Why Choose the Pulse Controller?

Over the last decade, there has been a trend to integrate hot runner temperature controls into injection molding machines. While this may seem like a good idea, but molders are sacrificing a lot of value that comes with a specialized hot runner temperature control like our Fast Heat Pulse controller. In addition, our temperature controller is a valuable tool for other applications such as extrusion, compression molding, and any application with simplicity, precise control, and work-cell integration are essential. Overall, the Pulse controller is exceptionally accurate and consistently reliable.
