Temperature affects every step of the injection-molding process and must be appropriately managed. Inadequate or excessive temperatures can leave flaws in the finished product and damage the injection machine. During the injection process, temperatures that are too low can lead to flow marks or wavy lines on the surface of the finished part. Identifying and controlling the temperatures at each point throughout plastic injection molding will ensure that the process runs smoothly. Knowing the flaws that can occur in the

HMI Remote Monitoring and Control

Fast Heat hot runner temperature control industrial offers two options for HMI remote monitoring and control. We first offered VNC Viewer with the advent of newer touchscreen HMIs.
