With the miniature cavity pressure sensor type 6008A PRIAMUS SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES extends its range of sensors for the use at limited spacial conditions in the injection mold.
It is a remarkable and unique fact that also with these small dimensions the sensor connecting cable can be detached and exchanged as needed.
As with all cavity pressure and cavity temperature sensors this sensor can be used to automatically detect the melt front for switching purposes – such as the opening and closing of valve gates or the balancing of hotrunner molds.
This way – and opposite to a switching level – the switching signals are only generated if the plastic melt is actually at the sensor position.
At the same time it will be ensured by the pressure value that the molded part is actually compressed.
The cavity pressure signal is still an indispensable tool especially for the process monitoring in injection molding.
