Why In-Mold Sensors?
Why Put Sensors in a Mold?
Simply put, what happens in the mold stays in the part. Cavity pressure and temperature sensors are the proven way to know without a doubt what is happening to the plastic as it forms the part.
Why Measure Cavity Pressure?
Pressure data can help identify:
- Dimensional Variation
- Chemical Resistance
- Warp or In-Molded Stress
Why Measure Temperature?
Temperature data can help identify:
