Tracer®VMA with AutoReg™

Tracer®vma Electronic Flowmeter with AutoReg™ is a flowmeter with flow regulator that automatically adjusts the connected flow regulator opening, resulting in a more consistent flow rate and greater control over cooling water conditions without manual adjustments.
Automatic flow regulation compensates for changes in pressure that can occur during normal production due to in-line press startup or shutdown. The AutoReg can be programmed to maintain a steady cooling water flow rate or Reynolds Number essential for consistent molded part quality.
The flowmeter employs reliable vortex shedding sensor technology to monitor liquid flow rate and temperature. The control circuit provides programmable switch set points for high or low flow or temperature and turbulent flow rate (FCI Technology). Analog Outputs for flow and temperature are selectable for connection to data acquisition system or PLC. The totalizing function and BTU’s per minute calculation are also included with this model.
This flowmeter may be ordered with remotely mounted user interface. The user interface can be positioned up to 9.5 feet away from the flow body.
Sealed pushbuttons configure the flowmeter and switch operations through bright color LCD display and user-friendly menus. The SPDT switch can be wired directly to an alarm circuit in a process controller or other peripheral equipment such as low voltage stack lights.

FasTie® Quick Ejector Tie-In System

FasTie Quick Ejector Tie-In System includes couplers and pull studs that quickly "tie-in" the mold ejector plate to the press ejection system in an injection molding machine, dramatically reducing mold change time. The greatest time savings are realized in presses where space is limited and the ejector system is difficult to tie in using solid knock-out bars..
In a typical installation, the FasTie coupler is installed into the press ejector plate. The quick-connect locking mechanism in the coupler snaps mechanically onto the mold-mounted stud during mold installation.To release the ejectors, apply shop air to the coupler. The coupler opens to release the stud, disconnecting the press and tooling ejector plates. The coupler remains in the open position, ready for a new mold to be set.

For multiple ejector locations, an air manifold is recommended to release all couplers simultaneously.

Four FasTie sizes are available: 1-inch, 1-3/8 inch, 2-inch, & 3-inch models suitable for most presses and knockout configurations.

Features and Benefits
  • Faster Mold Changes
  • Various Thread Sizes Available
  • Flexible Modular Installation (Center Ejector or Multiple Knockouts)
  • No Mold Modifications Required
  • Reduced Wear, parts stay connected during molding cycles
  • Connects Mechanically
  • Disconnects Using Shop Air
  • Retracts Completely for Full Ejector Stroke Utilization
  • Hardened Steel Materials
