Omron’s enhanced NT31/631 EV2 operator interface comes with improved functionality and design efficiency. The EV2 models are compatible with the high speed 1:N NT Link, as well as the earlier standard 1:N NT Link. The operator interface has full area accessing, and data areas in the CS1 PCs that were previously inaccessible are now available. As well, the PT can now perform calculation automatically and write the results to the numeral memory tables.

Blenders “talk” to machines, enhance control
An adapter module loaded with translation software allows communication between Maguire Weigh Scale Blenders and other machines in plastics processing operations. The communication system is based on the three most widely used fieldbus protocols in plant-management systems. The Maguire Fieldbus Interface (MFI), enables processors to draw on batch-by-batch material consumption data from the blender to expand control over molding or extrusion in an individual line, or to achieve a new dimension of centralized plant control.
The MFI adapters are available in two forms: 1) a small external module that connects to the serial interface on the blender controller and to the cable linked to the
in-plant fieldbus system; 2) an internal card that replaces the standard RS232 serial port in the blender controller.

Assembly system provides precision, simplicity
Plastic Assembly Systems’ Solution Series 2500IAS high tonnage hydraulic thermal assembly system is a new line of assembly equipment offering the advantages and precision of hydraulics with the simplicity of pneumatic control. Conventional assembly equipment uses pneumatics to control velocity by modifying air pressure regulation. The 2500IAS utilizes hydraulics to control velocity by using an adjustable load compensated speed control.

Non-toxic heat transfer fluid
MR heat transfer fluid is non-toxic and designed for plastics processors that require broad and rapid changes in temperature. The MR fluid provides precise and uniform temperature control from -1C to 288C, making it ideal for the rigid temperature control requirements characteristic of heating and cooling in molds, dies, barrels, screws, press platens, underwater pelletizers and laminating/calendar hot rolls. The fluid, which is non-toxic and odorless, can be added to the system without the need for new water/glycol-based equipment.
