eDARTTM's New Internal Power Supply
By the end of July the eDARTs will no longer require a separate 24V power supply. Technical advances have allowed us to address customer feedback by relocating the power supply internally. If you have any questions or concerns please contact customer support.
eDARTTM Upgrade 9.1
eDART Software 9.1 is now available. Highlights include:
- RJG Help button – allows users to contact Customer Support right from an eDART
- Enhanced flx functionality – V-P control, Excessive Rejects, and others
- Process Stability Dashboard – now standard on the conx and apex systems

Improved Lynx™ Junction Box
RJG's five port junction box now has an additional bracket to allow for increased flexibility
when mounting to your mold. The 5-port and 9-port Lynx junction boxes can be daisy chained
allowing for reduced footprints and increased ease of implementation. Lynx junction boxes can
be mounted on the moving or stationary platen, mold half or any other convenient location on
the molding machine. Once mounted, the junction boxes allow multiple Lynx devices to interface
with the eDART™ System. Soon, the nine port junction box will also have this
additional mounting bracket.
O-Rings for Static Pin Applications
Static pins are useful in many applications where a moving ejector pin is not available for
instrumentation. However, static pins must be kept clean and freely moving in order to
read pressure correctly. To do this, o-rings are strongly recommended for static pin
applications. An o-ring groove is cut near the end of the pin to keep gases and debris
out. However, the o-ring and groove must be properly sized. RJG can help with the
specification of o-rings for your application.

New release! Mold Deflection Sensor
RJG's new Mold Deflection Sensor captures valuable information that allows you to:
- Establish truly Machine Independent Process Templates
- Resolve issues with parting line flash
Minimize part dimensional issues that are a result of changes in mold deflection
Allow analysis of the differences between deflections in various machines and develop a
systematic procedure for normalizing them
- Resolve clamp force adequacy issues
- Resolve mold robustness issues
Ensure correlations of part characteristics to key molding variables

Soon to be RE Released! RJG's 2 port Junction for Lynx Cabling
Do you ever find a need to connect just two Lynx devices to the eDART and are left with the
choice of running two long individual Lynx cables or using a 5 port junction? The J-LX2 may be your
answer. It reduces lengthy cable runs and occupies less space than a 5 or 9 port junction. We are
anticipating release in the 4th quarter and would like to gauge interest in this product. Please

DECOUPLED MOLDINGSM Workshop - Process Optimization for Injection Molding
This workshop is designed for students who have taken Systematic Molding and is a great course for those that plan on taking Master MolderSMI. Students will learn: how to minimize quality defects, how the four plastic variables affect your part quality, how to make machine problems visible with robust machine validation tools, as well ways to reduce costs and increase profitability.
Upcoming Decoupled Molding Workshop
August 30 - Sept 1
RJG Technology Days
RJG’s FREE Technology Day seminar focuses on systematic processing strategies and advanced processing
technologies that will allow you to consistently manufacture the highest quality parts. Molders are finding
that three key components provide positive results: cavity pressure sensors, process control systems and
employee training. Individually, each of these components have a positive effect on part quality, when
combined the results can be staggering. This seminar is a must for anyone responsible for the development
and manufacture of plastic parts or directly involved in part quality issues. The methods & technology we teach dove-tail with most “green” initiatives and our training
can often be offset through green initiative grants.
Upcoming Technology Days
July 20 - South Lake, TX
July 26 - Wilsonville, OR - Newly Added!
