Wireless system for monitoring extrusion process
The Accutech wireless technology from Adaptive Instruments provides processors with a cost-effective, stand-alone solution for monitoring variables such as melt temperature, pressure, screw rpm, and motor load from remote or hard-to-access locations.
Since the system is non-invasive and requires no wire installation, permits or licenses, it can also be used for process data collection or to test the viability of a new project.
“Our system is unique in that it’s a fully functional and portable wireless package, ready to use out of the box,” says Aneglo Firenze, president and CEO of Adaptive Instruments.
To address concerns about reliable and secure data transmission, the Accutech system uses two-way communication to provide checks and balances to ensure accuracy and permit self-diagnosis.
Davis-Standard was the first extrusion equipment manufacturer to apply this new technology.
