Complete Product-Line Mold-Cavity Pressure and Temperature Sensors

Complete Product-Line Mold-Cavity Pressure and Temperature Sensors

01 April 2006

With the market launch of its new 1 mm temperature sensor, Kistler now offers a complete product line for measuring mold cavity pressure and temperature in the molded component. All sensors are available with 1 mm, 2,5 mm and 4 mm front diameters. Pressure and temperature sensors with the same front diameter have identical measurements and can be inserted into the same borehole. The unique combined pressure and temperature sensor with 2,5 mm and 4 mm front diameter can measure both quantities simultaneously.

Sensors for measuring the temperature of the molded component are used in addition to mold cavity pressure sensors. Mold cavity pressure already reveals correlations of up to 95 % with the molded part characteristics. This can be increased to as much as 99 % by adding temperature measurement.

Kistler surface temperature sensors are equipped with a unique thermocouple system in direct contact with the molded component produced. This system, together with the low mass of the thermocouple, makes Kistler sensors significantly faster than standard thermocouples used in the injection molding process.
