner applications and additive manufacturing! With an operational and measurement range of up to +350°C, this piezoresistive sensor can now be deployed directly on the hot runner injection nozzles: the key to precise characterization of the processes in injection molding. This ultra-compact sensor has a frontal diameter of only 3 mm; it includes TEDS and can be connected with as many as three additional sensors via an adapter, to create one measuring unit. The 4004A should be available as of mid-2022, with three measuring ranges: 500, 1,000 and 2,500 bar.
Everything at a click: Kistler's hybrid booth concept
We have responded to our new location in Hall A2 and the changed conditions for the event by adding a virtual dimension to our booth: customers can use a link to connect individually to one of Kistler's advisers for a discussion about smart plastics processing – even if you are not present in person at our booth. Whether you join us in person or virtually, we'll be delighted to welcome you at Fakuma in Friedrichshafen from 12 to 16 October 2021 – see you at booth 2319 in Hall A2, or live and online.
