Altanium family expanded with hot runner controller

Husky Injection Molding Systems has a new addition to its family of hot runner temperature controllers with the launch of Altanium Delta3. Bridging the gap between the functionality of the existing Neo2 and Matrix controllers, Delta3  offers an integrated, intelligent platform for two to 128 zones of control and helps customers achieve increased part quality and improved uptime.

“The introduction of Delta3 to Husky’s AltaniumTM family of controllers allows us to provide premium performance and functionality at an affordable price,” said Matthew Cummings, Husky’s Product Manager for Altanium. “Delta3T is designed with a new intelligent feature set, which makes it smarter and more intuitive than other controllers on the market. This enables a more customised moulding solution, and helps customers achieve the most consistent, repeatable and accurate temperature control possible, regardless of their moulding needs.”

Delta3 is equipped with a variety of enhanced features to improve operational efficiency. An improved, highly intuitive navigation method coupled with a large, full colour touchscreen shortens the learning curve for new users and ensures fast and consistent start-ups. Automatic storage and recall of set-ups ensure the same processing parameters are used for a mould without operator intervention. Multilingual support increases user adoption while historical event auditing and enhanced process monitoring enables faster, more accurate troubleshooting.

Delta3 has advanced monitoring capability to further eliminate the risk of bad parts entering the downstream process. Integrated mould protection prevents material degradation and addresses issues before part quality is compromised to decrease downtime and reduce risk during operation. Real-time power deviation monitoring enables Delta3 to automatically detect signs of plastic leakage and impending heater failure, mitigating damage to the mould. In addition, Delta3 has been designed on a platform that supports network connectivity and closer integration with other Husky products for a more complete system, including remote monitoring capabilities using the Altanium dashboard application.

Having one control card for all Altanium models, including Neo2, Delta3 and Matrix, maximises interchangeability and reduces the number of parts to stock and maintain. The integrated control card design maximizes system reliability by minimising discrete connections and components. Altanium control cards are also simple and inexpensive to upgrade, contributing to lower operating costs while allowing for greater flexibility to grow with changing production needs.
