The New eDART System Manager
software report (Click to enlarge)
RJG’s eDART System Manager is the perfect tool for viewing the status of your plant floor. This virtual tool will become the centerpiece of your eDART network, providing a simple interface to access, support, and make adjustments to the jobs running. Users can configure the software screen to replicate a visual copy of the machines on their plant floor. Finding the trouble spots on your plant floor has never been easier. Viewing overall machine status and part quality, arranging machines into groups or into layouts that match the facility, and receiving notifications of critical changes are just a few features of the new web based interface. Contact us for details.

TZERØ is the Next Level of Systematic Molding
Would you like to reduce waste, save time, and create a better design for manufacturability (DFM) experience? Collaboration between design engineering and manufacturing has gotten less frequent as the two have diverged. Does this sound familiar? Getting all the elements right from design, material, machine performance, and process is a daunting task. RJG is not only the leader in systematic molding principles, but now offers a scientific DFM process. Typically, designs are created, plastic materials selected, tool material selected, a hot runner manufacturer selected, and the steel cut. The results are then passed to manufacturing to make parts. Transparency between all the departments and suppliers are lost in many cases.

Our unique approach provides a framework for collaboration between engineering and manufacturing in review of part design and simulating, educating, optimizing, and assessing the mold development process to avoid molding uncertainties and resolve existing injection molding problems. Getting the inputs right the first time with scientific outputs for the injection molder and a documented recipe for launching a new mold effectively is now possible. Hope is no longer the necessary strategy when the mold is launched the first time. RJG also provides exclusive, value-added services, personal instruction, training, and consulting to sustain the entire end-to-end process. We will be using the latest tools and training to support this new business. Contact us for details.

Flow and Temperature Sensor
Cost Effective Way to Monitor Your Water Lines
RJG will now offer Burger and Brown’s new Smartflow Flowmeter. This product gives you the ability to easily see if there are any changes in the mold coolant flow rates or coolant temperatures. Detecting changes in the flow rate and the coolant temperature can help prevent problems with parts due to insufficient cooling. The product attaches to your water lines and connects to the eDART System via an Analog Input Module (IA2-M-FT). Templates and alarms can be set around the readings from the Smartflow Flowmeter and easily viewed and managed from your eDART System. This product is engineered to be more robust, cost effective, and easier to integrate with the eDART System than prior solutions.

Easily Interface to Multiple Strain Gage Sensors
This low profile, robust hardware system simplifies in-mold installations for molds with four or more sensors and saves real estate on the mold. The multichannel cavity pressure system, unique to RJG, allows injection molders to connect up to eight strain-gage sensors to one connection point on the mold. Injection molders who want to reduce the footprint of hardware on their molds and/or save costs over other multicavity sensor solutions in the industry, can now use RJG’s Multichannel Strain Gage system. Contact us for details.

Lynx Piezoelectric Adapter with Mold ID Capability
RJG announces an improvement to its already powerful PZ/LX8F-S-ID Eight Channel Piezo Adapter. The PZ/LX8F-S-ID provides piezoelectric cavity pressure sensor users with a convenient, simple interface to eight channel piezoelectric systems. This device identifies the mold when used with RJG’s Piezoelectric Connector with Mold ID Capability. Coming in 2015 is a reduced size version of the PZ/LX8F-S-ID which will make instrumenting high cavitation molds even easier. Stop by our booth at NPE to check it out. Contact us for details.

New LynxTM DIN Rail Modules
RJG has released our new Lynx DIN Rail Modules. These modules feature new shielded metal enclosures and cables, making installation and troubleshooting easier while increasing immunity to interference in electrically noisy environments. All this is accomplished while maintaining the convenient DIN Rail mounting and easy-to-read status LEDs. Modules available are: Sequence module (ID7-M-SEQ), Analog Input module (IA-M-V), Relay module (OR2-M), Analog Output module (OA1-M), and the communications adapter (DIN/LX-M)
Contact us for details.

The eValuator
The new In-Mold Sensor Tester provides tool builders and molders alike a way to test up to 30 in-mold sensors at one time for proper operation. Testing sensors prior to putting the mold into production can save a considerable amount of lost production and troubleshooting time. The product offers an easy-to-use interface on a tablet. Contact us for details.

*GRANT FUNDING FOR TRAINING*
Most states have grant money for training available through community & technical colleges, chambers of commerce and county workforce development boards. The more technical the training the more funding is typically available. Your RJG Account Coordinator can provide tips for how to seek funding & questions to be sure to ask. For example, some grants allow for concurrent grants from additional funding sources so it is best to inquire of all potential sources.
